The Hiking Reindeer Cowl will be the perfect first project for 2021.
Julia plans on casting on for this KAL as the ball drops to mark the end of 2020, and the beginning of 2021. Please join her!
Knit in 2 colors of fingering weight yarn. We have several suggestions for yarns to use. For the silhouettes
I have just received over 25 skeins of Black Happy Feet!
This fair isle cowl is knit in the round from a chart. Only 1–100g hank each of 2 colors is needed.
Follow Julia on our Facebook Group page to see what yarns she has chosen, plus what other yarns are available for this project.
The Pattern is FREE on Ravelry.
The Knitter‘s Edge has many, many choices in the fingering weight range of yarns. You need 2 hanks for the Hiking Reindeer Cowl.
Choose a solid for the trees- either black or white is suggested.
Then choose a colorful background shade.

#2 KAL starts January 12

The staff of The Knitter‘s Edge is working on a fun sampler blanket for you to knit up. It is based loosely on the Homestead blanket pattern 3139, shown above. There will be 8-10 horizontal pattern stripes (yeah you could change colors too if you want). Each stripe will be designed by one of our staff. The baby size blanket will take just 3 —100g balls of a worsted weight yarn- Encore, Comfort, Weekend or Neve. I will also enlarge the pattern for a adult size throw.
More to come… We are just getting started!!
