The Countdown to 2021 has begun and there I can think of no better way than to do a mystery make along to bring in the new year! Join Erin Lane Bags, Destination Yarns and Marly Bird from Dec. 26-Dec. 31, 2020 and make the Closing Time Cowl. Make something magical to wear in the new year!
Is there a knitting and crochet project?
If you have come to know me and my events at all, you know that I try to make them open to both knitters AND crocheters as much as possible. The Countdown to 2021 is no different, I will have a knitting pattern AND and crochet pattern.
What is the Countdown to 2021 project
The title sort of gives it away but I thought it was the perfect name for this project. The Closing Time Cowl is a fashionable accessory made with the hand dyed yarn from Destination Yarns. I kept the pattern rather simple and not too busy, and if you were to ask me (and you are) I think it is the mystery pattern is the perfect combination of pleasant knitting/crochet and intriguing stitches.
Where are the patterns?
Each day of the event, there will be another set of instructions added to the pattern. 🚨That means you need to come back to the pattern EVERY DAY by 10 am ET to get the next set of instructions🚨
The button link to the patterns can be found below. 👇
