One of the dangers of Camp Loopy is finding SO many new-to-me patterns that I have to favorite in my Ravelry queue. (Well, it’s a danger and a bright spot!) I don’t think one could ever see all of the beautiful patterns that are available, due to the sheer numbers that are cataloged there. One that I immediately queued when I approved the Camp Photo was the pattern for Song of the Sea. Isn’t it beautiful? This one was done by Caitlin in Rhode Island as her Camp Loopy Project One.
After it was posted, the author of the pattern contacted me and asked if I’d like to offer a 20% discount to any of you who might be interested in making the pattern for yourself. I think it would make a really pretty gift for someone special, although if you’re like me, you’ll probably have a hard time giving this away once it’s done. If you’d like to take advantage of this, just go to the pattern on Ravelry and enter the word SONG when you check out. This discount will be available to you until July 19th. A big thanks to Louise for making this available to us! (And check out her other patterns, too. I really like the “Another Way” pattern, too. I might need to make that one pretty soon as well.)
Do you need a few yarn suggestions for this cowl? How about Spud and Chloe Fine, The Loopy Ewe Solid Series, Malabrigo Sock, Lorna’s Laces Shepherd Sock, Hedgehog Fibres, Dream in Color Smooshy with Cashmere, Cascade Heritage Silk or Fibre Company’s Road to China Light (I know it’s a sportweight, but that just means it will be a slight bit bigger and it will feel AWESOME!).
The pattern comes with directions for making a short version (to tuck inside your coat collar) or a longer version (to loop around your neck a couple of times.) I hope you enjoy making it!
