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.

(Even we don't know
what it looks like!)
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!

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).
