*day 4 of the give-away party!* dragon watcher’s hood

hiya knittens! hope you are having a beautiful sunday! i’m so glad you’ve come back to play today. So here we go! Day 4 brings us *dragon watcher’s hood*.

The Dragon watcher’s hood will keep you warm while you wait for dragons to appear.  It is also fitted with 3 tiny bells in case the dragons you meet get feisty. Dragons love music so when you encounter one, just ring the tassel bells to relax them.  Once dragons are relaxed, they’ll protect you forever and always toast your marshmallows to perfection.

You can take a closer peek at the details *here* or buy it now for 5.50 USD.The pattern is also featured in my book *woodland knits.*

Ps. It’s true was having a major morgana le fay when i made this hood! I was dreaming about Merlin and thought we needed a loooong pixie hood with looooong tassels for them to share. It’s time they got along isn’t it? For some reason I missed the show Merlin when I was living in the UK… but when I got back to America I gobbled it all up in a few weeks… I just loved it for the costumes and set design.  So merlantic! (thats merlin and romantic put together) …… as the world should be, right?

    fabulous! i need this for my winter walks through the woods!

  2. You’re very clever Stephanie, I have everything crossed! ❤️

  3. Vera says:

    Merlantic! Love that word and totally pinching it! One of my boys is keeper of a (invisible to most) dragon named toother, he says he needs one in green 🙂

  4. What a lovely pattern! Thanks for an amazing giveaway!

  5. spinnerin (Erin from Faery Knitting) says:

    Oo, it looks toasty and cheery and calming to dragons!

  6. Sandi says:

    I’ve adored your designs forever and have purchased a few, but this hood, this hood is AMAZING! AH. MAZ. ING!! I just adore your design sense, whimsical, embracing nature and the supernatural.

  7. kath says:

    that is stunning! It would look just the part in Glastonbury!

  8. OMG I love this!!! I love all your patterns, they are so unique, creative and fun. I am knitting the Bee Keepers quilt right now! Can’t wait to see what’s coming next 🙂

  9. Lynda says:

    I’m loving seeing the new patterns from your book and I’m patiently waiting for the hardback to come out from Amazon because I believe such wonderness (yes, it’s a word!) should be protected with much care. Can’t wait to get my eyes and hands on these new loverlies (also a word).

  10. Jayne Bartolotti says:

    Would love to make these for my granddaughters. We built them a castle and of course, they need to watch out for dragons!

  11. lunefantasy says:

    Oh my Goddess… I think you are walking for Avalon… So beautiful, so Red, the blood of Mother Earth !!! I’m found in love, now, just right now !

  12. dragonstar01 says:

    Oh, beautiful! I love this!

  13. Effie M. says:

    I keep saying that every pattern is one of my favorites, and this is no exception. I WILL have one of these for myself this winter. It is going to be oh so cold and blustery here this year, and this will keep me nice and toasty, all while feeling properly merlantic myself. ❤

  14. pokitty says:

    I am just MELTING all over this hood! Oh the beauty!

  15. Sally A. says:

    Love this! The bells are the perfect touch. ^^

  16. oh my goodness, how lovely! and she pricked her finger and a single drop of ruby red blood fell onto the snow. Her lips will be as red as blood said the Queen. We have a hill near by that the children named “Dragon Mountain”. There is a cave where people have little fires – of course WE know it is actually where the dragon hides at night for a snooze and it is in fact his snoring breath that has burned the cave wall…

  17. Heather says:

    Dragons beware!!so beautiful love love it!

  18. Kirsten says:

    Wow, it really does get better. This brings to mind all the wonderful Fantasy books I have read! Don’t you just want to slip on your Dragon-Hood and hope on your own Dragon and fly the skies to adventure? I can hardly wait!

  19. Cheryl says:

    I’ve been transported to another time and place. Beautiful!

  20. Jeanne Einhorn says:

    Merlantic – now that’s a great description. I knew I was saving those little bells I bought in Arizona at a bead and gem store for a reason.

  21. I love love LOVE THIS PATTERN !!!!
    I love all your patterns !
    many thanks again to your wonderful world !
    Stéphanie from France

  22. Lotta says:

    Ooh I think this is the best one yet! It’d be perfect for wandering about the grounds of our university… taking a stroll in the forest… looking for dragons… love ♥

  23. mandarine's says:

    Fingers crossed! I love this pattern!

