Neck & Neck! MKAL £4.50


The second joint MKAL by Sarah Alderson and Ann Kingstone

This MKAL is designed to stretch your creativity by giving you not one, but two options for each section of a beautiful cowl. 

Each section has one design by Sarah Alderson and one design by Ann Kingstone. They can be mixed and matched giving you eight different cowl pattern options in total! We will send out a section of two great linked designs each week and the choice becomes yours.

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. Each part will have one option designed by Sarah Alderson and one option designed by Ann Kingstone. They can be mixed and matched giving you many different pattern options.

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.
