Linto Cowl Pattern Complete and a Giveaway


My Linto Cowl has been finished for a week or so but I had my son here for a few weeks and so this post was delayed.  I loved this pattern immensely!  Andrea wrote a clear pattern that showcases almost any kind of fingering weight yarn.


If you have some experience knitting and are a beginner knitter looking to stretch your knitting skills this pattern would be ideal.  The directions are clear and concise.  The details Andrea addressed are perfect for dipping your toes into a textured pattern.


So there is a giveaway of ONE pattern to a person who comments on this post.  The rules are:

-you must have an email or ravelry name so Andrea can contact you.
-you must have a ravelry account - the pattern will be gifted through ravelry on ravelry
-the contest runs from today until next Tuesday - July 26th, noon eastern time.
-the winner will be selected by a random number generator by me
-I will announce the winner here on this post on July 26 and notify Andrea.
-if for some reason the winner cannot be contacted, another winner will be selected after a week through random number generator.


Good luck everyone!!


Thanks for all who participated, what a fun giveaway!  Using the random number generator, I'm happy to announce that the winner is Flyingjen who wrote "This would make great Christmas gifts to teachers! I"m flyingjen on Ravelry. Thanks for the chance."

  7. I love the pattern stitch on this! And the yarn color you chose really shows it off well... I'm always looking for cowls that use fingering weight yarn too - so this is perfect!

  17. It's beautiful and I love the description you gave the pattern, "If you have some experience knitting and are a beginner knitter looking to stretch your knitting skills this pattern would be ideal. The directions are clear and concise. The details Andrea addressed are perfect for dipping your toes into a textured pattern." This is perfect for my knit club with a few that are on the edge of the next skill set but a big love for the cowl. :)
