Today is the day. The Twisted Stitches Cowl crochet pattern is available for purchase on Ravelry and Etsy.
A Little More About the Twisted Stitches Cowl Crochet Pattern
The pattern is characterized by the crossed double crochet stitches and the twisted single crochet border that give the cowl its name. The pattern is classified as an intermediate pattern because of the twisting stitches, but with a tutorial, either written or video, it shouldn’t be a problem for an advanced beginner.
The yarn I chose is Rowan Felted Tweed in the Scree color way. It’s a DK-weight yarn, which is rated as a #3 on the label. It was in with some yarn I bought at an estate sale a while back. Any DK yarn will work. I chose this one because I thought it would give some good stitch definition.
This is the first pattern I’ve designed in a while and I’m excited that I can offer it to you now. If you purchase it and make it, I would dearly love for you to use the #twistedstitchescowl hashtag on Instagram and tag me, @jen.nipps.
There will be another pattern using this stitch combination. I’m thinking about making another one or two. I wonder if this would work in a shawl. It would be interesting to play with it and find out. I have some other projects to finish first, including a test for Straight Hooked, but I will soon try it out. If it works out, I’ll release that as a pattern, too.
Here is a tentative schedule of what I have planned out as it stands now:
July: Twisted Stitches Cowl
August: Twisted Stitches Fringe Scarf
September: Fingerless gloves
October: Headband/ear warmer
December: Holiday bundle
This is subject to change. These are just what I’m thinking about right now. the ones that are set are the cowl, since it comes out today, and the scarf, since that pattern is almost finished. In addition, the holiday bundle will definitely happen as well.
I have mentioned before that I am legally blind. I rarely print out my patterns because the print is so small. I use the patterns on my tablet or on a computer so I can make the print as large as I need it. To that end, I aim to make my patterns accessible.
If you have any kind of vision problems and have difficulty reading patterns, please contact me. I will be happy to make it a larger print or even do an audio recording of the pattern and any notes that go with it. The price would be the same as for the standard patterns on Ravelry and Etsy.
What are some of your favorite items to make? What would you like to see patterns for? I like to make things with texture, so I would incorporate that into anything I design. Let me know what you’re looking for. Making things for me is one thing, but I want to make things for YOU too.
