This week has been very exciting as I have finally been able to share a project that I am working on with my good friend and fellow designer Ann Kingstone - our 2017 MKAL! Neck and Neck! is a cowl pattern that will be sent to you weekly in three sections. The unique thing about this MKAL though is that each week you will get a choice of patterns - one designed by myself and the other by Ann. This gives 8 different beautiful and coordinated options to what the final pattern might look like! Last year we did the same format with the On The Other Hand fingerless mittens and it was so much fun, and the combinations looked so good, we thought we would do it again.
The MKAL will start with part one of the designs on the 3rd of February. Part two will be released on the 10th of February and part three on the 17th of February 2016. The final full pattern will be revealed on the 24th of February with winners chosen and prizes(!) announced for those who have posted pictures of their completed cowl in our Ravelry group forum page. You will automatically receive an email with the pattern update on these dates to download the next section.
We will be supporting you throughout the MKAL with online video tutorials and advice on our blogs, Periscope, Twitter, Intstagram and Facebook groups. We would also love you to join us in our Ravelry group where we will have forum threads for each update, spoiler threads and a finished cowl thread as well as chat and prize giveaways. We love seeing your colour and yarn choices and sharing with you the fun of a MKAL.
