Progressive Needles Knit-Along
Summer Progressive Needles Knit-Along ...
here is everything you need to know ... and a Yarn Sale!
Shop for KAL Supplies

Sponsored by Skacel Join the Summer “Mystery” Knit-Along! ... and FiberWild! is proud to support Michelle Hunter's latest Knit-Along ... and we have Skacel's Simplicity yarn on Sale at 20% Off!

Click to follow the Knit-Along The Progressive Needles Knit Along continues with a perfect portable project for your summer travels ... an exciting two-color hat, sized for baby, child or adult. The design is an adaptation of one of Michelle's most popular patterns and is “brimming” with new stitches and techniques sure to dazzle knitters of all skill levels.

The mystery hat is knit with two colors of Simplicity yarn by HiKoo. The Simplicity yarn has become a perfect everyday yarn made from 55% Superwash Wool / 28% Acrylic / 17% Nylon. Pick two colors that have a nice contrast ... perhaps your favorite team colors? The yarn is regularly $6.95 a skein ... we have it on sale at 20% off, so each skein is only $5.50 ... choose from over 50 colors!

Click to Shop Simplicity yarn! For those of you who are not familiar with Michelle's KALs, it's a “Mystery” Knit-Along. Because it is a "mystery" KAL, even we don't know what the finished hat will look like ... but we're sure it will be terrific! The pattern will be revealed in four weekly segments, starting on the 1st Thursday in July. Each week, the next part of the hat pattern is revealed ... thus, the “mystery”!

The pattern will be available at, along with educational “how-to” video clips. Also, there are two forums where you can ask questions and get help. You can post questions either on Michelle's KAL site or in her Ravelry group. Questions are typically answered daily. The video lessons along with the forums, let knitters of all skill levels participate and get help if needed ... it's like having a knitting tutor 24/7!

Click to Shop Simplicity yarn! Here are the materials you will need ...
  • Yarn: You will need 2 or 3 skeins of Simplicity yarn by HiKoo yarn depending on the size of the finished hat.

  • Baby - 16” - 1 skein Main Color, 1 skein of the Contrasting Color
    Child - 19” - 2 skeins Main Color, 1 skein of the Contrasting Color
    Adult - 21” - 2 skeins Main Color, 1 skein of the Contrasting Color

  • Needles: You will need three sets of needles to knit the hat:

  • US #4 (3.5mm) needle - straights or circulars
    US #8 (5mm) 16” - circulars
    US #8 (5mm) - double points OR 32” circulars for the Magic Loop method (for the top of the hat)

    The gauge of the hat with US#4 needles is approximately 10 stitches per inch (40 sts/4”) in k1, p1 rib, unstretched. As always, adjust the needle size you need to achieve gauge ... remember to block your gauge swatch before measuring!