  24. ldpaulson says:

    Merlantic?! I thought that was like an Atlantic Mermaid. Mermaid+ Atlantic = Merlantic … Silly me! Wonderful hood! Which hood would you make for snowshoeing adventures, Stephanie? Bells would come in handy, although flowers and wee horns in the snow… Hmmmm, I’m officially torn!

  25. Deanna says:

    Oh my, how stunning! Every day makes it more difficult for me to decide what to knit first….I am so excited!

  26. Lily Keirby says:

    Just got back from Skipton YARNDALE, first thing to do is open tiny owls blog, wow! Another fest, a dragon hood of wonderous style keep it up it’s just marvellous nothing like this when I was first knitting in the fifties, they are so lucky to have people like you.

  27. TerriSue says:

    I love this pattern. It transports you to another place and time just looking at the pictures. I can’t imagine what it would do to done it.

  28. brianna bernard says:

    I’ve been looking for a pattern just like this and here it is!

  29. Ailbhe says:

    I love the bells! Reminds me of a nursery rhyme my grandad used to tell me:
    Ride a cock-horse to Banbury Cross,
    To see a fine lady upon a white horse;
    With rings on her fingers and bells on her toes,
    She shall have music wherever she goes.
    The idea of having that jingle on cold mornings, as I trudge into college… it brings a little light to the mundane…

  30. Julie Simpson says:

    Medieval echoes and romantic overtones! I ❤ it ! Keeping my toesies crossed for a book x

  31. Pick me . My other hood was stolen by the big bad wolf

  32. Mima says:

    You look so lovely in the pictures and with all the magical fairy knits you think up…you MUST have some fae blood in you!
    Can’t wait to lay my hands on the book. ❤

  33. Jean Saja says:



  34. Oh, please pick me… I do so want a copy of your book!!


    ps can’t wait to find a dragon of my own so my marshmallows will be “toasted to perfection.” brilliant!

  35. I get paid Tuesday and this book will be purchased immediately! I am so excited! I have loved every pattern so far.

  36. Lisa says:

    Another big hoot from me — so far all of the patterns are great! I could see using a very special bead, bell, or found object right at the tippy-top end of the hood = love it!

  37. Jane Kellett says:

    I will knit this for Suzie who sees dragons and fairies everywhere! (even at the bus stop!)

  38. Sharonnz says:

    Oh MY…perfect for an Eragon obsessed 14 year old! LOVE this.

  39. Laurie says:

    How do u do it? Creative mind and a pure heart I bet!

  40. Larah Sifuentes-Winter says:

    My daughter has a dragon who gets a little feisty around me, so I would love a dragon hood to quell the nervousness of my baby’s protector (I think she said his name is George!) Love finding a kindred spirit in you, Stephanie. Perhaps we are ancestrally linked!!

  41. Bunny says:

    Oh, this is so incredibly cute! I love big pixie hoods… Have been slowly working on making myself a scrappy patchwork one out of old sweaters. HAVE to make myself… probably half a dozen of these in different colours!
    Sigh… there were some lovely ladies in my life, sadly now passed away, who would have loved this even more than I do. Faery-girls in human form, living only briefly among us.

  42. Nanita says:

    This give-away party is so much fun!! Another gorgeous pattern, enchanting! ♥

  43. E. B. says:

    oh my goodness this is so adorably delicious (and useful too; I know there are dragons around here; I’ve spotted the signs!)

  44. Robin D says:


  45. sewincoloran says:

  49. pamela says:

    Just returned from the Isle of Mull where this hood would have been just the thing!
    Love all your designs!!
    And congratulations on the new book!

  50. Terry says:

    Just finished watching “Mists of Avalon” from my DVD collection. This would definitely fit right in to that movie — they could have really used the extra magic of the bells. Another fabulous creation!
    Thank-you for sharing your time and talent with us.

  51. oh wow the patterns just keep getting cuter everyday. I am so looking forward to buying your awesome wonderful book.

  64. sonja says:

  73. Alisa Cortez says:

    Every day I think I’ve found “the one” new project … and then I see the next one! Ooh, so hard to choose! I love them ALL, so any choice will be a good one. I think now it’s just a question of HOW MANY can I do by December?!?

