We love gradients. We love cowls. We love choices! This update is going to feature all 3!Are you a gradient lover too? If you are, we have an exciting new design to share with you. Michele Wang’s new cowl, Wollman Rink is a perfect fit for working with gradient color schemes. This slip-stitch colorwork cowl has quickly become a favorite of mine. Do you have a blanket in mind but you want to add extra colors and skeins to build on a gradient you’ve already put together? Or are you just ready to cast-on all of the new hats and gorgeous sweaters coming out for the winter season? You can! Here are the nuts & bolts of this update:
We are so excited about Wollman Rink, with its color play, gorgeous texture and timeless good looks, reminiscent of the venue for which it’s named. Whether you lace up your skates and take to the ice or watch from the sidelines with a steaming mug of something hot, Wollman Rink is the perfect accessory.
To help Michele celebrate the release of her pattern and upcoming Gauge and Tension Plucky trunk show this weekend, Hayley and I have put together a collection of fingering weight kits that we think are particularly fun and promise to be ever so pretty. Choose from gradients or play with color to create your own perfect cowl. The pattern will be available in Michele’s Ravelry shop beginning Friday, November 6 and she’s even offering 10% off through Sunday!
And, we’ve heard your requests for more gradient kits, and we are happy to oblige! In addition to the fingering kits, we will also have sport, worsted and bulkier (5) skein kits available.
I think it bears repeating that every color and base available in a kit is also available for pre-order in the quantity you want! Do you need a Quadri to go with your Wollman Rink? Pick up an extra skein of Bello Worsted or Snug Worsted, or even Scholar, and you’re good to go!
Before every update, please be sure to pop into the wishlist thread to let us know what colors and bases you are shopping for. This is such a great starting point for us in putting together update offerings of bases, single colors, collages and gradients. Then, we will post them in the locked update thread so you can easily scroll through to see what combos are speaking to Hayley and me!
Please join us on Friday, November 6 at 12 p.m. EST and again on Sunday, November 8 at 8 p.m. EST on the Plucky Blog for this multiple choice update! Here’s a recap of what you will find:
