Scoreboard Cowl Knit-Along
We'll begin with the kick off of football season and knit through the NCAA National Football Championship Game (or whenever your favorite team finishes their 2015 season)

Knit during the game, or check in with us each Monday morning on our Facebook page for the sequence of stripes for each Alabama and Auburn game.

Here's how it works...
The Scoreboard Cowl is worked in the two (or three) colors of your favorite football team. The main color (MC) represents your favorite team and their points, while the secondary color (CC) represents your team's opponents and their points. There's also an option to add a third color, to provide a visual break line between the games.

The idea is simple. When your team scores, you'll knit a round in the MC for each point scored. Did they kick a field goal? That would be 3 rounds. Did they score a touchdown? Another 6 rounds. Was the extra point good? Add another round! Should the opposing team score on the subsequent drive, their points will be knit in the CC (same rules as above). Follow this structure the entire game, switching back and forth between the MC and CC, depending on which team scores. All rounds will be worked in knit stitch, except the optional game-dividing purl rounds. When the season is over, you will have created an amazing wearable knitted record of your team's 2015 season in the Scoreboard Cowl.

Easy Folded Poncho - Modern Cotton Colorblocked Version

Our super-soft accessories are fun-to-knit projects that provide the perfect practice for learning to make 'jogless' stripes and for keeping your color changes neat and tidy. Simple to knit, the Accelerating Stripes cowl or fingerless gloves would make a wonderful gift and there's still plenty of time to get them knitted up and tucked away for the upcoming holiday season.
The squishy soft yarn we suggest is Debbie Bliss' Cashmerino Baby and we've gathered a host of stylish color combinations from which to choose. The entire project takes only 4 skeins of yarn and it's just $11.50 a skein. Wow! That's less than $50 for a cowl and fingerless gloves. We'll have one of our Serendipity experts on hand to share some special tips and tricks throughout the knit-along, so join us around the table for some fun-filled knitting with kindred spirits.