  74. Bryony says:

    I will definitely buy the book, everything has been wonderful so far, but I actually *need* to make this hood so much!

  75. Alice says:

    Lovely pattern and book looks amazing, am crossing my needles 😉

  76. samantha says:

  77. Beauuuutiful! I love this!! The name Dragon Watcher’s Hood is perfect for it! Another one to add to my Ravelry line up 🙂

  81. Abby M says:

    This is by far my favorite pattern in the book! With winter around the corner, I need one of these!

  82. Jen says:

    Your patterns are so fantastic. My little guy’s name is Xander Drake (Dragon) and he’s my little firecracker! I would love to win the Dragon Watcher’s hood for those winter days on the playground. A copy of your book would be even better – currently quite difficult to get here in Canada. Thanks so much for the opportunity to win. Best wished on your book!

  83. Kendal says:

    I love that you were “having a major Morgana le Fay” when you made this! Thanks for the giveaway, and for being generally adorable!

  84. This is a perfect pattern! I’ve been looking for a nice knotted hood pattern because I own three cutie raincoats, and none of them have hoods! I’m from the Seattle area, so I definitely need them -_-

  85. Ooh! Every one is my new fave!

  86. xlolliqueenx says:

    I’m working on making this right now! Its so adorable and super easy! I’m only thinking I should have done it in a red color instead of a light purple.

    (P.S. If by some chance this comment has gotten chosen, please give the prize to someone else since I all ready have the book ^,^)

  87. Kristin McFarland says:

    Another beautiful pattern. I love this hood! Of course, it helps that red is my favorite color.

  105. Lorraine Turner says:

    Hi Stephanie, love your dragon hood. Reminds me of watching King Arthur Days and the tv show “Merlin”. It would be something you would see in the series. I wait patiently for your next pattern. They are so original and different than any other designs. Keep on designing. I would love to have your book and am thinking of getting it for my grand-daughter who is very original at nine years old in all that she does.

  106. Aerial says:

    Oh pick me please!!

  107. Merina Matthew says:

    I absolutely Love knitting, but currently don’t have the time as I am a full-time student at College working on a Masters degree. I have been collecting dragons for MANY years and love the idea of a hood to calm them.
    I am a 58 year old single mother who has waited 30 years to go back to school, but I have also been a life-long crafter. My mother started teaching me crafts when I was 5 years old.

  108. Karen Lauterwasser says:

    A wonderful thing to wear on those cold winter days. Just perfect for a fan of all things related to the tales of King Arthur!

  109. Gunilla says:

    Wow… Beautiful!

  110. The only thing better than a hood is a GIANT hood. It’s super-Merlantic and I love it love it love it. I have the exactly perfectly smooshy-soft brown merino wool to spin up for such a thing, too. It’s been waiting patiently for the perfect woodsy project.

  111. Lizzy Reeves says:

    Another utterly delicious pattern! I live next to the forests on the edge of the moors here in the UK and I can see these knits being perfect for the faeries in these parts! Love your stuff! x

  112. Nora Hahn says:

    Sad to have missed a day yesterday while I was in the land of no internets, but looks like today is a good day to be back to commenting! Hood, glorious hood! Fantastically awesome work, as usual. 😀

  143. Lee says:

    Hiya, the pictures are completely gorgeous, they’re really making me look forward to your book. I’m knitting your orchids and fairy lights hat for my best friend at the moment, but maybe it’s time for something for myself next… rainy autumn sundays and pretty knits like this are a perfect match after all.

  144. Vickie says:

    Iam in Dragon Hood love! You just keep on keeping on with these amazing patterns! So want to win this!

  145. Jane S. says:

  147. Katherine says:

    Ooooohhh I have been waiting for your book ! these daily give a ways are so fun (even if I did miss yesterdays…traveling:) Here is a little fun fact ~ kind of have an owl thing, I love hearing them at night and feel so lucky to see them and I wear a tiny tiny owl earriing most days, really 🙂

  148. Petina says:

    I love this hood. It reminds me of a few of my favorite stories. I would always giggle thinking they were wearing hoods instead of hats and that they were separate from their capes. So lovely

  149. Shawna Mac says:

    What a gorgeous hood! I absolutely love it!!

