A premium Knitting Pattern
There is a long history of telling stories through our art. Through painting on cave walls, mosaics and stained glass in our places of worship, quilt making, and other forms we have been recounting our traditions and histories. I feel so special that I can share the traditions and histories of my family through the medium and knit and crochet.
Christianity is such and important part of my life it's a joy to be able to share a piece of that with you through the Bethlehem Cowl. This cowl takes you through the story of Jesus' birth told by Luke. You can find the story for yourself in Luke chapter 2. The story starts with Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem. Then Jesus is born in the stable. The final scene is of the shepherds right before the angels visit them giving glory to God.
For the neutral yarn color I used Knit Picks Stroll yarn and for the red and brown tone yarn I splurged and used some yarn from one of my favorite dyers; Mandy Pole from Spun Ware Over the Rainbow. This cowl is truly something special that you can make and want to keep it forever.
And for those of you asking, "where are the free patterns?" I know it was time for a free pattern but I wanted to get this pattern out before the holiday rush and the free knitting pattern for November is coming soon.

Purchase the pattern!This premium pattern comes with all the instructions and charts needed to make this stunning cowl. I have decided to make all of my stranded knitting patterns paid patterns for a number of reasons. some of those include: It helps offset the cost of the software used to make the charts. A lot more time is spent on coming up with the designs and by having it a paid pattern it is harder for people to just copy and paste my hard work and treat it as their own.
Thank you in your support of my Ravelry Pattern Store Where this pattern is for sale for $3.00 (USD).
