Cloudy – easy crochet cowl pattern

I’m super excited to bring you this easy crochet cowl pattern, and to use this opportunity to try something new with some of my published and forthcoming patterns.

The experiment :

Cloudy, an easy crochet cowl pattern will be free for a limited time, right here on the blog. During this time, you will also be able to purchase it on Ravelry for 50% off.

You may be wondering why you’d pay for a pattern you can get for free? Simply put: because you love me. I get more from pattern sales, than I do from advertising. Or because you want the pattern stored in you Ravelry library forever, with the rest of your pattern collection.

When the free period expires, the pattern will be available for purchase in all of my sales platforms, at its regular price. It will no longer be available here for free.

Easy peasy.
