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.

"Hempathy" is a great blend of cotton, hemp and modal. Two different strands plied together give this yarn a slight textured look and the hint of sheen adds a little reflectivity. The softness of cotton, the elasticity of modal, and the drape of hemp combine to make this the perfect yarn for summer sweaters and accessories!
