Mystery Knit-Along with Knit Purl Hunter!

Haven't started yet? That's OK - we'd love to have you join us!

Center of the Yarniverse is so excited to participate in our first MKAL (Mystery Knit-Along) beginning in April. Sponsored by Skacel Yarn and hosted by Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter, a new clue will be released each Thursday morning in April.

What will we be knitting? Well, it *is* a Mystery KAL, but what we can tell you is that "Cable Channel" will be a stylish pillow featuring a gorgeous new and original cable design. Yarnista Sandy had the opportunity to test-knit this pattern and is absolutely smitten with the beautiful Cable pattern!
Center of the Yarniverse carries Hikoo Kenzie (you will need 4 skeins to knit the pillow cover) and we invite you to knit along with us this April. See the links for more information and supply list.
Friday afternoons, beginning April 5th, from 4:00 - 6:00 will be our KAL time here at the shop and Sandy will be here to help with any pattern questions.
