The Howling Winds Cowl has finally been released! Start looking for it at your local yarn stores next month, as copies can be obtained through their rep and are free with a purchase of a skein of Rasta. The pattern is made in exactly one skein of Rasta in Solis, but would look good in any of Rasta’s colorways. It knits up quickly and is a great gift for yourself, or anyone who lives in colder climates!

If you have already purchased a skein of Rasta, but still want to knit the cowl, the pattern is available!

    I just bought 2 skeins of Rasta from Knit Stop in Indianapolis with the intention of making this cowl. Asked for the pattern and they had no idea what I was talking about! Even offered to pull up this page, but they refused. So upset and don’t want to pay for the pattern since I bought the yarn.

    Thank you for letting us know. Some yarn stores may not have received copies of the pattern from their rep as of yet — I will send you a courtesy copy via email.

    If your LYS does not have the pattern for you (they need to ask their rep for it) or is unwilling to get it for you, please message the designer on Ravelry with the name of your LYS to get a copy of the pattern.

    My LYS had an advertisement for malabrigo yarn in a magazine with this beautiful cowl on the model, however the pattern I was given looks different than what is on the model in the magazine. The pattern doesn’t look as bulky as the one on model in the magazine. Any suggestions? Thanks, Amy

    This blue “Howling Winds” cowl is a different thing altogether from the one pictured from book 3, as you have posted here. These are 2 different patterns!
    I cannot get the pattern from Book 3 at my LYS without actually buying the book, which is sad because I really want the multi-colored version on the model in the white dress from Book3.
    Can anyone help get the pattern for the one with the buttons?

    It is illegal to reproduce these patterns without the designer’s permission — this is why you aren’t able to get them separately. The designers signed on to protect the copyright of the book. It’s what helps pay those of us who worked on it but aren’t getting extra from the book sales themselves 😉 All the patterns are available in the book — why not just go in on the book with a friend and share?

    It supposed “book 3” to be on the LYS, but it is delay. Freighter says it is because to the snow

    I purchased 2 skeins of Rasta #853 Abril from Jimmy Beans Wool and did not get this free pattern. I would really like the Howling Winds Cowl pattern as I think it would be a great project for the yarn I just purchased.

    The pattern is not free from online vendors, only from local yarn stores. The idea was to encourage shopping at your local yarn store. If you are local to Jimmy Beans Wool and entered the store to buy your yarn, please email me and I will send you a copy of the pattern.

    Hello! I just purchased two skeins of Rasta and asked for the Howling Winds Cowl pattern. They told me they had run out and gave me a pattern for another cowl, but I prefer the Howling Winds by far. Would it be possible to email this to me? Many thanks, Amy

    I am extremely confused with this pattern. My cowl DOES NOT LOOK like the pic. I followed the pattern. My LYS owner gave me the copy and made an adjustment because she said the pattern was wrong. She scratched off for row 2 sl knitwise, she said it should be sl purlwise. I keep looking at my piece and don’t know what to think. I spent 24 dollars for what? I NEED HELP!!!!!!

    I purchased 3 skiens of rasta on 11/01/2016 from Fancy Tiger Crafts (59 Broadway) in Denver, Colorado. Is there any way I can get the pattern for the Howling Winds Cowl?