  150. Christina says:

    This is a beautiful pattern! My son loves to pretend with me. He is Harry Potter most of the time and I am Hermione. This knit would inspire some new pretend activities for sure! Thanks for sharing.

  151. ef petr says:

    Wow! That red hood is wonderful. Everything you knit is so fairytale-ish :):)

  152. Henrike says:

    oh I just love it! Beautiful!

  153. Becky says:

    This is such a fabulous hood…. it looks so versatile, and the kind of thing that newcomers to the magical world can ease into wearing! Perhaps one can use it to keep warm while dragon watching 🙂

  154. Luna says:

    Oh my god, that hood is just awesome. I’m trying to learn how to knit and when I’m able to do it right, I’m sure I’ll buy your book or maybe some of the patterns because everything you do is just incredible and so so adorable.
    Also thanks for the chance of winning something from you, and good luck to everyone ^^

  155. Heather says:

    Love love love 🙂

  158. Peg Mawby says:

  159. Amanda Regan says:

    OMG! I absolutely love this hood! I think this is my most favorite pattern ever. Well, besides the Beekeeper’s Quilt 😉 I’ve always wanted to make a hood like this and seeing it in red makes me think of Little Red Riding Hood. This is so adorable and looks fantastic on you ❤

  160. The bells are so whimsical!!!!

  161. Laura says:

    These just keep getting better and better. I think this book will keep me busy for the next year once I get it.
    This would be wonderfully cozy when I’m walking my dragons in the winter. 🙂

  162. Linda says:

    The Dragon Watchers Hood is divine, this is probably the one design I would make and keep for myself no matter how much begging my family does, I may make them some AFTER I have my own:-D keep up the great designs, I have bought both of the charm sets and am patiently waiting for more ♥

  176. kat says:

    I love this dragon scarf how wonderful!!!!!!

  177. Myha says:

    Your pictures are gorgeous! The hood reminds me of Little Red’s but I’m sure hers didn’t come with bells to chase away dragons! 😀

  178. Beth says:

    They are all lovely patterns but I think this one is my favorite! Love it!

  179. Valerie McConchie says:

    This would be so cozy during the winters around here! Adore!

  180. Emely says:

    It’s a blustery day, here in the hundred-acre wood of Oregon. The Dragon Watcher’s Hood would keep my head warm, and its bells would sweetly jingle in our winds (up to 50 mph!). I’m staying inside, sipping hot tea, and perusing your designs on the Internet!

  181. Fiona Dick says:

    Oh my goodness! Where have I been?! You’re giving things away!!! I discovered Tiny Owl Knits through Frankie magazine here is Australia, and after encountering the Mr Fox Stole (and wanting one so terribly bad) I taught myself to knit (thanks to youtube) and had him within a week! I was so proud of myself – despite having to redo his tail – consequently I only wanted to do more, so I’ve also made the hopsalots and a woodland hoodlet for both myself and a friend.
    I can’t believe how amazeballs this hood is and I’ve waiting until the university break (its 3 weeks away) to buy your book – because I’m sure that your patterns will take over my life for the 4 months that my crafty brain doesn’t have to compete with my study brain. Love your work and thank you for sharing it with us. x

  182. Robin54 says:

    Just discovered your giveaways! What a generous woman you are! Thanks for the chance to win your beautiful patterns…

  184. Amelia says:

    Love red when it comes from the heart ! At the moment, I live in a small village where there is a castle a lake and a wood of course, in the house of my good friends : they used to play music at night by the fireplace and I like to join them with my needles ! I would be so pleased to receive your book and patterns as an opportunity to make some grateful and warmy gifts thanking them for their help ! I’m really inspired by what you’re doing !

  185. Kris C says:

    Oh, I LOVE this pattern! Looks so warm and cozy. Crossing fingers and toes… 🙂

  186. Laura says:

    I.love.this.hood…. and while it would be great to win it, I must have it ,regardless. And it must be in red. And I must grow my hair out to long,billowing tresses before I wear it!

  187. Another wonderful pattern! I’m really enjoying the reveal party and can’t decide which pattern I’d like to do first. -Sarah

  188. Scott says:

    I can’t get over how brilliant your works are. It’s difficult to find projects that manage to combine practicality with a sense of wonder but your works are simply inspirational. Kudos to you for finding the magic in your hands and I look forward to seeing what other charming jewels you invent.

