Mr. Orlando's Cowl is now a FREE PATTERN!!!

I was missing my Orlando yesterday so in honor of him I decided to make the "Mr. Orlando's Cowl" a free pattern. It's not a sale, it will be free permanently.

The picture doesn't do this design justice. It's stitched with a bulky weight yarn and works up quickly. I have made a few for myself in a couple of different colors and I love them. The sample was done using Plymouth Yarns Baby Alpaca Grande, but any bulky weight yarn could be substituted and look fantastic. I plan on trying one out with Woolspun by Lion Brand Yarns. Great last minute gift project.

I am working on a few Summer of 2018 magazine submissions and winding down on the book proposal. That should be in by 9/1 ad then it's back to getting some more new patterns up. I have a great Halloween bag and a couple of hat patterns for those already starting on holiday stitching. All three of them will be offered for FREE. :)

My biggest news is that I adopted a new furbaby a few months ago from a local shelter. I will have more on that soon, but in the meantime here is a picture. His name is Neely (yes - after Cam Neely -#8)

Thank you to everyone who has been tagging me on social media with the pictures of their projects of my patterns. I LOVE them, so please keep it up. Seeing everyone add their own style and flair to the designs is thrilling and brings me so much joy. It's why I love sharing my patterns so much with all of you!


  1. I'm sorry to hear about Orlando but pleased to see Neely has made himself right at home!

    1. Thanks JoJo. Neely is very comfortable being spoiled rotten. :) I hope things are well with you & hubby and you are having a great summer!
