Happy new year! What better way to start of the new year than knitting seasonally inappropriate accessories! Woo! Well, inappropriate for us Aussies anyway. But at least you'll be prepared to be stylish for that first cold snap.
Lisa and I are psyched to bring you our first KAL/CAL of 2015 - Get Geometric!
I've designed a cowl and Lisa some complimentary mitts, both in a geometric style. We'd love for you to join us from the 19th of this month to knit or crochet along with your favourite design (or both!). We've got some great prizes, but best of all you'll have an awesome unique piece at the end of the event!
Stacked Triangles Double Knit Cowl
This is a cowl knit in the round using the double-knitting technique which sounds fancier than it actually is. The result is a reversible fabric that is double the thickness of stockinette for extra warmth.
The sample uses 3 colours, but you could use two or as many as you like.
Pattern available on Ravelry now - click here!
Chevron Fingerless Mitts
Lisa has designed these gorgeous fingerless mitts in two colours, using so-hot-right-now chevrons. They are worked flat and seamed, great for beginners.
The pattern is available on Ravelry here!
Of course there are prizes! Two winners will be chosen - one person completing a cowl and one person completing a pair of mitts.
The winner in the cowl category will receive yarn to re-recreate the pictured cowl, and an array of geometric themed goodies, as pictured below.
The winner of the mitt category will win yarn to make your own set of mitts, and an array of geometric items too!
You're in? Fantastic!
