The holidays are fast approaching, which means I've entered a kind of gift making frenzy. Any day now I'm going to slip into full-on Oprah mode: You get a cowl! And you get a cowl! Everyone gets cowls!
Ahem. All over the top enthusiasm aside, and in the spirit of giving, here are my pattern notes if you'd like to put together a sweet last-minute gift. One skein of yarn and a few hours were enough to whip up this cute little cowl/neck warmer.
I think I've officially been hit by the pattern-writing bug. A friend commissioned me to make some coasters for her to give as gifts for the holiday season. I scanned Pinterest for patterns that I liked, but decided in the end to make up my own.
Thank you to Jeanette Fisher, @wirralgirl1, from Instagram who provided the name Periwinkle for this mini-mandala coaster. A close second goes to Amanda Williams, @yarn_house, who suggested Octa-Gone Crazy Daisy!
