UPDATE: Thanks for your interest in Weather or Knot! Please note, while we have many colors of Coast, we WILL be making color substitutions for these colorways at this point. If you'd like specific colors, please consider making your own kit by choosing 7 colors of Coast by Holst Garn.
Track the temperature for 2019 in a unique way, by creating a scarf that changes colors as the temperature does. The 2019 Weather or Knot knit-along features seven colors; you'll knit 2 rows, down and back, each day, choosing your color based on the day's recorded high temperature. The scarf also features a simple, optional design element based on the day's temperature compared to the historic averages for that day. Full instructions, background information, and worksheet are included.
Each kit contains 7 skeins (1 skein each of seven colors) of Coast by Holst Garn*, the Weather or Knot pattern and accompanying temperature averages worksheet.
Needle requirement: US 4 (3.75 mm) straight or 24" circular needle.
Using a US 4 will result in a somewhat open scarf, depending on your gauge. For a firmer fabric, you may want to use a US 3 (3.5 mm) needle. If you opt for the smaller needle, the resulting scarf will be somewhat narrower and shorter

*While seven skeins of Coast is more than enough yarn to complete a scarf, we can't predict the weather for 2019, so are not able to guarantee that one skein of a particular color will be enough, depending on how many days a particular color is knit. Coast's generous yardage (383 yds) makes this unlikely.
