New For Sale Pattern: Cumberland

You all may remember a while back when we changed the put-up of Canopy Worsted from a 50 gram skein to a 100 gram skein. We're loving the response to the new-put up, so we're doing an early release of a pattern {originally slated for Spring 2014} that features just one skein of Canopy Worsted, the Cumberland Cowl.

Inspired by traditional ganseys, the Cumberland Cowl features a beautiful zig zag pattern and purl ridge stripes.
