AUGUST KNIT ALONG

Knit Knit Cowl!

Kyle Kunnecke of Kyle William will be leading a KAL starting August 8, 2019.
The pattern will be available for download on 8-8-2019, both here and on Ravelry.

Proclaim your love for the craft with the Knit Knit cowl. Designed with an easy-to-follow chart, follow the letters as each row repeats the in-the-round mantra of knitters everywhere! 
Once in a while, the letters line up for a vertical "Knit" as well! This project requires knitting knowledge including: provisional cast on, knit/purl, reading charts, increase/decrease, and simple finishing; all on circular needles.
We have a lovely selection of Sueno for you!  You can do this KAL here at the store with us Thursdays 1- 3 starting the 8th going through the 29th. Or knit it on your own!