  189. Jen k says:

  191. Kathryn buttke says:

    I’d hate to be unprepared in the event of a feisty dragon encounter! Lovely!

  192. This thing looks as big as I am! I would definitely feel like a pixie in this fantabulous hoodie! Here’s crossing all of my fingers, all of my toes, and twitching my witchy nose!

  193. Liz Knowles says:

  200. Jessica says:

    I am on vacation in portugal and decided to finally check my email and was delighted to see a newsletter from the Tiny Owl. Oh my goddess the moonbeam duster!!! so beautiful, fun and dance-inspiring. I am even more delighted to see that you are publishing your first collection. I have made the deer with antlers and everyone is always trying to steal it. Obviously the moonbeam duster is a must-knit as well as the moonkoosa boots and hopsalots, as we just celebrated the autumn equinox. Good luck with all your endeavors and thank you for sharing your talent with us.

  201. inoxia says:

  210. Stephanie says:

    I loooooove this! I’ll probably make a less drastic version for work, since I’ll be working outside in the freezing cold.

  211. Willow says:

    I love the long tassels! I made myself the Rapunzel hat designed by you in bright red and knitted in it loooong i-cords that I braided 🙂 They are over a meter long each and very impractical but I love love love them ♥ This pattern and the long tassels remind me of it. If I win I’ll have a hard time trying to decide wich one to wear outside every day, the Rapunzel hat or the hood 😀

  212. Maggie says:

    I love this! Not only would I make one for myself but I believe this is something my teenage daughter would wear too. Too cute!

  213. Pam says:

  214. rose helmbright says:

  218. Cindy says:

    I would love to say that this is my favorite design of yours – but they are all my favorite!!

  219. Aw your patterns are just my fave. I adore this hood, I can must imagine me and my adventure puppy exploring his favourite woods wearing one of these…maybe I should make a dog sized one too!

  220. Heather says:

    Gorgeous! And the first head covering I have ever seen that will actually contain my hair and not look frumpy.

  221. Joan says:

    I have been favourite-ing your patterns on Ravelry since I started there a few years ago. You have such a great imagination I always look forward to see what you do. 🙂

  225. violicious says:

    Gah! This hood is awesome. And I would love to knit it in that lovely red!

  226. Lisa Griffith says:

    Hello Lady Owl! I want to tell you it has been a tough time for me. I have been working long hours at a stressful job. The office I work at is at the end of a very long hallway (totally scary dream style). I get in very early, before anyone else. Every morning when I walk down that hallway, I imagine myself walking through a forest, wearing layers of long heavy cotton, boots, and knits, with my hair loose and flowing, surrounded by quiet, beautiful colors and creatures – I feel truly myself in my fantasy. I love your designs, and want to be cozy and protected in a Dragon Watcher’s Hood!
    P.S. Your performance of Teardrop is divine. One of my favorite songs – I danced a tango to it once, and it was magical.
    Happy Evening!

  227. Oloriel says:

    Ohhhh my goodness I must have this pattern!

  228. Sa says:

    Love your patterns. Just ordered your book but it says it will take 4-6 weeks! I do love that hood though…might be this year’s Christmas gift. 🙂

  229. Jessica says:

    Beautiful! What a gorgeous, fun, whimsical hood!

  230. Ro Swan says:

    AWESOME!!! I have been a drocophile (dragon lover) all my life and have been knitting 65-plus years.. Your designs are soooo much fun. One of my grand-daughters is autistic and stories about dragons always seem to reach her more than any others. I will be making her a dragon watcher’s hood for Christmas. In purple of course, since that’s her favorite color, and with many, many more bells because bells make her laugh.

  231. Jessica says:

    By the way, the teenaged daughter Lorrie mentioned is mine, and she would absolutely love this – she told me herself. 🙂

It is really cool, that you have this give away, even if the chances to win anything are small with all the peaple who love your designs.

  342. It’s one wonderful pattern after another. How do you do it Stephanie. :O Can’t wait to see tomorrow’s.

  343. Yael says:

    Wow !! I just discovered you via facebook and you’re stunning ! I’d looooove to knit a red fairy hood like this one ❤

  344. Susan Snow says:

    That hood is W- I – L – D!!!!! Love it!

