Item details

The beauty of a cowl, whether it is short or long, is that it is, in essence, one never-ending loop. With a scarf you are limited by having two ends that must be pulled up or held together in some manner, but the cowl is able to twist and turn into a scarf, a hood, or even a shrug with just the slightest movement of fabric. In this variation on the Mini Mania Scarf, I’ve thrown out the ends and created an epic, endless loop in a manic color palette all your friends will want.

The best part about this cowl is you can knit it with all those little bits of leftover yarn that have been multiplying like rabbits in the corners of your stash. Make it unique by knitting it big or little, fat or skinny, in a loop or even twisted as a moebius!

This pattern uses the eponymous fabric stitch, or linen stitch, so named because it looks similar to a woven linen fabric. The stitch uses simple slipped stitches to create a dramatic finished project and is knit lengthwise to most accurately replicate the style of a woven garment.

You may instantly download a .pdf version of this free pattern by clicking the link below, or to have a high-quality, full-page printed cardstock version shipped to you, simply add this listing to your cart. Because Etsy does not allow free listings, the .20 cent listing price is part of the total shipping cost, which has been reduced to reflect the difference. This item ships separately in a hard, rigid envelope to prevent damage in transit.

FAQs

Many of the items I create are handmade at the time of purchase, and the time it takes to put your order together can be anywhere from 3 to 7 business days (10 calendar days). Don't know when your order is due to ship? Select "Purchases and Reviews" under the drop-down menu in the right hand corner of your screen. There you will see your order and if you click on "Receipt" you'll see the estimated date your order is due to ship. I'll do my best to meet these shipping estimates, but cannot guarantee them, especially during high ordering periods. Actual delivery time will depend on the shipping method you choose. See my shop policies for more details on shipping.

I'm happy to make free repairs to stitch markers that have fallen apart from being worked hard and well-loved. Just send me any damaged markers (don't forget the important pieces, like the beads because I'll need those!) and I'll restring, rehang, and make them as good as new. Then I'll send them back to you free of charge.

Miniskein sets are handmade at the time of your order. Multiple sets may be purchased - just message me if you'd like a larger quantity then what is currently available in the shop. Pictures of the miniskein sets are a representation of what you could receive from my collection. For those miniskein lovers who'd like to see what some of the yarns they are purchasing look like, take a peek at the full skeins in my Mini Made Flickr photostream: www.flickr.com/photos/ladydanio/sets/72157628409098037/

Please note that my items come from a smoke-free, cat-friendly household. Though my cat does not play with my products (she is totally bored by the knitting process), be aware that a wisp of stray hair could make its way into your package.

I describe and photograph my products as accurately as possible using a Panasonic DMC-LX7 camera with a Leica macro lens in natural lighting. Due to variations between monitors, your personal monitor settings, minor variations of daylight, color filters, or the uniqueness of the products themselves, the items you receive may vary slightly from the photos you see.

Yes, I offer wholesale options for LYSs and yarn clubs. I currently have stockists across the US, Canada and in Europe. Please contact me for more information.

Estimated Shipping

Zip or postal code

Your order typically ships within 7 business days (10 calendar days), not including weekends and holidays. Be aware that requests for customized orders may extend the shipping window. If you need something by a specific date, I recommend leaving me a note and/or upgrading to Priority shipping when you check-out. Everything you buy from me is handed directly to my mailman, Steve, before being shipped off to you!

When your order ships you will receive two emails - one from Etsy confirming shipment and another from me (Exchanging Fire) via Stamps.com with your shipment date and tracking number. Please check your spam filters if you have not received these important messages.

All items are shipped USPS First Class Mail and USPS First Class Mail International, and heavier items are shipped via USPS Priority Mail. Average shipping speeds vary from 3 to 7 days in the US, and international orders can take up to 4 to 6 weeks to arrive, according to the United States Postal Service.

Delivery confirmation is included for free with your order and is available for all US and Canadian addresses. Be aware that the postal service's tracking system may take 24 hours or more to update itself and that international shipping is not always trackable.

To add expedited shipping or shipping insurance to your order, simply use the dropdown menu in your cart to select the appropriate add-on. Insurance is available for both domestic and International buyers. It typically ranges from $2-5 USD for an order and can be selected at checkout.

Please make sure that your address is correct and up-to-date, as due to shipping liabilities, I can only ship to the verified address you have provided through Etsy and/or PayPal. If you need to change the address for any reason after placing your order, please let me know immediately and I will cancel the transaction and let you reorder using the updated address. If your order ships and is returned because you provided an incorrect shipping address, you will be responsible for the cost of re-shipping to the correct address.

If a package has been marked delivered by the post office, that is proof of delivery and it is considered delivered. If you did not receive your package, your next step will be to contact your local post office to declare it lost and request an investigation. For further help, please contact me directly.

If you need to combine shipping on separate orders placed around the same time I will do my best to honor your request, but be aware that it may not always be possible. During the Christmas season (from Black Friday through the New Year) I cannot combine orders due to the extremely high order volume. Thank you!


Payments

I accept PayPal and all major debit and credit cards, including Etsy gift cards. If you are using an eCheck or other form of delayed payment, please note that I will hold your item until I have received your payment. If using an alternate form of payment, please contact me within 24 hours of the end of the sale to let me know when you are sending your payment. If there has been no communication from you within 72 hours from the date of purchase, I reserve the right to cancel your order.

If you receive a product that you have changed your mind about, you are welcome to return it for a refund of the purchase price paid. If you would like to exchange an item, please note that these exchanges will be processed as returns.
