Nothing makes us more excited to find that perfect pairing between pattern + yarn. It’s the recipe for knitting enjoyment and a fantastic finished project!

And when it’s bundled up in a fun Knit-a-long? Hooray!

Moon Spot Cowl by SweaterFreak Knits

Looking for a fun Knit-a-long to take your mind off of holiday stress? Look no further!

Jenny of Sweaterfreak Knits is hosting the Moon Spots KAL, the perfect project for this time of year! You choose: cowl, mitts or hat… each one features fabulous textures (including that sweet bobble).

The first clue for the KAL will be posted on December 8th, with the final clue on December 18th, so you’ll have it all wrapped up before Christmas. That means these could be knitted for presents (if you’re the generous sort… I’m keeping the cowl for myself!)

The pattern listings are live now (and on sale before the first clue comes out), so head over to grab your place:

And head to the KAL thread to share your progress!

Never knitted a bobble before? No worries! Jenny was kind enough to come by our blog and share a step-by-step bobble knitting tutorial!

All three samples are knit in Louet Gems Worsted, Cloud Grey. Gems has great stitch definition, the cables and bobbles really pop! And… it’s super-soft to wear. Gems is 100% merino that’s ‘prickle-proof’!
