The Great Feministy Cowl KAL

Oh I have so many things to talk about! But let me start with a time-sensitive thing that I should have told you last week: the Great Cowl KAL by designer Liz Abinante of Feministy.

You may know Abinante from some of her earlier designs: I know people who have knit Saroyan, the Traveling Woman shawl, and Temperance sock pattern, among others.

Abinante has five new cowl patterns. The first one is free; the other four will be for-pay. But if you participate in the Cowl KAL, you can unlock the other four patterns for free!

You have a total of 50 days, 10 per pattern. Finish the first pattern and submit your pics, and you will receive a free copy of the second pattern. And so forth.

It sounds fun, and the first pattern (Flurries) was released today. It is due on February 8th. Needles ready!

    This sounds like a great challenge, and I’ve been wanting to knit a cowl for myself. Surely one of the patterns will look good on me, and the rest could be gifted. Thanks for the links!

  • Oi! I’ve grabbed the first pattern, but I don’t think I can knit fast enough to earn the rest. Unless I quit my job… Yeah, that’ll work.
    Is it necessary to join the traveling woman group in order to participate? Or, rather, attempt to participate?

    I needed to know this before I came to school…wait, if I unravel the 3″ of sock cuff (just about to do the heel flap) I can start it tonight…I’ll just have to do it all on double points, that should be, um, interesting, but hey, I could use the challenge!

  • Oh that sounds like a ton of fun! Too bad I can’t afford yarn these days. I’ll have to remember to check it out. :)

    Wow, that’s a neat idea! I think I shall have to play along.

    Dammit, way to *totally* torpedo my queue, which in addition to knitting, includes spinning and weaving items. Cast on three times tonight too. Apparently I have recently lost the ability to join in the round without twisting. #n00balert
