Introducing: Hush! New knitting pattern out today!

Hush Cowl - new pattern!

Woohoo! It’s a week all about new patterns and self-promotion, apparently! Sorry about that if you’re not interested in new embroidery or knitting patterns, but these releases are the result of a lot of behind-the-scenes work that just kind of happened to come together at the same time.

Hush Cowl - new pattern!

This is Hush: available on Ravelry here! Hush is a relatively simple colorwork cowl, a yarny nod to the lovely way that snow drifts down to the ground, creating a magical hush wherever it lands. Happy sigh. I love snow so much – is it weird that I’m sad every day that it’s cold but not cold enough to snow? I always say I’d love to live somewhere warm all the time, but I would miss snow so very very much if I ever did that.

Like Flurries, Hush features tiny little cables in place of standard ribbing. Actually, Flurries and Hush started as one idea that ended up separating into two patterns, so I kind of think of them as companions, in a way.

The pattern is fully written, the cabled ribbing is written and charted, and the main colorwork pattern is provided as a full-page chart. It’s written for sportweight yarn, which is awesome (if I do say so myself) because it knits up just that little bit faster than fingering-weight colorwork (great for gift-knitting!) and creates the most delicious squishy fabric! I love the way stranded knitting makes that extra yummy layer of, well, strands, and it’s even better with sportweight. I gotta tell ya, sportweight is becoming my most favoritest weight – it’s just a bit squishy, but still creates a relatively light fabric. (My next pattern uses some really special sportweight too!)

Anyway, I hope you knit it, and I hope you love it – the pattern is now available to buy via Ravelry over here, or via the sidebar right over there to your right (no need for a Ravelry account). Let me know what you think!

Oh, but wait – the guts! Because all colorwork knitters like to admire the guts, right?!
