Colossal Collaboration

Rows & Roses, Himaymay, and Malabrigo!

Do you love knitting? Do you LOVE Malabrigo? Are you into trying new things? Well well well…. I just may have something for you. Rows & Roses has partnered up with Himaymay Creations to bring you a fun opportunity, at a discount, and with a chance to win big!

Discount, you say?

Why yes I did. Rufina of Himaymay Creations has designed a very special promotion for a cause: she has decided to use the release of her brand new cowl pattern to help save local yarn shops!

The details:
If you purchase any two skeins of Malabrigo Sock from Rows & Roses from now until February 28, you will receive a 25% discount on her pattern.

This gorgeous cowl pattern is knit brioche, using two contrasting colors of Malabrigo sock. The color combo possibilities are endless!

Pattern sneak peek
This pattern will be released on January 22, so if you purchase your yarn before then, I will email you the discount code on the 22nd once the pattern is live.

But wait, there's more!
