Best of Knit Purl Hunter Designs
Michelle "Knit Purl" Hunter
A few years ago, Michelle pioneered the idea of an online knit-along that knitters around the world could participate in ... supported by the Ravelry community, video instruction and terrific patterns. The Progressive Needles Knit Along has set the standard for these online gatherings.
A quote from her book ... "I have always considered myself the luckiest person alive because I have a career that combines my two passions - knitting and teaching. I hope my passion brings success to your knitting and a thirst to broaden your knowledge. We have lots of fun ahead of us!"
Here at FiberWild, we feel honored to have supported Michelle over the last few years and hope you will enjoy her new book ... and making a project or two!
Oh, ... we almost forgot to tell you about the Pillow!
Join Michelle Hunter's "Adorable Ewe Baby Sweater" Knit-Along ...
Featuring HiKoo's Simpliworsted Yarn ... 20% Off!
It's not too late! ... Michelle (a.k.a. Knit-Purl-Hunter) has just started her next mystery KAL ... knit a baby sweater, the Adorable Ewe!
This sure-to-be cute sweater is knit in the soft Simpliworsted yarn and is brimming with essential sweater knitting skills. When you're done, you will have the perfect gift for your favorite baby or grandbaby! As always, we're delighted to help you find all the information you'll need to join the knit along and knit the project!
"Adorable Ewe" Sweater
Michelle's knit alongs (KALs) are mystery knit alongs. So there are no preliminary photos ... only a general of descriptions of the finished project. But she has told us that the baby sweater has a sheep-theme and will be way too cute to miss! ... checkout the sheep buttons!
The sweater is sized to fit a 6 month old baby and is appropriate for a boy or girl. Pick a boy or girl color ... or a gender neutral color if you are still waiting for the gender reveal!
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!!
After May 15 the pattern will no longer be free on KnitPurlHunter.com, but will be available for $6 as a Ravlery ePattern.

|Perspectives Kit in Plum/Brass|
You’ve heard that in life it’s important to keep things in perspective. I pledge to keep the new Mountain Colors Mystery Knit Along (MKAL) in perspective . . . . Literally. Because it’s knit in the Mountain Colors Perspective Crazyfoot yarn set!
Have you used Perspectives yet? It’s the perfect solution for the color junkie in you! Each set includes five mini skiens of coordinating colors of Crazyfoot yarn, a durable fingering weight wool that’s machine washable. Each mini skein contains 90 yards for a total of 450 yards per pack. You get a fun mix of colors – but not too much of any one color.
Bonus: We have the Crazyfoot Perspectives kits on sale at 20% off!
|Perspectives in Silver/Purple|
The MKAL is designed and hosted by Mari Chiba. You’ve seen her designs in Interweave Knits, Knitscene, Knit.Purl, Knitty, Twist Collective, and more in addition to self publishing on Ravelry. But on top of all that professional stuff, we know that Mari is silly and fun – so I’m sure that this will be a fun project!
We know that the mystery pattern is a cowl. What does it look like? We don’t know! Mari tells us that it’s approximately 26.5″ around and 16″ tall, and it’s a lovely lightweight cowl that can be worn in any season. She also said that it’s perfect for the intermediate beginner who is familiar with knitting in the round and is eager to learn some new stitches. How will Mari use the different colors in the Perspectives kit? We’ll all have to stay tuned…
|Perspectives in Sage/Moss|
The pattern is a Ravelry pattern and can be easily purchased through FiberWild! (along with our other 6,861 Ravelry patterns!). The pattern updates will be sent each week through Ravelry, starting with Clue #1 on September 3rd – just in time to stuff in your bag for your Labor Day Weekend trip! The remaining clues will be on the next three Thursdays: September 10th, 17th & 24th.
