This pattern is a reversible cowl knit with 2 techniques (brioche and double knitting). Inspired from a Japanese textile motif. If you purchase the recommended yarn or a substitute from Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop or participating Local Yarn Shops, you will receive a 25% discount code for this pattern during the promo period (January 15, 2021-February 15, 2021).
The first 15 shoppers who spend $60 worth of yarn from Unwound will receive a free Unwound Mug or Fiber Union Stitch Markers. If you purchase this pattern for the full price because you cannot afford to purchase yarn from participating LYS or because you already have yarn stash you want to use for this project, you have a chance to enter a $50 gift certificate drawing. For more details, please check blogpost "Debut Pattern Release Promo".
The PDF you will receive is the complete updated version of the KAL (weeks 1-4; Parts 1-3). If you have purchased the pattern prior to March 1, 2021, you should have received an email or Ravelry message that has the updated pdf file.

Unwound Artisan Yarn Shop is an LYS in La Crosse, WI. Because of COVID-19 and attenuating circumstances, Unwound will be closing their shop at the end of June 2021 or until supplies are depleted. Each purchase from Unwound will support the women who bravely made opened their doors and wares to yarn enthusiasts like me and others in the Midwest.

There is a Knit Along Extra Challenge version of this that is available to Wix App Members! The extra challenge is a 30 day challenge. There is a one time payment of $3 to join the Knitting Extra Challenge. Think of it as a fitness program except it's knitting. All participants will get a free exclusive pattern at the end of the challenge and 70% of the proceeds will go to Human Solutions (a non-profit in Portland, Oregon that focuses on partnering with people experiencing poverty and homelessness in East Portland/Multnomah County to create pathways to housing and economic stability). Would you like to take up the extra challenge?
