We have the perfect project to give yourself a much needed pick-me-up for the beginning of the new year! Kimberly’s Never Let Me Down Cowl is our January KAL, beginning Tuesday evening January 9th and ending February 6th. Kimberly will be in the shop during our community Knit Night on the 6th to get everyone started.
A KAL is when a group of people work on the same project and there is usually a specific beginning and end date. KALs are a lot of fun for several reasons! The participants watch each other’s projects develop, they offer support and encouragement to each other, and the use of different yarns is showcased. It’s also a great way to develop friendships!
Kimberly designed Never Let Me Down for her two best friends in high school. Jennifer, Alex, and Kimberly were always there for each other and each helped the others make it through their teen years.
Kimberly says, “This cowl is a great use for a zany yarn you like paired with your favorite neutral.”
Never Let Me Down calls for two skeins of DK weight yarn. It has a twisted rib pattern; purl one, knit one through the back loop. The unusual texture is created by pairing a DK weight yarn with size 15 needles. The texture pops after it is aggressively blocked!
This cowl is a quick knit made with an easy rib pattern; the best combination for ‘social knitting’! A colorful yarn is shown off to its best with this texture.
Come to the shop before January 9th to choose your yarn! Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to ohhh and ahhh over our selection of ‘zany’ yarns and to pair a neutral with it!
