Happy Friday! Last Week on Oombawka Design…

Another busy week on Oombawka Design ๐Ÿ™‚

I added the RSS feed from my Blogger blog to the sidebar (yeah!) so you can read the posts that interest you the most. ย 

On Thursday I released my new Is It Knit? Basic Crochet Cowl Pattern for free ๐Ÿ™‚ You can download the Pattern on Ravelry and/or Craftsy if you are interested.

Here is a photo of the Cowls my fabulous Pattern Testers completed:


I still haven’t been able to figure out how to add a subscribe button for my Mail Chimp Weekly Newsletter to my sidebar – but I think I have figured out how to add it to my post. If you are interested in receiving an email every Saturday, summarizing my week’s posts in photos – please Subscribe to Last Week on Oombawka Design

I spent some time updating my Pinterest Pins – and added links to more than 60 free crochet patterns – feel free to browse and follow along on the boards of your preference here: Oombawka Design on Pinterest

My daughter Darla started JK this week – today is her third full day at school – she loves it and her brother hates it! He is at home and missing her all day – and every time we drop her off at school he says “Darla School Bad” and cries. ย I’m hoping he gets used to the change soon!ย 

Darla passed her first level in swimming lessons at the Y yesterday too ๐Ÿ™‚ so we are very pleased with her swimming progress – she is like a wee fish in the water!

This week’s Free Pattern Friday was on Fall Appliquesย and on Tuesday was a roundup of Paid Witch Patterns ๐Ÿ™‚

Which Witch do you like the best?


Hope everyone has a lovely weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi Sandy – I haven’t tried bulky yarns with that stitch yet – you would need to use a larger hook to make it work for sure – but the cowl instructions are written to use any stitch – so you could make a double crochet scarf using your hook and bulky yarn to the measurements specified – the WaistCoat Stitch is a bit ‘stiff’ as a stitch so you might have trouble with thicker yarn finding the correct spot to place the hook – without having the yarn ”split” ๐Ÿ˜‰ I will have to give it a go though just to find out!
