    1. Thank you! I'm trying to make things more user-friendly... there's no use posting a bunch of patterns if they're super difficult to find, right? :)

  2. Your patterns are so interesting. Do you have a cowl pattern with some seed stitch suitable for Lopi yarn? Do you ever twist the cowl for an Infinity style?
    I can't imagine how you find the time to knit so many things with little children :)

    1. Hi Sue! I haven't done any of the infinity style yet (although I have plans for one, so keep an eye out!). And as far as seed stitch is concerned, my seediest pattern is probably the notched front cowl (http://www.ballstothewallsknits.com/2014/09/notched-front-cowl.html). That might be really nice in the Lopi, too.... :)

  3. Hi Gretchen,

    I'm trying to follow your pattern for the cowl, but I'm a beginner knitter. How do I go back to the first row? Do I use a different needle? Can you please help me?

  4. Oops, sorry…I've typed it several time because my comment kept on being eaten. I wasn't very clear. I managed to finish the first four rows of purling. I'm confused on how to get back to the first row using the second color. Can you help me, please? Thank you.

    1. Hi Cici!

      I can sure try! Can you tell me which pattern you're working on?

  5. I think your patterns are WONDERFUL!!! Other than the stitch markers do you mark up your pattern to remember where you paused? I'm not a sophisticated knitter and can get lost...
    Thank you!

    1. Hi there!

      I'm glad to hear you like my patterns. :) And, for the most part, I choose to design stuff where I don't get lost, so I don't do too much marking. However, I know that lifelines work wonders for many knitters! Is that a technique you've tried?

  6. thank you for the wonderful patterns! I am guilty of buying one skeen of luxury yarn that I fall in love with then have to hunt for a pattern for it, cowls are my usual choice. Thanks!

  7. Hi Gretchen… Just checking back to see what beautiful things you've made while I've been busy, unfortunately not knitting! Lol I just again want to tell you how beautiful your things are and you are so gracious to share so many beautiful things. You can tell a lot about a person by their kindness and generosity....when I get back to my needles… This is the first place I'm coming! Your little boys are indeed lucky to have such a Great person for a mom and society is indeed lucky that you are raising them. Children learn what they see… I expect they will also be generous and kind spirited.

    1. No, I don't think so! If there's one in particular that you're looking to match, though, I might be able to help you with a pattern in the comments! :)
