I’m really excited to bring this brand new, shiny update to what is my MOST popular design. I self-published Through the Woods way back in January of 2010. It was only my 8th knitting pattern design. (I now have 67 knit designs.) It eventually grew to become my highest grossing pattern, followed very closely by The Fisherman’s Wife Neckwarmer. So, you can imagine the evolution involved in the design as I, as a Knitter AND as a Designer sharpened my skills and my knowledge.
I’ve decided to take all of the tools, tricks, skills AND knowledge that I’ve accumulated along the way and pack it into a NEW revised version of the pattern.
If you’ve worked this pattern before and you often wondered if the process could be fine-tuned a bit or even sped up (for that Gift Giving Rush!), I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised by this new version.
But if you’re new to this design and have not yet purchased the pattern, I’d love to see what you think! This new version is chalk-full of step-by-step photos to help guide you along the construction of the hood. I’ve also created TWO helpful photo tutorials that are available HERE on my website, that you’ll have special access to once you’ve purchased the pattern.
I want this pattern (as with ALL of my designs) to be a learning experience for you. I just love teaching through the art of pattern writing. And knowing that someone may have learned a new technique or just another way to do a particular thing, makes my heart smile.
For this pattern update launch, I’ll be offering a special Promo on the pattern itself. But it will only be available on Ravelry. (Sorry, this does not mean a refund or discount on previous purchases.) For those of you who have not yet bought the pattern or would like to buy it for a friend, I’m giving you a special discount code that will give you HALF off the full pattern price. So, it will be just $2, instead of $4.) This Promo Price will expire at the end of the month. (November 30th, 2015) Use discount code: update
Purchase the “Through the Woods” pattern:
Of course, if you already own the pattern, you’ll have already been emailed an update of the pattern through the site where you purchased it. Be it Craftsy, Ravelry or Knit Picks. If you have not received an update but you do have a receipt that you can reference, please feel free to email me directly and I’ll make sure you receive the new version. 🙂
Now, naturally this leads me to the part that I’m sure many of you look forward to…
