Because Covid 19 was not kind to a lot of people and businesses, I decided to help out Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop from La Crosse, WI and other Participating Local Yarn Shops (LYS). I decided to give your 2021 a fun jump start in 3 awesome ways!
Closing LYS Sales Boost
We are giving away either one of these stitch markers from Fiber Union or an Unwound Mug to the first 15 people who purchase $60+ worth of yarn from Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop either in person or through their online ecommerce site from January 15, 2021(12:00am Central Standard Time)- March 31, 2021 (11:59pm Pacific Standard Time). If you are one of the 15 people who received the freebie, please take a photo of you using the freebie or receiving the freebie and #saveyourlocalyarnshop #unwoundyarnshop #himaymaycreations. We want to send them off with a bang so positive comments and encouraging comments are super accepted!
This pattern is a cowl that is designed for 2 sizes (thinner fingering/sock weight or thicker DK weight). It is a cowl made with brioche and double knitting techniques, so it's a yarn stash eater. Two colors: light and dark, which may both be solid or a combination of solid and variegated. My Pattern is only available here at this time (www.himaymaycreations.com).
Pattern Discount Rules
You must purchase at least 1 skein Malabrigo Sock/Arroyo or 1 skein of a similar yardage, weight, and fiber material (superwash or non superwash merino wool/nylon combo, merino wool, or if you are allergic to wool- 2 skeins of acrylic yarn of similar yardage and weight) at Participating LYS (from January 15, 2021-February 28, 2021) to receive a 25% pattern discount code after purchase. The pattern will be released on January 22, 2021 (12:00 midnight Pacific Standard Time).

Please take a picture of your receipt for verification clearly noting the date of purchase, purchased items, and store where the yarn was purchased)
If you cannot afford to purchase yarn from an LYS but have stock of Malabrigo Sock/Arroyo or similar yarn, at least purchase my pattern at full price from my website from January 22, 2021-February 28, 2021).

Must have a camera or a means to take a photo of their work to post in Facebook for drawing.

You can only use your GC on one Participating LYS. If you choose to purchase from Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop but their supplies are depleted or the store has closed, you may choose another Participating LYS by June 30, 2021. Disclaimer: the information above will not be sold or given away. It is simply a means for me to contact you if you have won. I will not use it to pester you with emails unless you willingly subscribe to my email list.
