On Saturday I started figuring out what pattern I wanted to post for today’s free pattern. I narrowed it down to the pattern for my pumpkin earrings and an old pattern I designed a few years ago, the Katie Cowl. Now, I can’t wait to begin posting Fall patterns, it’s really my favorite time of year, but I also wasn’t sure if anyone else was looking for Fall patterns, so I asked FB if they wanted the pattern for the Katie Cowl or the pumpkin earrings/ applique. The winner, with the results being 29 to 11, was the Katie Cowl, so here it is! But don’t worry, I’ll post the pattern for the pumpkin earrings/ applique soon enough, it might be next week it might be after that, who knows. Fear not, though, you’ll see the pattern because I’m super exited for Fall that the new free patterns will be Fall themed soon enough. Now, while I was writing up the pattern for the Katie Cowl I thought about how easy it would be to create this pattern in the round, so I wrote that up too!

I can’t wait to post next week’s free pattern, which will be the pumpkin but not quite… you’ll have to wait to see what that will be! I really hope you like this pattern and have fun with it. Maybe you could add some fringe? I do love fringe. Have a good week!
