Hi, Knitters,

I don’t know about you, but now that September is here and the kids are back in school, I’m itching to start some satisfying fall projects!


We’ll be running a series of knitalongs in the coming months, and we’re easing things in with the Silk Moon Crescent Shawlette. This is my most popular design, possibly because it is such a quick and rewarding project. This garter-stitch shawl with an easy-to-memorize increase pattern is true potato-chip knitting!

Here’s the classic version made with Noro yarns; you can use any worsted-weight Noro you have in stash.


New for this KAL, we’ve released a new fingering version of the shawl! Many of you asked for fingering-weight instructions for of this fun knit, and we listened. Silk Moon Crescent now includes instructions for both worsted and fingering weight projects.If you’ve already purchased the pattern, you should already have received a notification about the pattern update.


Use any 400-yard fingering weight in your stash, or choose from Knitcircus Yarns’ 100g fingering gradients.


The KAL will start on Friday, but you can cast on as soon as you like. We have special Silk Moon Crescent Kits available in the shop, and we will be rushing kit orders made by September 19th. The dyed-to-order kits include a copy of the pattern and two cakes of Ringmaster or our new dk-weight Merino Cashmere Nylon, Knitcircus Calliope, in some of our best-selling colors. There are also a few special kits made up out of bases or colors that are currently in limited supply. If you prefer fingering, orders of any 100g fingering weight yarn made in the same period will include a free Ravelry download code for the pattern.


The KAL will include new prizes every week and will officially run from Friday, September 12th to October 15th. Please join us in the KAL thread in the Knitcircus Ravelry Group!


Have a happy start to fall knitting season,
