I'm A Ravelry Designer - It's Offical!
Posted on September 08 2016
How posh does that sound! What is actually means is that I've posted a free pattern for my Mustard Cable Neck-Warmer on there!
I like making up my own patterns for things and people are always asking me for the patterns for the things I have for sale in the shop. Now, instead of having to apologise and say I don't have one I can point them to Ravelry - as long as it's just the neck-warmer for the moment!
I will make a point of writing things down now and add them on. It's probably a good discipline and will definitely save me swearing at myself the following year when I want to make something again and have to work it all out again!
Are you on Ravelry? Shall we become friends? That would be nice xx
Here's the pattern, in case you aren't a member. Also here as a pdf.

To make the button loops I crocheted a chain the length I needed for the buttons I wanted to use. You could also use ribbon or a plaited length of the yarn you used.
