This simple asymmetrical triangular wrap consists of alternating rows of Stockinette stitch in one yarn and Reverse Stockinette stitch in a second yarn. Basic increases and decreases give it it's shape, and a sneaky little wrapping technique means you don't have to cut your yarn at the color changes … so there are just four tails to weave in!

Michelle “Knit-Purl-Hunter’s” Oh! Cowl KAL

Michelle Hunter's "Behind the Scenes" Cowl Knit-Along ...
Featuring HiKoo's NEW Oh! Yarn!

Michelle's (a.k.a. Knit-Purl-Hunter) newest mystery KAL is a snuggly cowl!

As with all of Michelle's designs, this cowl is sure-to-be well designed and very stylish. Plus, it's knit in the brand new, 100% supersoft baby alpaca yarn named "Oh!" If you can let it out of your hands, this cowl is certain to make a great gift!

The cowl will feature a "study in cables" ... if you have never done cables, have no fear ... Michelle's the perfect teacher to guide you through your first cable project!

As always, we're delighted to help you find all the information you'll need to join the knit along and knit the project!

The Behind the Scenes Cowl Knit-Along Started Thursday, October 5th, 2017.

The Project

Michelle's knit alongs (KALs) are mystery knit alongs. So there are no preliminary photos ... all we know is that the finished cowl is one size about 8 1/2" wide by 47" long and will feature a cable.  If history has teaches us anything ... this design will be amazing!

All of the techniques Michelle uses will be supported by her video tutorials and she answers questions daily on her website and Ravelry group. Michelle's instructions, tutorials and videos have made her KALs extremely popular ... think of her KAL as an online class, worth far more than the price of admission — which is, of course, Free!!

You can also connect, ask questions, share photos, and get help via the Knit Purl Hunter KAL Ravelry group. You're also encouraged to share progress photos to the FiberWild and Friends group on Ravelry.

The KAL is FREE and Skacel is sponsoring a drawing for one grand prize and two second place prizes. For more information on prizes and how to enter visit SkacelKnitting.com.

Note: After Nov. 15 the pattern will not be free on KnitPurlHunter.com!
It will be available for $6.00 as a Ravelry ePattern.
