The kit is a beautiful blend of three colors of Serenity Silk Single.  Two colors are in half-skein put ups and the third is a full skein. We have crafted four colorways that you're going to love!

The cowl is knit by alternating two colors in a bias-knit interrupted rib pattern. It is then bordered on both sides in the third colorway.

Michelle “Knit-Purl-Hunter’s” Transient Shawl KAL


Michelle Hunter's "Transient" Shawl Knit-Along ...
Featuring HiKoo's NEW Concentric yarn ... 20% Off!

Michelle's (a.k.a. Knit-Purl-Hunter) newest mystery KAL is a gorgeous shawl!  As with all of Michelle's designs, this shawl is sure-to-be well designed and very stylish.

Get your yarn just in time ... the KAL starts Thursday, April 5th! 

The Transient Shawl is knit in with one ball of HiKoo's brand new, 100% baby alpaca yarn "Concentric".  The yarn is named after the concentric circles that this cake of yarn so closely resembles.  Concentric is made from four non-plied strands, which create the distinctive color change. The colors change at a regulated sequence allowing for a wide range of design possibilities.

Pictured is a prototype of the shawl. This simple garter stitch example is in the exact shape of the Transient Shawl and knit in color #1022 Rainbow’s End.

The final Transient Shawl will feature different stitch pattern with each color change. You will find yourself racing to the next color change to find out what comes next!  Imagine how much prettier the real version will be with multiple stitch patterns inserted at the thirteen color changes.

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 Transient Shawl Knit-Along will start Thursday, April 5th, 2018.
