Spread awareness with this Breast Cancer Awareness Cowl. I worked up this cowl in less than an hour with bulky yarn from Lion Brand. It's worked in this glorious v stitch with a lacy look, available in teen/adult size.
We are de-stashing our pattern stash to start fresh for the new year, so get ready for a bunch of great patterns to come! The de-stashing may lead slightly into the new year as the stash is pretty large.
Also, ad-free PDFs of our free patterns will be discontinuing in the new year, so get what you would like now. We have enabled print, email, and PDF on the print friendly button located with the share buttons on top and bottom of all posts for your convenience. Some more great news, we are discontinuing paid patterns and becoming all free patterns in 2017. Current paid patterns will be available free on the blog later in the year.
