I am so excited to announce the release of my newest pattern today! It's called Tiger Owl and is the official knit pattern for the @carolinafiberfest 2020 craft-along! There's a link to the free pattern in my IG profile. Knitted in sport weight, this cowl is easily adaptable to other yarn weights. The size of the cowl can be adjusted (both in the height and the circumference) by modifying the number of tiger owl motifs that are knit. Knit the pattern as written for a loose neck cowl, or modify it to make the cowl completely your own. Modifications will, of course, affect your yarn requirements. Yarns in solid or tonal colorways will work best to show off the cowl's lace; wildly variegated yarns will not. This pattern is appropriate for an adventurous beginner while remaining interesting for more advanced knitters. #TigerOwlCowl #knitting #knittersofinstagram #knitdesign #knittingdaddydesigns #carolinafiberfest #cffcal2020 #carolinafiberfest2020

It’s the last day of my trip to the beach and I’m cruising down the second sleeve on my #gramps sweater. This is such a fun knit, and I’m looking forward to adding the shawl collar next. Pattern is by @tincanknits and I’m using @berrocoyarn Vintage. #knitting #knittersofinstagram

My wife is truly the Button Whisperer. Last night she found these wonderful buttons at @joann_stores that perfectly compliment the flower motif on the back of this sweater. Pattern is Flower Cardigan by @ewelinamurachdesigns, yarn is from @knit_picks. Dropping this off for the #NCStateFair later today. #knitting #knittersofinstagram #FairsAndFestivalsKAL
