As we enter the ultimate weeks, it’s time for a standing replace: who’s on crew hat, and who’s on crew scarf? And what number of completed tasks do we now have?

Group Hat

The Floating Spiral Hat by designer Owen Biesel is a fast knit, even with all of the cables. Labored in bulky-weight yarn (Debbie Bliss Donegal Luxurious Tweed Aran), the distinctive offset cable sample retains the knitting fascinating with out being difficult.

Joni’s cute neighbors Raelyn and youthful sister Ellie mannequin her completed hat.

The hat begins with a tubular cast-on—a element that actually elevates all the hat. In case you’re new to tubular cast-ons, take a look at the picture tutorial Joni, our senior venture editor, shared within the KAL dialogue

Stephanie has a completed hat (and is trying fairly smug about it)!

Joni and Stephanie have each completed their hats (and could also be engaged on multiples—these make nice items!). However how are issues occurring crew scarf?

Group Scarf

Two Interweavers determined to sort out the Floating Zigzag scarf, designed particularly for this KAL by none aside from Joni, our senior venture editor. The Floating Zigzag Scarf makes use of the identical offset cable motif because the hat however reverses the course of the cables as they zigzag their manner up the headband. Each our assistant editor Julia and content material director Tammy have forged on and are cranking out these cables. 

Professional Tip: Julia suggests not beginning three different tasks concurrently your KAL. 

Scarves are admittedly a bigger enterprise than hats, so it’s not stunning that progress on crew scarf is a little bit slower. 

Tammy has accomplished the primary cable part. PS: That is her first time knitting cables! She’s doing so effectively!