  345. Susan Hawkins says:

    Wow love your patterns,this is so beautiful!

  346. Well this isjust the cutest. I need this. So I can jingle jangle on down the street. I love a good jangle bell. Yes…jangle.

  347. El says:

    Love all your stuff. : ) Thanks for the nice contest. : ) I wish I had known sooner this was happening. : D Have a lovely Monday. : )

  348. isaida says:

    I LOVE this hood! So cute.

  349. Mildred says:

    I love the hood. I say that it has magic… I see myself as little Red Riding hood putting on the magic Dragon Hood and being transported to the land of dragons! The bells jingles to alert them that I have arrived for my visit! (:0) I hope I win!!

  350. Kelly B. says:

    Squee!! Loving it more and more!

  351. Casey says:

    Glad you have something to keep you safe from dragons!!

  352. Lise says:

    ❤ this hooooooddddddd!

  353. Knittylizard says:

    That’s it! Everything else on my to knit list just got bumped. I am making this fabulous hood next.

  354. Frances says:

    I have been looking at the “magical” hoods on ravelry and was thinking about knitting one. I am usually a hat person but the red riding hood is so gorgeous and would make a dramatic statement when worn. Will you be releasing an ebook too?

  355. Naomi says:

    I think I have managed to convert some more people to give knitting a go by showing the guys at work your website. Safe to say not much work done the last couple of days as we try and choose a favourite. We would love a book to share between us.

  356. Sarah says:

    How stunning! Love it. 🙂

  357. Oh wow, I’m so glad I found your blog via woodland knitter. I should so be working right now but i am just too distracted by your gorgeous creations. I absolutely love the snake-a-licious top which I know i would be holding my breath across every row (as cabling has that effect on me). but I would love to knit it all the same. But the catching butterflies gloves are definitely me and I need to be wearing those this winter!
    i think I’d be knitting everything in this book as I know my friend Leah would love the fairy castles and gnome homes too. If i can throw a sicky till christmas that would be all my presents sorted!

  358. Katie says:

    !!!!! My favorite so far. LOVE your designs 🙂

  359. Eleanor Lee says:

    Absolutely love every one of these designs. I found your beautiful book in my local bookstore yesterday and just had to buy it 🙂 If I win I will gift to my daughter and spread the love . x

  360. Elli Seltzer says:

    I love this hood! Not only is it great for dragon watchers, but it reminds me of Little Red Riding Hood. No doubt it would come in handy if one ever found one’s self all alone in a wood and confronted with a mysterious wolf.

  361. Angie says:

    What a perfect pattern for fall.

  362. So cute! I’ve already ordered my copy of the book 🙂 But I would love to give a copy to a friend who I’m sure would love it too!

  363. Jenny says:

    I love this! Little Red Riding Hood all grown up 🙂

  364. Jenny says:

    I love this! Little Red Riding Hood all grown up 🙂

  365. Sharmeen says:

    This would be amazing to have as part of a Halloween costume.

  366. Aimee Richardson says:

  367. Hey Stephanie – truly wonderful book… and patterns as always – do you want to do a swapsee – my bewitching frogs ‘n’ toads pattern (http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/frogs-n-toads) for one of your charms pattern?
    Claire x

  368. This one is delicious and makes me want to go out and attach bells to everything I own:-)

  369. Glenys says:

    This is so fun! I really like this hood.

  370. Krista says:

    I can’t wait to get my little paws on a copy of your book! Sneak peeks of your beautiful patterns leave me feeling more and more inspired each day. Thank you for sharing your inner world through your knitting needles!

  371. Margay says:

    That is pretty cool! Love it.

  372. JuneRainInAutumen says:

    Dear Stephanie.
    I love your patterns! Since I started last year to Knit again and I found you on raverley, I even sit in class and Knit.
    Funnily enough it does not bother anyone. Everyone is so fascinated by the lovely little things that they forgot to exhort me;)
    I would appreciate both a pattern or a book!
    Since last year my family only wears bunny slippers. 😀

    Thank you so much for your wonderful and fancy ideas
    Love June

  373. Meaghan says:

    Love this hood!!! So whimsical! Hope I win!

