Mokum Cowl Knitalong

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!

Mokum Cowl by Mieka John - available on Ravelry
| Cast On Date :: Tuesday, October 12th |
| Finish Date :: Tuesday, November 2nd (or a few days later) |
| LIVE Zoom Dates :: Tuesdays 7-7:30pm - Oct 12th & 19th and Nov 2nd |
| Firefly Fibers Supplies | 3 skeins Melange by Julie Asselin
(2 skeins MC & 1 skein CC)*

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.

Knitalong | Moonwake Cowl

GIVEAWAY :: if you're knitting along and want a chance to win one of two Firefly Fibers gift cards, follow us on Instagram and tag your projects with @fireflyfibers and #FireflyMoonwakeKAL and we'll be selecting one WIP and one FO winner at the end of our knitalong.
Moonwake Cowl by Andrea Mowry
"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!

Moonwake is a great small project packed with a variety of techniques (provisional cast on, knitting in the round, colorwork, grafting...) - it's a skill-building knit for adventurous beginners and fun for more advanced knitters alike. 

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.
New to colorwork? Moonwake's rhythmic and short repeats make this a great project to try colorwork, or hone your colorwork skills. Knit entirely on a 16" circular needle, there's no need to worry about needle transitions, purling with more than one color, or increasing/decreasing in colorwork. 

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!
If another of our DK or worsted weight yarns strikes your fancy, then go with it! Leizu DK is always a favorite, Shepherd's Wool Worsted is so soft and squishy and Brooklyn Tweed Arbor would also be a great fit (although our inventory is still pretty lean with a lot of colors on backorder). This cowl would also be lovely in the softer colors of Woolfolk Far  and our current stock is on sale.
Need help picking your colors or "see" your combo before you order? 
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!

| Cast On Date :: Friday, Aug 14th |
| Finish Date :: Friday, September 25th |
| Firefly Fibers Supplies | DK - Worsted weight yarn of your choice in 4 colors (minimum of 125yds/color). If you’ve previously purchased yarn from the shop and want to use that to knit along, we’d love to have you join us! 

We'll also be doing a couple gift card giveaways on Instagram, so if you'd like to get in on that fun, stay tuned!
