October Featured Pattern 2 - Refuge

Pattern: Refuge, by Sarah Jo Burch

Suggested Yarn: Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted Yarn

Suggested Needles: US 9 / 5.5mm

This month, we couldn't choose just one pattern for our featured pattern section, so instead we've got two! Refuge is a new pattern from Sarah Jo, who offers a pattern freely to her followers every year with the hope they will use it for charity. And so we are going to use and abuse her generosity, and make as many cowls as we can for Syrian refugees!

Here's what Sarah Jo has to say about the pattern:

Refuge - shelter or protection from danger or distress; something to which one has recourse in difficulty. This cozy striped cowl is a part of my response to those who have no shelter - the homeless, the refugees, those who are literally left out in the cold. I wish that I could knit one for every homeless person in my city as winter approaches - and I hope that as a collective, we knitters will always work together to warm the hearts and bodies of those in need.

This pattern is free - please consider giving what you would have paid for it to provide shelter {here is a good place to start}.
