Keep all your options open ... Buy an extra ball. You will need some yarn to swatch or maybe you are a “tight” knitter? Running out of yarn can be a real pain. Getting more yarn, in your color, with the same dyelot can be impossible! Purchase an “insurance” ball. We're glad to accept returns on full, unused balls of yarn!

The Project

"Behind the Scenes" Cowl

by Michelle Hunter
Free pattern posted
Progressively during the KAL

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.
