Positivity Spiral Cowl crochet pattern - download or hard copy


This one-skein, crocheted cowl pattern has a simple 16 stitch and 8 round repeat which makes it easy to memorize and creates a simple and elegant piece.

It uses filet crochet to create lace holes that work up in a spiral around the cowl, alongside Herringbone Trebles that create a flat, drapey fabric.

The pattern gives hook sizes, gauge information estimated circumference and depth of finished object over seven yarn weights (heavily laceweight, 4ply/fingering, heavy 4 ply/fingering, sportweight, DK, aran/worsted, chunky/bulky).

I now operate a ‘pay what you can’ scale for my electronic/downloadable single patterns.  I usually charge £5 for these patterns and to encourage access for all crafters, these are now available on a scale of £3 - £7 and you chose what you can afford within that scale. 

Please note that this doesn’t apply to my hard copy patterns, which remain priced at £5 and come with an automatic digital download.

Postage and Packaging

You can read all about P&P here.

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
