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~

For The Love of Technology

I know, I know. I launch a new website for my kniting designs, make one blog post and then nothing. I think I have mentioned before that I work outside the home as an IT Project Manager, which takes up some of my time. Being mommy takes up the rest. I have set my goal of one blog post to my site a week. So far I have not met thar goal. 

I was all geared up this weekend to write a post and finish typing up the pattern for a new design. I opened my laptop to find that at somepoint in the last three weeks my lcd screen was destroyed making my laptop unusable! Lots of anger and frustration occurred over the weekend. 

Fortunately, being in the IT field, I know it can be fixed. I found a replacement lcd screen, I just have to order it. The installation is the easy part. Waiting, not so much. To pass that time I’ve set up my ipad to do blog posts and content editing. 

Oh yeah, I’ve also been knitting! I have two new designs that I am in the process of knitting. One is a 1920’s inspired cardigan and the other is a pair of fingerless mitts to match the cowl pattern I am typing up. I can’t share photos of those at this time. But I can share photos of my Find Your Fade Shawl that I am currently knitting. Enjoy!

The yarn for this project is:

Madelinetosh sock in Havana, Glass Bottom Boat, and Nassua Blue.

Manos Del Uruguay Alegria Sock in Tahiti.

Malabrigo Sock in Aniversario.
