The April Shawlette KAL - And the Yarn is 20% Off!

It's time for another one of Michelle Hunter's Progressive Needles Knit Alongs!  The April Knit-Along features a two-color shawlette knit in HiKoo's CoBaSi yarn. Perfect as a lightweight scarf or shoulder wrap, this stylish accessory will boost your knitting skills and brighten your wardrobe.

The Ridgely Shawlette
(Even we don't know
what it looks like!)
What will the finished product look like?  We don't know!  That's part of the fun.  Michelle will reveal a photo of the completed project with the last step, until then you watch your knitting grow and wonder what it will look like.  The pattern will be revealed in four weekly segments starting on the first Thursday in April.  What we do know is that the pattern is called "Ridgely," so, um, we're just guessing that it has some ribbing and ridges and such.

The pattern requires three skeins of CoBaSi.  The sock weight yarn is a new blend of Cotton, Bamboo and Silk (get it? CottonBambooSilk), with a generous amount of elastic, resulting in surprising spring and superior stitch definition.  Michelle used two skeins of #7 Kiwi (MC) and one skein of #3 Natural (CC) for her sample.  You can do the same, or you can choose from the over 25 CoBaSi colors that we have on hand.  Bonus:  All of the CoBaSi yarn is on sale now at 20% off!

CoBaSi #7 Kiwi (MC) and
#3 Natural (CC)
Never done a KAL?  It's easy.  Michelle will reveal the pattern on her website in four segments, one each Thursday in April starting on April 4th.  Have a question?  No problem.  The pattern includes photos and online video instructions.  It's like having a knitting tutor right by your side!  How much does it cost?  Nothing!  You don't have to register or pay any fee to participate. Bonus: you may even win some cool prizes from Skacel.  

Along with your three skeins of CoBaSi you'll also need US #6 / 4mm needles.  The shawlette can be knit with straight or circular needles.  I prefer the circulars, and my favorite is a toss-up between the addi Turbo, addi Lace or the Natura circulars.  As always, adjust the needle size you need to achieve a gauge of 7 stitches per inch in stockinette (if necessary).

Happy Knitting!
