In Case You Missed It – I ran an MKAL! And now all is revealed. ICYMI is a three-color semicircular shawl for DK weight. Have fun with lace, single-row stripes, and a delicious ruffle at the end. Take 20% off the pattern with Ravelry coupon code COMPLETE20 in July 2019 – or get an even better discount when you sign up for the Kino Knits newsletter. Don’t miss out any more!
For the entire month of July, all Kino Knits Sock patterns will be 50% off – no coupon code needed. (Click to see all my sock patterns.) Additionally, all proceeds from these sales will go to Refugee and Immigrant Center for Education and Legal Services (RAICES). If you are not in a place to be able to buy patterns, I have two free sock patterns – Stellen (available on Knitty) and Against the Grain (free when you sign up for the Kino Knits newsletter – link in profile). For every pair of Kino Knits socks completed in July, I will personally donate $10 to RAICES. (Paid-for and free patterns count, as do WIPs, but you must complete both socks for a pair.) Post your finished socks in the Kino Knits Ravelry group RAICES thread to be counted.
