Announcements

Two shawls have been released as part The Chekhov Collection, with the third and final coming June 15, called The Three Sisters. Each shawl will be available individually for $6 or you can use Ravelry code CHERRY through 11:59 PM EDT June 23 to get all three shawls for just $5 total. Click here to view the collection in Ravelry. Click here to apply the $5 code.

 

I also released a shawl called the Carrick Bend Shawl. It’s written for one, two, or three skeins of worsted weight yarn in a main color plus about 75 yards of a contrast color – so you can make a shawlette, shawl, or shlanket. The main shawl is a fairly simple crescent shape, so it can handle just about any dye job. You finish with a contrast picot bind off, then make a Celtic knot called a Carrick Bend Mat out of I-Cord. Sew a button on the back of the knot, and it becomes a closure you can use to keep the shawl on your shoulders. I used Dragon Hoard Yarn Company Storyteller base and filmed a video tutorial on the Kino Knits YouTube channel to teach you how to tie the knot.

Finally, the ICYMI MKAL shawl clues are all out! I’m going to release a unified copy of the pattern around July 1. Kino Knits newsletter subscribers will get a discount code for that, so sign up if you’re interested at kinoknits.com/newsletter.

KALs

Grad Your Stash 2019! Wrapping up June 15. The idea of this KAL is to take the oldest stuff in your stash and help it graduate into becoming an FO. You can spin, weave, knit, crochet, tat, whatever… just as long as you finish.
