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.
If you've ever struggled with the decrease section when knitting a hat on 16-inch circular needles, you need to learn the Magic Loop method of knitting. Similarly, if you hate how sweater sleeves twist up while knitting in the round, you need to learn the magic loop technique.
This technique works on just about any size project, so you can use it exclusively for smaller projects in the round, such as hats, sleeves, mittens, cowls, socks, and so on.
Kelley just finished knitting the Shift Cowl by Andrea Mowry, and she's fallen in love with mosaic knitting.
While it sounds complicated or fiddly—mosaics are made up of little pieces of glass, after all—mosaic knitting is super easy. Seriously, you end up with a beautiful colorwork project, but you're only using one color in each row.
