Cabled Cowl - 7 Patterns in One! - For Sale

 
As a Cowl
 If you have never made a cowl, then it's time to jump on the bandwagon and try one of
As a Hood over the head
these neck warmers that will keep you all warm and snuggly during the cold winter months. Now's the time to be thinking about Christmas gifts. I can just hear several of you saying, "Let's get Thanksgiving over with first!", but if you're like me, you like to get started as soon as the weather turns cold.

As a Cape  
      According to Vashti Braha, fellow designer and friend, "There are 100's of Knit Cowl patterns out there, but not nearly as many for crochet cowls."

Since becoming aware of this fact back in Oct. 2010, she quickly decided to start the "New Crochet Cowls Scarves" blog, which has perked much interest in the crochet world. It's a place where professional designers can post about this trend while they're still hot. Please go here to read more about my "Versatile Cabled Cowl" on the new Cowl blog. It's getting a lot of attention already! You'll find lots of other cowls there too.

The Cowl blog was nominated in the Crochet Liberation Front's Flamie Awards, as "The Best Crochet Blog" 

As a Skirt

I meant to put my cowl up for sale on my blog last winter but  got sidetracked! I'm so, so sorry to those of you who have asked about my pattern and have waited patiently. I feel terrible about that but I lost my handwritten pattern and looked for month so I could put it up for sale. I'm happy to say I found the pattern and am posting ir for sale today. 

Cowl around Neck
There are several ways to wear this stunning cowl.You're buying 1 pattern, but I show you how to wear it as other pieces such as a basic cowl around the neck, a hooded cowl over the head,

Hood
capelet around the shoulders, a hip hugger skirt, a tube top to wear under a jacket, a pillow and a tote bag from the same exact pattern! You're getting 7 patterns for the price of one!
As a Tube Top

Maybe you can even think of other ideas, and if you do, I'd love for you to share that with me.

I want to say thanks to pretty Romanian beauty, Mihaela Vaduva, my daughter's sister in law,  for being willing to model for me.
As a Pillow
As a Tote Bag
 Actually Mihaela is also my son's sister in law. Strange? Not really, after I explain it. My daughter, Jamie Hall, married Mihael's brother, Virgil 13 yrs ago, and then 3 yrs later, my son Brian Hall, married their sister, Anca Vaduva. Their parents and sister, Ligia, are finally in the states now! To purchase this pattern, please see details below.

  1. Lovely! Will this also be available as a Ravelry download or only through your blog?

  2. Hi Marie. I am going to work on starting up a Ravelry store so I can have the cowl pattern (and others) there as a download. I'll try to do that soon.

  3. Ok, thanks Mary Jane! If it is going to be on Ravelry soon, I'll wait until then to download it so I can store it in my Rav library.

  4. Hi Mary Jane. I've been making cowls lately and pretty simple ones but love them and love crocheting them. I even knitted one this week. I knit and crochet, but my favorite is crocheting and I would love to make this one. I wondered if you could tell me the level of crocheting for this pattern. Is it really difficult to make the cables? I'm really not a pattern fan, so you know that means I'm either making up my own or crocheting madly away making hats :). Anyway, before I invest in this, I wanted to know what you think. I can follow the stitches. I do the rib stitches and the back and forward post stitches, etc. Thanks for all your beautiful work and sharing. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.

  5. Vivi,

    I am SO sorry I'm just now replying to your question! I have been sick off & on for about 6 weeks and have lots of email to catch up on!
    To answer your question, I don't think this pattern is difficult, but you just have to pay more attention to your stitches. People tell me all the time that I write very clear instructions & that my patterns are easy to understand. If you do get this pattern, is there someone you know who can show you if you don't understand something?
    When I was a beginner many yrs ago, i met with a group of ladies who had a crochet meeting once a month & they always helped me to understand if I didn't know how to do something or read the pattern.

    If you'd like, you can give me your email address privately and I'll send you a portion of the pattern so you can see if its something you can do & understand. My email address is maryjanehall@gmail.com.

    Please let me know if you got this reply!

  9. Wow Katherine, I'm so glad I decided to check my spam folder. This message from you did not come to my regular email. I was not aware you didn't receive the pattern. As soon as I got the notification from Pay Pal saying you paid, I sent you the pdf pattern by email & asked you to let me know if you got it. I think I may know what the problem is. I was away from home & tried to forward the attachment to you I had sent to someone else who ordered it. I sent it from my smartphone. So you never got it? I'm so sorry. I've really been having problems with my email & my editor & other people have not gotten important emails from me. I'm supposed to be getting a new computer next week & hope that will clear up this problem. I'll get on my regular computer right now & send you the pattern directly from my documents & not from a forwarded email this time. please let me know as soon as you get it, ok?

  20. I have been having trouble with my email lately and have no idea what the problem is. After Brianna emailed me yesterday and said she hasn't gotten her pattern, I just knew I had sent it with an email back to her. So I looked around and found my email to her with the pattern in my drafts folder! It's been happening with my phone and now on my tablet. I even wrote my son a long email today and it's not in my sent or drafts folder. I also wrote my daughter yesterday and she never got it and it's no where to be found! Wish I knew what to do. I don't think I have a problem receiving emails. It's just that they don't all send. Some do though!

  22. I have not received my pattern after paying through paypal. I expected to receive it immediately as I would on ravelry. When should I expect it to arrive? I purchased the pattern for a crochet class for tomorrow so need to know quickly.
