Off the Needles: Shannon

My friend Shannon leftover Lion Brand Thick & Quick from her and  Gap-tastic Cowl
and was having trouble finding another cowl pattern that she liked. I thought it would be fun to design something for her leftovers, the funny thing is, she had the same idea! Check out her Carefree Cowl Tutorial

And here is what I designed for her... 

This was the original because I had the yarn in my stash, 
but I knew I wanted a lighter colour to show off the cables.
Shannon loves cables. 


For full details on this design visit the Pattern Page.


  1. It's beautiful! Almost like a chain link pattern. I definitely prefer the lighter version.

  2. I love both versions!! What a great cowl Jane! :) I'm drawn to the original, but the lighter version definitely makes me eyes linger on those cables.

    I also love your photos, that second one shows off the tweedy yumminess of the yarn so well! What's your secret?

  3. i love love this cowl!!!! gotta go make it. :)

  4. Oh man.....I love this so much!!! I'm so thrilled...beyond thrilled to have a Jane Richmond pattern named after me!!!!! Wowsa! Off to get yarn to make one today!

  5. Wow, it's absolutely gorgeous!! Love how big and squishy it looks.
