I've had a strange year so far, and to be honest, completely forgot I signed up for this stashdown, but I had so much fun being a part of this last year - when I shared my Whimsical Sashay Cowl - so when I got a reminder email recently, I got to town on my design. To find out more about The Holiday Stashdown 2016 and get a complete schedule of pattern releases, check out my Holiday Stashdown CAL Announcement. Materials: - Less than 106 yards of Super Bulky Yarn - I used less than one skein of Lion Brand's Wool Ease Thick n Quick in the Barley colorway - M13/9mm Crochet Hook - Tapestry Needle for Sewing and Weaving in Ends Material Notes: I was given this yarn as a gift. It had been sitting in my car waiting to be used when I thought about this cowl. Dig through your stash and find some super bulky yarn you have been waiting to use, or wanting to destash. I think Bernat's Blanket Yarn would work, two strands of worsted weight yarn held together or even three strands of lightweight yarn held together - get creative! Time Spent: I had my cowl ready to wear in about an hour. This PDF contains 3 pages and 1 photo. Pattern is available for free on my blog, but there isn't a printer friendly option without this $2.00 fee to compensate for the loss of views when you no longer need to return to the blog.

I began with needlepoint on plastic canvas (thank you Aunt Arlys!) about six years ago, making anything I could get my hands on or brain to think up, from masks for school plays to picture frames and small trinkets but recently (less than a year ago), I’ve gotten into jewelry making and working on my crocheting/sewing/etc. I currently craft full time. This is my true passion, and I am very grateful for your business, support and feedback! I chose the name Eye Love Knots in honor of the Burckhalter/Lindhorn family (my very close cousins). Our family has been affected by Retinoblastoma, a cancer of one or both eyes which occurs in young children. There are approximately 350 new diagnosed cases per year in the US and affect about one in every 15,000 births. Although children may be born with retinoblastoma, it is rarely diagnosed at birth. As a rapidly growing cancer, studies of the bones, bone marrow and spinal fluid are also performed upon discovery. If the tumor is contained within the eye, more than 95% of patients can be cured. For those children with tumors in both eyes, close to 70-80% of the eyes can be saved, although many of them need radiation therapy, or possibly even chemotherapy. Fifteen percent of every purchase made from me will be donated to aid in the medical advances and new discoveries on the fight against Retinoblastoma, blindness and other eye diseases. Donations go to the National Retinoblastoma Research and Support Foundation headed by Dr. Timothy Murray If you aren’t in need of any of my handmade treasures but would like to make a donation today, please email me so I can set this up for you.
