HKAL 2022 - Cast On

HKAL 2022 - Cast On

It's finally time to cast on the Aurora Cabin Shawl for this year's Hiberknitalong! Have you put together your perfect wintery palette and have you got your needles at the ready? Grab your yarn, cozy up with a hot chocolate and prepare to embark on some hiberknitting goodness as we all cast on and knit together. The Aurora Cabin Shawl is knit seamlessly from the top center down to the stunning chevron border, with simple sections of stripes and slip stitches alternating between the multicolor slip stitch sections. This pattern is a mesmerising knit as you only work with one color at a time to create a beautiful semi-circular shawl. I am so excited that cast on is here and I hope you enjoy this hiberknitting season filled with cozy knits and wintery projects! 

Still want to join the Hiberknitalong?

It's not too late to sign up for the Hiberknitalong! You can sign up by purchasing the individual Aurora Cabin Shawl pattern or by purchasing my Hiberknitting Number 3 book. The Hiberknitalong is such a wonderful and festive way for us Westknitters to come together and enjoy a cosy knit during the winter season and I am so excited that cast on is here.

Still not got your palette together or are you planning to cast on in your own time? I have curated some magical kits to inspire your knit that are available at Stephen & Penelope. Although you won't have your yarn in time for cast on, these kits are perfect if you have the Aurora Cabin Shawl lined up as your next project.

This year I collaborated with Life in the Long Grass to create stunning Aurora Cabin Shawl palettes. There are still some gorgeous Cosy Cabin kits available in the fiery warm palette, inspired by those cozy evenings knitting in front of the sparkling fire. This palette features new custom colors, dyed especially for the Hiberknitalong on Life in the Long Grass' lusciously soft Merino Singles base. Each kit contains 5 skeins of yarn, the Hiberknit Candle, set of 3 Notions Nests and the Hiberknitting 3 book + digital e-book download code with 8 new Westknits patterns including the Aurora Cabin Shawl pattern.
