Another Yarny Collaboration
After designing a piece to go with the first Maple Falls Romance, Hooked on You, I was delighted to be asked to do the same for novel number 2! As the books are a series, it’s a pattern series too – the first one was a hat, and now there’s a cowl! But first, a bit about the Much Ado About a Latte and its author.
Much Ado About a Latte officially debuted on January 4th of this year! My copy is still in the mail, but I can’t wait to read it! Here’s the blurb book summary:
Anita Bedford needs to face reality. It’s time to decaffeinate the dream that she and Tanner will ever be more than friends. Growing up in small-town Maple Falls, she’s had a crush on Tanner for years. But he’ll only ever see her as good, old, dependable Anita. Now she’s finally ready to make her own goals a reality. In fact, that deserted building next door to Sunshine Diner looks like a promising location to open her own café . . .
Tanner Castillo may know how to operate a diner, but he doesn’t know beans about love. After pouring his life savings into buying the Sunshine Diner, he needs to keep his mind on making a success of it and supporting his widowed mother, not on kissing Anita Bedford. First order of business: improve his customers’ coffee experience. Next, he should probably find out who bought the building next door . . .
It’s a bitter cup to swallow when ambition turns longtime friends and coworkers Anita and Tanner into rivals. Now that they own competing businesses, how could they ever compete for each other’s hearts? Or will the two of them come to see what’s obvious to the whole, quirky town of Maple Falls: potential for a full-roast romance, with an extra splash of dream?
Welcome to Maple Falls, where everyone knows your name, your coffee order, and your relationship status.

Now About the Patterns!
I worked with some lovely hand-dyed yarn from Arkansas Yarn Company and knit designer Cheryl Ham from Hypnotic Yarn to create the Anita Cowl! She did the knit version, and I created the crochet version.
Here’s a photo with the knit version:
And here’s my crochet version!
