Fall Knit-along: Fiar

For our next Black Trillium Fibres knit-along, I'm excited to be featuring Fiar, an established design by one very talented Irish Girlie Knits. Fiar is a cowl pattern (two size options, I'm all about choices), and the reason we're using an established pattern is that we've added our own twist to Carrie's lovely bias-knit chevrons. Through test-knitting we've found a way to use an entire gradient kit and finish up with the same size cowl as the designer's intended original. Right now, Fiar Kits are on Etsy for pre-order with loads of color choices. I want everyone to get the color they're interested in knitting, so if you don't see your favorite in the drop-down menu please choose "other??", take a gander at my Gradients on Pinterest, then put your preference in the checkout notes. Over the next month I'm going to be dyeing gradients like mad to get ready for the KAL, so we'll be getting started on October 1st. I've already written up the Ravelry Group Thread so while we finish our last few days with Castanets folks can get ramped up for the next project as well. I hope you'll join us for knitting Fiar using one of my gradient kits - I think it will be lots of fun and a perfect fall accessory.
