Monthly Discounted Pattern: Lagertha Cowl

I’m going to be honest, I want people to knit my designs. I’m pretty sure that is one of the goals of all knit designers. Another honest moment, I started this pattern design journey but then I got away from the typing the patterns, taking the photos, and publishing the patterns. Sometimes life gets crazy and you have to let some things slide.

However, I am working my way back into it. I have three designs that I am working on typing up and editing. In the meantime I have a goal/desire to encourage more knitters to knit my patterns. I did some brainstorming and came up with the idea of offering one of my published patterns each month at a discounted price.

This offer starts today. For the entire month of April 2019, I am offering my Lagertha Cowl pattern 40% off.

You do not need a code to get the discount. All you have to do is add the pattern to your cart to get the discount. The promotion will run from April 1st through the 30th.

I’m very proud of this particular design and I wear it often in the fall and winter. The pattern features lace and garter sections which knit up quiet squishy and cozy.

For the sample I used Malabrigo sock yarn in complementary colorways. The lace sections are knit in Botichelli Red and the garter sections are knit in Eggplant. I absolutely love how this turned out!

I really hope you will check this pattern out and give it a knit! If you have any questions or comments please feel free to reach out to me on Ravelry (JessieLynn) or via email (jessknitsdesigns@gmail.com). I’d love to hear from you.

Tag me in your photos on instagram (@jess_knits) so I can see your beautiful Lagertha cowls!

~Happy Knitting~

Lagertha Cowl Pattern Published

I finally published a new pattern to my Jess Knits Ravelry shop. Lagertha is a nice a squishy cowl pattern knit in the round with sections of lace and garter stitch. I’m so very pleased with the way this pattern turned out. It’s also the first pattern using my new pattern template with my new logo on it. I’m super excited to share it with you!

I used 2 skeins of Malabrigo sock yarn. Yes, I am a Malabrigo junkie! Their yarn is so soft to knit with and really comes alive when you soak it for blocking. Wet Malabrigo is as soft as butter! I love it! I used the Eggplant color for the garter stripes and Botichelli Red for the lace. I really think those two colors complemented each other really well. Kind of rustic. 

This was a summer time knit, so I’ll have to get some pictures of me wearing it this fall. I really hope those who choose to purchase this pattern enjoy knitting it. As always comments and questions can be emailed to my jessknitsdesigns@gmail.com email address. 

Happy Knitting!

The new designer in town

I decided it was time to create a website and blog to go along with my pattern design hobby. Even though my passion for knitting is a lifestyle, I still classify it as a hobby at this time because I work outside the home as an IT Project Manager. My goal for this site is to chronicle my journey into pattern design with the blog and share my designs. At this time I have 4 patterns available in my pattern shop on Ravelry. I have several designs in the works at this time and one design that just needs to have the pattern typed up and test knitted. I’m very excited to be on this journey and look forward to sharing my designs with everyone.
