April 2018 KAL — Transient Shawl

Update of April 8, 2018: The April KAL is underway so now is a good time to take a look at this project and see if it is for you! Michelle posted the directions for the first week on Thursday. Remember that if you want the pattern you will have to download it this month.


Skacel Knitting is sponsoring an April KAL (Knit Along) that will feature one of Michelle Hunter’s designs again. Michelle is a talented teacher and her KALs are always fun as well as educational. We are pleased to partner with these two knitting sites to present the April KAL this year.

Knitters will make a shawl this time. Michelle calls it “Transient” and is using HiKoo’s new yarn, Concentric, for the design. Her website shows a view of the project and is the location that gives even more details for the project. Remember that the photo is only a prototype that shows the shape of the garment. The actual stitch patterns are a part of the week-to-week surprise of doing a KAL with Michelle.

Our KAL FAQ gives the basics on how to participate in these free knitting events.

Transient is being knit using a new yarn, HiKoo Concentric that comes in 200 gram cakes. Check out the colors and order your cake now so you can participate in this fun KAL.

We ship on Tuesdays. The Knit Along starts on Thursday, April 5, so there is plenty of time to get your cake of Concentric to you!
