Peace Project


The Peace Project goes live on November 28!  What a super idea--let peace begin with ME and YOU!
Full pattern is available on November 28 with the Peace-along beginning on December 1.
Peace, we need it now more than ever.
“Let there be peace on earth, and let it begin with me.”
Last year after conducting the first “peace-along” It was jokingly said “if we could get knitters around the globe to focus on peace for 21 days we might create world peace.” At this point , no joking, what have we got to lose?
This  cowl pattern was designed by Christina Campbell to have a bit of a soothing stitch pattern. It’s a 4-row repeat. Knit ~1 repeat per day and at the end of 21 days (or close to it) you’ll have a peaceful cowl. Optional i-cord edging.
What’s a peace-along? There will be a daily tip on how to infuse more peace into your life. These tips will be available on my blog each day from December 1-21. They’ll be simple things, some from me and others from a few guests.
What you need:
  • Stash dive or purchase something yummy for your soul. Approximately 450-550 yds of fingering weight yarn. I used 2 skeins of Brooklyn Tweed LOFT. I love the rustic feel…it’s the intersection of luxury and strength.
  • Christina had lots of questions regarding color choices. She made 3…one from Wonderland fingering weight (Goat’s Beard color way) which was light grey and white. It’s gorgeous but the stitch pattern doesn’t show up as much as the solid color versions. The other two are made from Brooklyn Tweed Loft.
  • can you use variegated? Why not? If it brings you joy and peace then why not. 
  • If you are buying for this project maybe pick a solid or mildly tonal.
  • size 4 or 5 needles (US) ~32 inches. gauge information forthcoming.
Can you help create world peace? Spread this information as far and wide as you can. How many knitters can we get involved?
“Buy” the pattern now and you’ll get an update when the pattern goes live on 11/28.
