Shop Yarns Now!

Last year, Skacel sponsored the first season of “The Fiber Factor”, where independent knitwear designers competed for world fame. This year, the favorite and most knittable designs are being featured in a series of Knit-Alongs, hosted by these now famous “Knitterati”.

Sponsored by Skacel In August, Steve May will be leading a Knit-Along featuring his popular design, the Crossbones Style Cowl which is available Free ... and we have all the HiKoo yarns on sale at 20% Off!

The cowl is knit in the round, featuring twelve sections of different knit and purl checkerboards patterns. The gauge of the cowl is approximately 4.5 st/inch (18 sts/4 inches) in garter stitch. The sample is shown knit in Kenzie in the natural “Pavlova” color. You can also knit this versitile cowl in Simplicity ... both yarns are in Skacel's HiKoo lineup. Choose a "manly" color and knit it for your guy ... or pick any of our large color selection in either Kenzie or Simplicity and knit it for yourself!

Every Monday in August, a video with Steve will explain what should be tackled that week while giving you hints and tips on knitting his unique design! The KAL starts Monday August 4th at 8:00 AM Eastern time (View KAL videos here). Steve will also be actively answering questions about his pattern and cheering you on in “The Fiber Factor” forum on Ravelry.

There is no registration or cost, simply download the pattern, get your supplies and check out Steve’s video starting on August 4th at 8:00 am Eastern time. Don't hesitate to call us if we can help with your yarn, needle or notion selections ... a great way to get a jump on your holiday projects!
