LYS is ready for some football!
Join The Scoreboard Cowl KAL and make an AMAZING, wearable knitted record of your team's 2015-2016 season with your Scoreboard Cowl!
The Scoreboard Cowl is made with Simplicity DK from HIKOO and worked in the two colors of your favorite football team! Simplicity is a super soft, washable merino blend and it comes in SO MANY COLORS!
Choose a main color to represent your favorite team and their points, and a secondary color to represent your favorite team's opponents and their points. (There is also an option to add a third color, which provides a visual break line between games.)
The design of the cowl is simple; it is worked in the round in stockinette. When your team scores, knit a round in the main color for each point attained. Did they kick a field goal? Add 3 rounds. Did they score a touchdown? Knit 6 rounds. Was the point after good? Add another round!
Should the opposing team score on the subsequent drive; their points will be knit in the contrast color following the same rules noted above. Follow this structure for the whole game, switching back and forth between the main and contrast colors depending on which team scores. All rounds will be worked in knit stitch, except the optional, game-dividing, purl rounds.
LYS is having a KICK-OFF party on September 17th as we start the Scoreboard Cowl KAL with Skacel & Michelle Hunter! Join us for snacks--and to get your materials ready for the KAL! Free project bags for the first 10 people to purchase their yarn!
