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!
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.
Get your yarn now ... there's still time to join in on the Fun!
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.