  374. Cristina says:

    That is so beautiful!! I always picture myself wearing a cape and hood in the winter, I wonder why they don´t make them anymore.

  375. Lily says:

    I can’t wait to knit this! It will totally set the mood when I’m searching for adventures and magical creatures in the forrest ! 😀

  376. Danielle Shewbridge says:

    This hood is great! Thanks again for running this contest 🙂

  377. Fabienne B. says:

    Merlantic, what a lovely word !!
    I was just looking some knitting that Morganna could have worn…this pattern is really awsome.
    I’m new to your designs ( well I’m not from Mars I have seen hexipuff from your beequilter ) and I now know what to ask to Santa :your book
    Good luck everybody,
    And thanks tinyowl for the patterns and the game !!

  378. Pepper says:

    I have such a weakness for hoods and this one is absolutely perfect! I’ve already put your book on my Christmas wish list, assuming I don’t win it first. Fingers are crossed.

  379. Jody Hatch says:

    Little red riding hood is so jealous! The patterns just get better, Thanks for all the fun!

  380. Max says:

    I love this hood! You make the best stuff! I’m trying to knit like you, but I can’t keep up.

  381. Ashley P. says:


  382. Sarah says:

    I am definitely going to have to save up and buy your book! And the Dragon Watcher’s Hood is so pretty! I know some awesome friends who would love that! Keep on crafting, love!

  383. Marilyn says:

    Love this headcovering…you are so creative…God bless you

  384. Tricia says:

    The Dragon Watcher’s Hood looks fantastic! I have 2 nephews who are always on the look out for dragons as well so I would like to knit us 3 hoods to be dragon watchers together!

  385. Kay says:

    I heart this!!!! And the bells are a great touch!!

  386. emilie94410 says:

    Whouahou!!!! So beautiful! 🙂

  387. Alicia says:

    This!! This is everything! I’m hesitant to say that only because I’m sure you have so many more beautiful patterns to come.

  388. cilly88 says:

    Cool, it looks like the hood Princess Aurora wears in Sleeping Beauty!

  389. Paola Paro says:

    I would love to be a Red Riding Hood like you in this picture 🙂
    It’s lovely!

  390. Katie says:

    What a treat to discover your patterns!

  391. PookahKnits says:

    Gorgeous hood and gorgeous pictures!

  392. Maureen Robertson says:

    This shall be my Dragon loving Granddaughters Christmas gift for sure ! STUN-ING !!!!!

  393. Emily says:

    What a beautiful hood! The bells are a great touch

  394. Heather H. says:

    Very cute hood! Although all of your patterns have been wonderful. I want to make every single one. 🙂 I think I will have to bump Merlin up to the top of my Netflix queue now, too!

  395. jocelyn says:

    Amazing!! The magical rivers of creativity flow so beautifully through you! Your talents shared with us are truly sweet gifts! I am always uplifted and inspired after visiting your blog, seeing new patterns there, and especially watching one of your videos! Being able to relax a dragon whilst wearing the Dragon Watcher’s Hood –knitted up from your special pattern, would be incredibly fantastic!!:) Thanks for being here!!

  396. Miss_Marie says:

    Ooo this hood is so dramatic! I also love the addition of the bells b/c it would remind me that I’m wearing something fabulous- which would be extra true with this one! Also, the drape and shape are perfect for woodsy photos!

  397. Joy Hannaford says:

    This hood is amazing! How did you know we are doing a topic on dragons in school at the moment. I need this as a genuine artefact for added atmosphere!

  398. Rachael says:

    I love your patterns. I want to make them all!

  399. Barbara says:

    Okay really, anything that will make me look like little red riding hood is a bonus! Love the texture and the colour!

  401. Sarah says:

    My only regret when I see your gorgeous patterns is the dreaded Slooooooooooowness of my knitting. I need a time warp machine so I could have more hours in my day to knit. The other problem is how to choose? They are all so cool. My Miss 7 would keel over if she had a Parsel tongue hat and my Miss 5 would be preening her whiskers in the kitten hat. I know they would walk around sandwiched together like a 2 headed beast in the woods sharing this dragon watchers hood. Keep up the awesome knitting – it is inspiring 🙂

Give a hoot here. I love to hear from you!
