I'm a new knitter. I tried this cowl and it turned out quite well. I've gifted it to my sister and will make one for myself too.

I ran a print of the Canaletto cowl pattern two weeks ago. I've now made it in both sizes. It is quick and easy. For both I chose Vanna's Choice medium weight acrylic yarn. It made up beautifully. I plan to make up two more during the late winter months with corresponding knit hats. Should be lovely gifts! One nice thing to note ... both my 50+ year old sister and her 20+ year old daughter wanted one so they are versatile and appeal to many age groups!

On clicked on Knitting Pattern and it worked

I an't download thi pattn. Help

Cannot download this pattern ???

why can't I down load this pattern?

where do i find the pattern for this ?

I began this cowl then lost the pattern and now it won't download. At least 30% of patterns I've saved to my patterns on this web site are inaccessible. I'm starting to think it's a huge waste of time.

Jan W. All other patterns downloaded, but not the Canaletto Cowl. Would love to get it. Ta

I have made two of these cowls. One for each of my daughters and am on my third. I made the larger size and this time even added more stiches fro a little longer cowl. It is so easy and you get lots of compliments on it

pattern downloads fine now :-)

Great cowl. Easy to access by going to Megan Goodacre's site and entering Canaletto Cowl in the search box.

Click on link on first page, it opens another with pictures and info, scroll to bottom of page and it has a box download fre pattern, then does .pdf file, and you click to save to your PC.

The link doesn't work for me either...Does anyone read these comments about this? Do they post when they fix the links?

I agree......wanted to see the pattern and the link did not work.

The link for this pattern does not work. :-(
