grab your MKAL bonus pattern…

MKAL bonus pattern: The Caladenia Cowl is free for those who have purchased the Caladenia Shawl MKAL pattern through April 30, 2021. Use this handy Ravelry link to grab the Cowl (and the shawl if you haven’t already). Purchase through Payhip here to receive both the Cowl and Shawl patterns.

Find the Caladenia Shawl and MKAL details here.

Choose between two options for the Caladenia Cowl; both feature elements of the Caladenia Shawl design with Cowl A also incorporating a stranded colour-work motif. Fun to knit and lovely to wear, these cowls have been created as a bonus pattern for Caladenia Shawl MKAL participants. The full Caladenia Cowl pattern will be updated with along with the final Caladenia Shawl clue on April 30, 2021.

IMPORTANT You will NOT receive the full pattern until April 30, when the final MKAL clue is released. You will receive a placeholder PDF initially.

My inspiration for this design is the gorgeous Australian Caladenia also known as the Spider Orchid, of which there are many beautiful variations.
