Positivity Spiral crochet pattern 4 ply - digital
I now operate a ‘pay what you can’ scale for my electronic/downloadable single patterns. I usually charge £4 for these patterns and to encourage access for all crafters, these are now available on a scale of £2 - £6 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 £4 and come with an automatic digital download.
The crocheted cowl pattern has a simple 16 stitch and 8 round repeat which makes it easy to memorise 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.
If you make this cowl please do upload your WIP and FO on Ravelry. It would be great to see it on Instagram too - #PositivitySpiral #FayDHDesigns @faydhdesigns

Product materials, sourcing and PoM Rating
This product was originated by me at Fay Dashper-Hughes Designs. I work with a local printer and they help me to source recycled paper for my patterns. This pattern is printed on paper that is manufactured using wind power,100% recycled post-consumer fibre and carbon neutral.
Postage and Packaging
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.
