I don't like paying more for a simple haircut, either. 
It starts with toys and baby clothes, and continues for the rest of our lives: items that seem identical have different prices according to which gender they're marketed to. We take this for grante...

You can email the designer, Judi Weingarden, in Ravelry where it's still listed as a free pattern: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/judis-building-block-cowl I'll ask her in Facebook if it's available somewhere else now. 
Ravelry Project Page Everyone, especially beginning crocheters, should know about Judi's Building Block Cowl. It's a lovely and warm new crochet cowl scarf designed by crochet teacher Judith Weingarden. As she explains below,...

Hi Vashti, (LOVE the name) 

I have been quickly looking for a place that says "contact" me--I wanted to to you about the slipsliding sc....have you tried it on something larger than a scarf.  I'm thinking shawl.  I LOVE the look of it.  I can test it myself later--in a crunch of other projects and just stumbled on your tutorial/pattern for it.
If YOU have time---:D
Thanks,

Alethea

I enjoyed Marty Miller's new Mastering Foundation Stitches online class! Reviewed it on my blog in light of the "extreme" no-limits Tunisian crochet increasing I've been doing recently.

I've summed up 5 blocking methods for crochet in this blog post. Do you have a favorite? Mine is #2, damp blocking, perhaps because I live in humid Florida.

I love that you've already discovered how great crochet is and you're only seven! I was nine or ten when I learned how. I practiced new stitches by crocheting things for my sister's dolls.

I'm getting a new Tunisian crochet pattern ready to release this week. Will also be blogging it out: the pattern prep. "NOT Tunisian Crochet Stitches: a Converted Swatch" is the first post. (It's about a regular crochet version of the Tunisian pattern.) http://designingvashti.com/blog/

Story
Tagline
I'm a professional crochet designer, pattern author, and teacher who's in the midst of building a digital pattern publishing empire :-) Find out more about me and crochet at my new DesigningVashti website: www.designingvashti.com
Introduction
As of 2004, I'm a full-time professional crochet thinker and tinkerer. I produce industry-standard crochet patterns, classes, articles, and other materials to promote crochet as many things: an art, hobby, learning tool, and practical medium. If I were you, I'd sign up for my newsletter because I try to write about what I don't see others writing about crochet.
Bragging rights
My crochet designs and blogs have been nominated for and have won awards. See the right sidebar of my blog for deets: http://designingvashti.blogspot.com/
