Stephanie, this is such a cute pattern. I will now stop asking myself “Could Stephanie possibly create anything cuter? Could she *be* any cuter?” Absolutely rhetorical! I love all the different styling in your photos. It’s genius to show the project knit in different colors and the multicolored fringe … whoa! Would that I had this when making music in public. Perfect for sashaying and picking, especially out-of-doors! I needs me some petticoats and bloomers!

Next for the copy of the book:
CONGRATULATIONS Michelle!!!

    What a beautiful pattern! I would love to try it. I had to post, since you are on the Rowan porch. My last name, by marriage, is Rowan. It’s so fun, when shopping at my LYS, to give my name when the shop associate looks up the rewards list. I always say, “Rowan, like the yarn!”

  31. Catherine says:

    I wish my faeries would learn to knit, like the elves and the shoemaker. Except my story would be the fairies and the knitter, and each morning to lovely creations from your “Woodland Knits”, book. So fun adventures could be had wearing the magical knits. How about this Garden Gate and Ivy cowl for a trip to the Secret Garden?

  107. Patty rifkin says:

    Every time I see your patterns they are so serene and woodsy, natural looking. It makes me want to sit in the forest and hope some fairies visit while I am knitting. Just need a good book and some coffee and I would be set.

  113. Karen Lauterwasser says:

    Hi! i am not a cowl wearer (hate pulling things over my head all the time) but I can imagine using the colourwork pattern on a hat or scarf, since I am a fan of scrolls and curliques!

  114. This is stunning! I’d hope it would look as perfect on me as it does on you!🙂 x

  115. Sally at Rivendale Farms says:

    Love this pattern! And, only a knitter and yarny geek would compare the Rowan porch to Johnny Depp. (And I totally agree – just to own my yarny geekness.)

  124. eidolons says:

    I’m so excited about your book. I watched your care of magical creatures video and instantly fell in love with your book preview. So. Much. Beauty.

  128. Adrienne says:

    Thats beautiful! I usually don’t wear cowls though I think I would make an exception for this one! Though colorwork is scary… very scary!

  129. Debi P says:

    I love cowls and this one is so unique! I love the theme of the garden gate with ivy. Beautifully done! So very English! Lovely!

  130. Jane Hamilton says:

    Your patterns are the most creative and inspiring patterns that I have ever seen. I would love to win a copy of your book.

  143. Deb says:

    Love the cowl, love your blog and videos, love the book, too! Love, Deb

  144. This one made my jaw drop – absolutely wonderful!

  145. mintypanda says:

    I live so far away from the forest I grew up next to and when I see these I feel at home again. I’m so impatient when it comes to knitting so I usually stick to my crochet, except I love your patterns so much I want to make them all!!! What do I do!?! I must knit all the things!

  146. Kris says:

    Oh how beautiful!!! Would love, love, love to win!!!

  147. kristina boka says:

    I love this cowl! Super cute patterns!!!

  148. Wow!! You work is such an inspiration, I love that you can lose yourself in your designs and become(pretend!) to be someone else and somewhere else for a little while when wearing your knitwear. Almost like Harry Potter and his invisible cloak, X

  149. Stephanie M says:

    Another beautiful pattern! I love your knits so much! Again, it is so cool to see your patterns gathered in one book! Congrats!

  150. Samantha says:

    Oh goodness I feel like I’d wear this to death! Like a wonderful wooly, felted, holey death.🙂 The weather has turned so rainy here and I’m starting to get so cold! (Its not even October! I thought these cold feelings were supposed to wait until winter!) I’d love the pattern, not to mention the book. I have a feeling I’d sooo enjoy flipping the pages with a cup of tea listening to the rain hitting my roof for a few hours!❤

  151. silversquidge says:

    Super cute Rowan porch and I love the cowl too!

  152. Super cute! I love that shade of green – just perfect!

  153. Kris C says:

  154. Melissa K says:

    gorgeous!! I can’t wait to see the other patterns🙂

  155. Marci says:

    This will lbe going on the christmas gift making list! Or, maybe it will just be for me – should be a fun knit for practicing the color work… been looking for something like this.
    thanks!
