Tørkle KAL

Aug 1 - Oct 21, 2023

Hashtags: #jfmkal #rhinebeck2023

Level: Adventurous Novice

Join us for our first-ever KAL (knit-a-long) as we make this striking scarf to get ready for Rhinebeck 2023. This pattern by Ona Wöldten features short row shapes that are the perfect canvas for our variegated Making Tracks yarn.

The pattern includes four different variations, but the KAL will focus on Variations A & B, with Peggy knitting A and Amanda knitting B. Variation A is a larger diamond-shaped scarf with a fully symmetrical design. Variation B is narrower and triangle-shaped (basically one-half of Variation A).

How to Join

Purchase a kit for Variation A or Variation B, or build your own Tørkle. If you want to build your own unique color combination, simply add the skeins to your cart along with the Pattern & Instructions. The yarn used in your project must be 80% from JFM to qualify for a prize.

We’d love to follow your progress. Use the hashtags to be featured in our stories. We’ll check in weekly during our Millcast with our progress. To be entered to win a limited edition project bag filled with yarn, post your finished Tørkle to Instagram and use the hashtags by October 21, 2023. We’ll randomly select one lucky winner!

Rhinebeck 2023 Meetup

Wear your Tørkle to the Dutchess County Fairgrounds and we’ll meet up for a group photo. Details TBD.

Pattern Notes

Needle Size: Note that the pattern calls for lighter-weight yarn than we’ll be using for the KAL so we suggest adjusting the needle size to US7. US6 would also work and would have a tighter gauge.

Short Rows: This pattern uses a simple wrap and turn, not German short rows or Japanese short rows… And you DO NOT need to pick up the stitches you make doing the wraps.

M = “marker”, not “make”. This is noted in the pattern as well but we wanted to call it out since most patterns use M1R, M1L, M2R, M2L… to mean “make” but here it means “marker”. There are no increases or decreases in the pattern, just slipping stitches.

Another note about markers: the pattern designer recommends using color-coded markers so you will always know where 1 is versus 3 or 4. If you have numbered markers, even better! Otherwise, they recommend using rainbow-colored markers and assigning numbers like Red = 1, Orange = 2, Yellow = 3, etc. Do whatever works best for you!
