The 2022 Hiberknitalong is a cozy, deep-winter KAL to keep us all energized through the darker months. Set the tea kettle on and get ready for the HIBERKNITALONG!
The Aurora Cabin Shawl by Stephen West pattern launched on November 4 along with our Hiberknitalong kits.
We will cast on this shawl together on December 26 along with other knitters around the world!
Five colors of fingering weight yarn make up this beautiful semi-circular shawl. This pattern is knit seamlessly from the top center down to the chevron border. Simple sections of stripes and slip stitches alternate between the multi-color slip stitch sections. You only work with one color at a time, resulting in a mesmerizing and elegant pattern. The final chevron section decorates the border followed by an I-cord bind off. Select five high contrast colors for a bold statement or try five soft shades for a more subtle shadow effect.
