Newish Knitter KAL for October - DRK Everyday Cowl by Andrea Mowry
Date: October 4, 11 and 18 (via Zoom)
Time: 7:00pm - 8ish pm Central Time
Description: Our Newish Knitter Knitalong is for knitters who have finished Knit101 and Knit 102 and are wondering what to knit next. The projects we choose help you practice your stitches and learn how to read patterns. This KAL is also for more experienced knitters who want to socialize with others while knitting a project where you can knit and chat at the same time.
In October we are going to knit Andrea Mowry's DRK Everyday Cowl. This cowl is very wearable and also makes a great gift. We will go over stripes, I-cord edging, and seaming. Once you get the stitches down, this is a very fun knit.
We know that the hardest part of any project can be picking out the yarn. For this project, we suggest:
- any two skeins of DK weight yarn OR
one of the Everyday Cowl kits we put together just for this project OR
- for a "faded" look, double-strand the fingering weight yarn in this kit
You will also need:
- The DRK Everyday Cowl pattern
- US#6 24" circular needle or longer
- measuring tape,
- row counter
- tapestry needle.
There is no charge for this virtual get-together, however, we ask that you purchase yarn from the store for this project. When you purchase your yarn write in the comments section that you would like to be added to the KAL! Don't worry if you can't make all of the sessions. We'd love to have you when you can make it.
