FOs, Patterns, and Other News
Here at Rows and Roses, I always have so much stuff going on. I want to start doing a roundup post near the end of each month showing finished objects, newly published patterns, and sneak peeks to look forward to in the coming months.
How about let’s start with a bunch of FOs? Here are a bunch of items I finished this month. Some are for me, some are for customers, and some are for a couple of Ravelry challenges I joined this year. They are by no means ALL of the things, but they’re a great little bundle of yarn joy, aren’t they?
Pattern Release: FOTD Hat
The Felici On The Double cowl pattern has done SO WELL! In fact, it surprised me- and surprises me, still- how much everyone seems to love it. The CAL is still going strong, with so many different color combos and creative yarn subs. I just knew we needed more FOTD patterns.
I give you Felici On The Double hat! This hat is worked just like the cowl, except it’s in the round, and includes some decreases. The decreases took me a while to get perfect in order to retain the chevron striping (a plain round crown would have been way easier, but who wants that??)
We are currently voting on the February CAL and KAL in the Ravelry group, and so far, this hat is winning the CAL votes. Come join us!
Never a dull moment
Besides this new pattern release, I’ve also sent in pattern proposals to WeCrochet and Knit Picks. Seven, to be exact. I’ve got proposals in for hats, tops, cowls, and a super cute garland. If even half of these patterns are accepted, I’m gonna be one busy yarny for a while (like I’m not already?? Haha!)
You can keep up with all the goings-on in the facebook group, and don’t forget that the blog is updated fairly regularly, as well. Check out the new posts from this month on the importance of craft-alongs, and different sheep breeds and the types of wool we get from them. The Rows and Roses Calendar stays up to date at least two months out at all times, so you’ll never miss an event if you remember to check it on occasion.
