We're so excited to participate in the upcoming Transient Mystery Knit-Along to create a shawl knit with just one skein of the beautiful new alpaca yarn, Concentric,from HiKoo by Skacel.
The pattern will be free, and because it's a mystery knit-along, a new "clue" (a section of the pattern) will be released each week in April.
This is what Michelle has to say about this yarn and new project:
Yarn: Concentricby HiKoo, 100% baby alpaca, 200 g / 437 yards, one skein
Needes: US # 8(5mm) 32” circular needle
Gauge: Approx. 20 stitches and 40 rows = 4” in garter stitch, unblocked
Finished Size: 53” at widest edge, 27” deep
These knit-alongs are so much fun. Each week, Michelle will release a new "clue," which is the next part of the Transient pattern. Part of the excitement of mystery knit-alongs is the anticipation of the upcoming new clue! You'll love it.
The KAL is FREE and no registration is required. Simply go to knitpurlhunter.com anytime after 9 am on April 5th to download the first installment of the pattern. Each week, a new portion of the pattern will be released. Michelle will answer questions daily on her website and in her Ravelry group.
So get your ball of Concentric now—people are really loving this yarn! Our prior shipment sold out in all colorways within days.
Many of us knit garments and accessories, but not home decor pieces. Kelley is working on her Cable Channel Knit-Along project, which is a pillow cover, and it got me thinking about all of the cool projects you can knit to bring your love of fiber into your home.

Kelley shows you how to knit the Left Twist. This is a nice complementary stitch to regular cabling, plus you can add these twists without the extra work of using a cable needle. This stitch looks good as a border on the edge of regular cables.
