The Zylphia Cowl is now available!

See it on Ravelry here.

I just wasn’t done with the lace patterns from Zylphia Pilots Her Airship.  I’m not one for wearing scarves all that much, but I thought I will wear a simple neckwarmer/cowl sort of thing.

Worked in just a little more than a half skein of Bugga!, or your favorite luxury fingering to sport weight yarn, this is a quick, fun knit.  I think, too, if you live where it gets quite cold, you could play with gauge and work this in a dk weight merino alpaca blend…

So…the contest…I make badges for the blog for each pattern.  I’m not sure which I want to use for this cowl.  Leave your choice of the following three (Steph, Cat, or Closeup) in the comments by midnight PST March 26th  to be entered into the drawing for a pdf copy of the new Zylphia Cowl pattern.

To make this interesting (well, for me at least), I’ll give away patterns to equal 10% of the comments…so if 20 people comment, I’ll give away 2 patterns, and so on.

Um….I hope more than 10 people comment, but if they don’t, I’ll still give away 1 copy.

Contest ends midnight, PST, March 27th.  I’ll post the winners on the 28th.
