We're excited about our new Knitalong featuring the Mokum Cowl by Mieka John of Salt & Stone Knits!
The Mokum Cowl is part KAL and part skill-building with live Zoom sessions and tips along the way and we'd love to have you join us!
You'll need to know how to knit in the round and experience with colorwork is helpful, but if you're ready to dive in, go for it!
The techniques that we'll be sharing via Zoom and other online resources are:
•Crochet provisional cast on to create a folded hem.
•Colorwork tips and tricks - including catching floats and carrying floats across the front of your work.
•Picking up stitches in reverse stockinette and kitchener stitch to bind off and finish your cowl.
The yarn, you ask?
In choosing a yarn for Mokum, we wanted something 'next-to-the-skin' soft and a beautiful array of colors, and Julie's Melange n.1 is perfect.
We chose Brownstone for the main color and Natural Gris for the contrast, but there are so many combinations and we can't wait to see yours!

When you purchase 3 skeins of Melange for Mokum, just add the Mokum Cowl Knitalong option here in our online shop to your cart and a coupon will be automatically applied to discount the KAL add-on to free when you checkout.
Then... you'll receive an invite within 72 hours to join our Mighty Networks group where we'll be hosting the KAL with live Zoom sessions, plenty of tips and talk and yarny goodness along the way!
*If you want to use stash or different yarn, you can still knit along, socialize, and build your skills by purchasing the KAL option separately for $15 and you'll be invited to join the group!
Either way, we'd love to have you join us!
Please note... this is a virtual only event. We'd love to help you shop for colors in person at our brick-and-mortar shop, but we're not yet able to host in-person KAL knitting time or over-the-counter project assistance due to COVID-19.
"I love a moebius cowl as it is perfect for when you don’t want to have to weave in lots of ends from colorwork! Not to mention - it happens to be my favorite style of cowl to wear - double win!
Andrea's pattern includes everything you need, including a detailed overview of the design construction, easy to follow charts for the colorwork, video tutorials for the provisional cast on and kitchener stitch with illustrations showing how to join your finished cowl.
The yarn, you ask? The announcement for this Knitalong has been waiting for our restock of Julie's Melange N.1 as her new Yak blend is a great fit and we're excited to share that we currently have all colors in stock, and 2 new Melange colors for you!
We're happy to help select your perfect color combination via email (we love sending photos) or you can schedule a Virtual Shopping Appointment via Zoom and we can pick out colors together!
