KAL for Circular Perspectives Cowl
September 24, 2014
KAL – stands for Knit Along. I think I have mentioned that before but just wanted to let anyone know who might not be familiar with it. I just finished this cowl that was part a KAL from the Mountain Colors yarn group on Ravelry. I really like how it turned out.
The yarn used to knit this cowl was from Mountain Colors – Crazyfoot yarn – and came in a kit with the five different colors. The cowl is knit on size US 6 circular knitting needles and is knit in the round so there is no seaming.
The above photo is of the yarn and how it comes packaged in the kit with the colors in the order to use. I ordered two kits as I liked both of the color combinations and I will be giving this finished one away as a Christmas gift – so glad to have something finished super early this year. I knit this project on my new Chiaogoo knitting needles. This was my first time using this brand of bamboo needles and I love them. They are very pointed for bamboo. I got the small size interchangeable kit so there are sizes 2 through size 8.
You can see how nicely the colors transition and how pretty the stitch is in the above photo. This pattern looks complicated but I thought it was pretty simple to follow as long as you used markers in between the repeats in the pattern. I would think that if you are an intermediate knitter you can knit this cowl. It was also simple enough to do while watching TV or Netflix. The pattern can be found on Ravelry at this link: Circular Perspectives Cowl
The cowl can also be worn long, in a single layer. I am looking forward to knitting the other one in the blue-teal colors but I am going to have to wait as I need to finish up a couple of other things I have on needles or a crochet hook.
Fall and Winter seem to be the time of year for me to really get into a crochet and knitting mood. Are you working on any new crochet or knitting projects? Tell me about them by clicking on Leave a Reply.

Thanks! They do have Crochet Alongs- they call them CAL. I have done one or two of those in the past but seem to find more knitting ones. See you at the link up this coming Sunday!
Hi Kimberlee, wow your scarf is gorgeous and I LOVE the color of the yarn. You make such pretty knit and sewing creations. Too bad no else in the family likes tomatoes! Haha. Take care and enjoy your week.

Thanks Julie! I know – I keep trying to get them to eat tomatoes but all 3 of my sons take after my husband in that area and don’t like them.
