Rowan Colourscapes Chunky

While looking for something entirely different, I found a scarf I had started almost 2 years ago. I have no idea why I had set it aside. It was 95 % done and was turning out just great. Why it got lost in the bottom of a knitting bag, I don't know. Maybe I had been distracted by a Fleece Artist order. I decided to just finish it off but I couldn't find the pattern. The pattern, Cora, was a free download on the Rowan website ( I logged on to download a fresh copy.

Cora is knit in Rowan Colourscapes, a chunky, self striping yarn which is available in a beautiful rainbow of colours.
Cora was knit in colourway Spring #442

Looking around on the Rowan website I noticed a few new FREE patterns for the Colourscapes

KEW, above, is knit in a new colourway for this season, Jungle #447,
