Join the Colorwork Cowl Knit Along!
Featuring HiKoo's NEW SueƱo yarns
 
Michelle Hunter a.k.a. Knit Purl Hunter is hosting another of her fantastic mystery knit alongs ... and it's not too late to get in on the fun! This KAL features HiKoo's brand new SueƱo yarn.
HiKoo Logo
Ambiguous Cowl
by Michelle Hunter
Since this is a mystery knit along, we don't have photos or a lot of details on the project other than it's a reversible stranded colorwork cowl. If you've not done stranded colorwork (sometimes referred to as Fair Isle knitting*), this is an ideal project on which to learn since Michelle offers great tutorials via her blog and video tutorials.
* Fair Isle knitting specifically refers to techniques and patterns developed in the Shetland Islands—including the tiny island of Fair Isle—to the north of Scotland. Stranded colorwork is a more general term for such techniques developed around the world.
The pattern will be offered in two sizes: small and large. The cowl will be 8" tall and approximately 22" (40") around, after blocking.
For those of you who are not familiar with Michelle's mystery knit alongs, it is a mystery knit along. The pattern is released in four weekly installments, so each Thursday the next part of the pattern is revealed. Thus the mystery! This knit along (or KAL) started on Thursday, January 7th, but you are not too late to get in on the fun!
The pattern and videos will be available at KnitPurlHunter.com/KAL where you can post questions as well. You can also connect via the Knit Purl Hunter Ravelry group. Questions are typically answered daily. The video lessons along with the forums let knitters of all skill levels participate and get whatever help they need. It's like having a knitting tutor 24/7!

The yarn Michelle used is HiKoo's new SueƱo. This soft and luxurious yarn is a blend of superwash merino and bamboo viscose (or rayon made from highly renewable bamboo). It results in a gorgeous, drapey fabric with wonderfully soft hand-feel and a slight luster that makes even casual garments and simple accessories look rich and luxurious.
Fiber Content 80% Superwash Merino Wool, 20% Bamboo Viscose
Yardage / Weight 255 yds in 100g
Gauge 20–24 sts over 4″ on US 3–7 [3.25–4.50mm]
Care Instructions Machine Wash Gentle and Cold, Dry Flat
It's the same yarn as SueƱo, but it's dyed very differently. With the highlights and shadows of kettle-dyed yarns, SueƱo Tonal brings a bit of color variation to the table.
