Quick Knits Ideas and KAL
I’ve just started a Quick Knits KAL over here on Ravelry, because holy cats, how are we already at the middle of November? Holidays, people. Winter is coming. Personally, I’m panicking a tiny bit. This calls for some quick knitting!
Jaala and I both whipped up some speedy knits recently, had an impromptu show and tell in our staff break room, and realized we might not be the only knitters freaking out.
Join our KAL by casting on a project with a Knitcircus yarn, post your progress, and be eligible for amazing prizes. This KAL ends December 21, so cast on now! We’re featuring Jaala’s pattern Michigan Waves:
Here’s Jaala’s seed stitch hat that she just brought in for show and tell:
yarn: 80g cake of Lap of Luxury in colorway Spring Awakening
pattern: Toboggan Run by Jaala Spiro
And here’s my cowl:
yarn: 100g cake in Magnificent DK in the colorway Also I Can Kill You With My Brain
pattern: Codachrome by Theresa Schabes
Here are a few more small knits in Knitcircus gradients that we’ve been inspired by for our Quick Knits effort.
yarn: 75-100g cake of Ringmaster in the colorway Pigeon
pattern: Vanilla Twist by Jaala Spiro
Here’s a cowl knit up by Raveler Miazoe:
pattern: Starry Night by Andrea W.
This next cowl gives you an opportunity to pick out some gorgeous buttons. Here we’ve used washable bamboo buttons from Katrinkles that have a 1 x 1 ribbing pattern laser etched on them.
yarn: 100g cake of Ringmaster in the colorway Treebeard
pattern: Ellis Cowl by Carina Spencer
And finally, a shop favorite. Over the Rainbow, one of our bestselling colorways, brings this hat pattern alive with its clever combination of garter and stockinette:
