I’ve been thinking a lot about gratitude recently and as part of that I’m starting a new Gratitude Program. I’m offering a free pattern of your choice for every $25 spent on my Ravelry patterns. Past purchases on Ravelry definitely apply! I wrote a blog post explaining the program here . Happy knitting!

ABOUT THE PATTERN
The Prairie Rose Cowl features basic decreases and yarn overs to evoke the gentle sweep and shape of wild roses on the tallgrass prairies in Middle America. The Prairie Rose Cowl is long for a draped-scarf feel. Perfect for when you want to show off beautiful knits as the temperature rises. The Prairie Rose Cowl is a quick and easy knit.

I’m super pleased to collaborate with Elevate Fibers on this project in their new prairie-inspired colorway. Elevate Fibers donates a portion of all revenue to help support our National Parks and Forests. Tallgrass prairies used to cover almost 170 million acres in North America but today only about 4% of the prairies are left and a good chunk of that can be found in the Flint Hills of Kansas at the Konza Prairie Biological Station and the Tallgrass Prairie National Preserve.
