#1–KAL just started- you can still join in!

The Hiking Reindeer Cowl is the perfect first project for 2021.
Julia is featuring this KAL on our Facebook group page. Please join her!
Knit in 2 colors of fingering weight yarn. We have several suggestions for yarns to use.
This fair isle cowl is knit in the round from a chart. Only 1–100g hank each of 2 colors is needed.
We recently found this hat pattern that uses the same yarns.
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 (600yards) of a worsted weight yarn- Encore, Comfort, Weekend or Neve. I will later enlarge the pattern for a adult size throw.
So please pick out your yarn now and check your gauge (18 sts =4″ over st st).
The border and first stripe pattern will be released on Tuesday Jan 12.
