To show our solidarity with the people of Ukraine, The Fibre Studio has created the Unity KAL. We have created kits which include yarn dyed in the national colors of Ukraine, a pattern we can work on together and a weekly Zoom. All proceeds from kit sales will go to UNICEF.
The pattern is theProgression Sideways shawl by Holly Kent of HEK Of A Knit. It is an asymmetrical shawl knit in garter stitch. It starts with a stretch of main color knitting and finishes with bands of short-row petals to form a colorful border. Although the pattern calls for three colors, we've chosen to use only the two colors of the Ukrainian flag. Our kit includes a code that allows you to download the pattern for free.
The yarn is our Studio Fingering dyed in a deep Sky Blue and a Sunflower Yellow. Each kit includes one 113g | 4.0 oz skein (approximately 560 yards) for the Main Color and one 56g | 2.0 oz skein (approximately 280 yards) for the Contrasting Color. We will offer two variants:
* Unity 1: Sky Blue as the MC with Sunflower Yellow as the CC; and
* Unity 2: Sunflower Yellow as the MC and the Sky Blue as the CC.
We're starting a weekly Zoom beginning March 16, 2022 so we may knit this project together as a community. It will be each Wednesday from 6-8 p.m.
All proceeds will go toUNICEF. Click the link for more information.
