The Caledonia Cowl

Blue Sky Fibers is running a KAL on Ravelry.
Our summer KAL begins today!
Join us as we knit the Caledonia Cowl in our Organic Cotton Worsted. Made of 100% Organic Cotton, this environmentally friendly yarn is naturally soft and makes for a great summer knit. Quick to knit and beginner friendly, you simply cast on with two strands and join the fun in this KAL. Easy color changes give Calendonia a modern marled look.

Our cowl is made using 3 hanks of No. 614 Drift, 1 hank of No. 625 Graphite, 1 hank of No. 626 Stone and 1 hank of No. 639 Wasabi. With 40 amazing colors available, your options are endless.

Once you finish your cowl, post a photo here in this thread to be entered in our grand prize drawing for a project kit to make the Endless Wrap. This kit includes the pattern and 9 hanks of our new 50 gram Woolstok yarn (or 3 hanks of 150 gram Woolstok). Shown below in color No.1302 Gravel Road, the lucky winner can select any one of our 21 great color options.

Win this prize!
This KAL runs from June 21 through August 31st, 2016. Knit as many cowls as you wish in our Blue Sky Fibers Organic Cotton Worsted yarns because the more finished projects you post in this thread, the better your chances of winning this fabulous prize!
We are also offering a 50% discount on your Ravelry PDF purchase of the Calendonia Cowl pattern through August 31st, 2016. Just enter “COWL” in the coupon code section at checkout.

Contest details:
Must be a member of Friends of Blue Sky Fibers (formerly Blue Sky Alpacas) group to be eligible.
• Must post a photo of your finished Caledonia Cowl project using Blue Sky Fibers yarns in this thread by midnight CST on August 31, 2016.
• We will randomly select our winner to be announced on Thursday, September 1, 2016.
I just spoke with Blue Sky and Canadians can enter.

Head over to Ravelry to post pictures when your cowl is finished.

I saw the finished cowl at TNNA.
The colours for this version are 80, 643, 635 and 628.

I really like it and think that I need to cast one on. I'm waiting a week or so because new colours are on the way.
 645 Iceburg
 646 Buttermint
 647 Blue Fin
 648 Plum Dusk
 649 Spiceberry
650 Bay Leaf

I might try it with Blue Fin as the main colour. Everyone needs a denim coloured cowl. But I really like Buttermint too. Plum Dusk, Spiceberry and Bay Leaf will play well together. Oh no. This is going to be a problem. :)

A little note about Caledonia. I live not far from Caledonia Ontario (my dad's office is in Caledonia) and one of my favourite golf courses in Myrtle Beach is the Caledonia Golf and Fish Club. I guess I need a Caledonia Cowl.
