Welcome to the new and improved Free Pattern Friday! If you’re part of our FPF Ravelry group, you already know that Free Pattern Friday is changing a little, now that we’ve made it to the end of the first year. Hard to believe, isn’t it? (You can read all about that HERE). As a fresh new start, I’ll be taking a trip down memory lane over the next few weeks offering some of the more successful patterns as free-for-a-limited-time Ravelry downloads. I’ll also be offering my traditional weekly “treat” which is a little discount valid in my Ravelry store. You’ll just pick up your coupon codes here at the blog and enter the code at checkout.
One little note: You’re welcome to share this promotion with friends, but please share the WEBSITE ADDRESS (www.littlechurchknits.com) rather than the coupon code itself. That way, I get a little bit of extra blog traffic and that helps me a lot!
The New & Improved Free Pattern Friday will begin Friday, February 3 when I’ll be launching a 6 month shawl series! Read all about it HERE.
Today’s free pattern is the light and lovely Yew Tree Cowl, a lacy ring worked in the round. It features a simple lace pattern, a pretty tree motif surrounded by a delicate diamond. This super easy lace pattern bridges the gap between chart knitting and TV knitting. It’s simple enough to knit in the car or in front of the television, yet challenging enough to feel you’re engaged with the pattern. This soft circle is 40” in circumference which means it will hang elegantly in a single loop or wrap twice for extra coziness. It is worked in KnitPicks Chroma, a soft, fuzzy single ply with a gentle color change and a slight thick/thin feel, but will knit beautifully in any fingering weight yarn. Perfect for gift knitting and the perfect project for single skeins of sock yarn! The pattern stitch is presented in charted form only. You’ll find the code at the bottom of the page, free until February 2 😉
Here’s a little extra treat for you! Winter weekend are perfect for accessory knitting, so this week’s special tidbit is a BOGO on the paid-for accessory patterns. Pop in to my Ravelry shop and purchase any hat, cowl, hat or sock pattern and get a second accessory pattern free! Just put the patterns in your cart and enter WINTERFUN in the coupon box. And if you’re mad for shawl knitting, don’t forget the forever free shawl patterns like Diamonds for Lisa, Big Island Wrapper and the Wilson Wrap!
Without further ado, your magical code for today is…WEEK3. Enjoy the pattern!
