We are very excited about the Kelbourne Woolens Vol. 1 book that is arriving at the shop this week! It is a wonderful collection that puts all of their most popular patterns into one place and provides lots of inspiration for those who are also Fibre Co yarn addicts! I was delighted to be asked to be part of the Kelbourne Woolens Volume One Blog Tour. As part of the tour, I was asked to pick out my favorite item from the book and show what I might pair it with. How exciting! (Also an excuse to use Polyvore).
I chose the Alice Cowl from the collection because I love how versatile it is! The right color would work for spring and fall outfits! I chose to style it in two ways – spring dresses and a skinny pant with tunic. I love pops of color so I used bright yellows and blues (and some accessories from my favorite indie designer, Orla Kiely)!
How would you style this cowl? What shade of Road to China would you make your Alice Cowl with? Leave a comment on this post and be entered to win a copy of the book! And then be sure to jump on over to Hannah Fettig at Knitbot for the next stop on the tour!
Join the knitalong and win free yarn!
If you want to make your own Alice, grab the pattern here or pick up a copy of the book this weekend from our shop. The cowl takes 2, 3 or 5 skeins, depending on the size that you want to make. I am going to cast on this weekend. Care to join me? As a bit of incentive, I am going to throw in the yarn for one of the projects in the book as a prize to the lucky winner.
Here is the color that I am thinking of using:
How do you enter?
Complete the Alice Cowl in a Fibre Co yarn (either Road to China Light or Canopy Fingering will work wonderfully…in fact you could also use a DK weight yarn such as Savannah or Acadia for a larger gauge cowl). Cowls must be completed by Monday, March 11th at midnight. Post your project over in our Ravelry forum, send us an email or stop by the store. One lucky winner will get the yarn (in their choice of color) to complete another project from this fab book!
