Free Pattern With Purchase This Weekend Only! October 09, 2015 20:11

Happy weekend everyone!  I'm writing to tell you about the special for this weekend - purchase any skein of my Triple Luxury DK, and receive a copy of the Celeste Cowl pattern free.  You only need one skein of this heavenly soft yarn to complete the cowl.  Triple Luxury is a delicious, creamy smooth blend of Baby Alpaca, Merino Wool and Silk.

You do not need to add the pattern as a separate item to your cart; just purchase the yarn and a download link will be sent to you automatically.  You can also use the code FALL15 at checkout for 15% off your order!

  You can check out all of the colors currently available in my Triple Luxury here, and read on for more info on the Celeste Cowl:
