Mystery Cowl Knit-along!

Yes, yes, yes! This is going to be so great!

Tina's Silver Lining

I have teamed up with the talented Tina at Blue Moon Fiber Arts to bring you a fast and fabulous knit-along.

I can't actually show you anything but I am telling you this pattern is cool. It works with variegated yarns. You read that right. I have knit three of them so far and I am going to make more. Perhaps you don't know me very well but this never ever happens. Ever.

Tina took this picture, obviously

The pattern is divided into three clues to be released on three consecutive Tuesdays:

Clue 1: November 13
Clue 2: November 20
Clue 3: November 27


Yarn: Bulky-weight yarn. Suggested yarn: Blue Moon Fiber Arts De-Vine [100% Wool; 225yd per 200 gram skein]; 1 skein for small or medium size, 2 skeins for large size.

Edited to add: The large will wrap around the neck twice easily, the medium will do so snugly, and the small not at all.

Needles: 1 set US #10/6mm, 1 set US #13/9mm, AND 1 set US #15/10 mm 24” or longer circular needles, or size to get gauge.

Notions: tapestry needle, five 3/4”/2cm or 1”/2.5cm buttons

Gauge: 14 sts/20 rows = 4" in stockinette st using smallest needles. NOTE: Gauge is not critical.

De-Vine is luxuriously squishy in the best way

You get a discount code to use to purchase the suggested yarn at a 10% discount. De-Vine has already been discounted online around 10% which gives you nearly 20% off of the original price. 

Tina and I have picked out ten great colors that we know will look beautiful in this pattern. They are being dyed up right now, so that when you order them, they will ship FAST. You are free to use any yarn you like, just keep your eye on the calendar and secure yours soon.
