Join the Prairie Spun DK Knit Along!

Over the last year,  Claire Borchardt of A Fiber Collective published a series of beautiful patterns in Prairie Spun DK. The small collection, comprised of sweaters, socks, hats, cowls and other accessories, sparked a desire to cast on her knits.



Claire has made it very easy to access her gorgeous designs. Of the 10 Prairie Spun DK patterns, 8 are free to the public. We wanted to celebrate her beautiful patterns and generous spirit with a knit along!



Each of the accessories featured here are available for FREE on A Fiber Collective. Claire’s patterns feature a range of techniques, from colorwork to cabling and textured stitches.

To join the knit along, simply cast on one or more of Claire’s Prairie Spun DK designs. Two knitters who use Prairie Spun DK and post photos of their finished knit with the hashtag #PSDKAL will be eligible to win $50 to! We also encourage knitters to join our PSDKAL group on Facebook to share their progress and FO, ask questions, and enjoy the PSDKAL community. To sweeten the deal, from now until October 31, use code PSDKAL for free shipping on ALL orders of Prairie Spun DK.



One of the things we loved about Claire’s Prairie Spun DK accessories, aside from the elegant, contemporary details and timeless style, is that each pattern requires no more than 1-2 skeins of yarn.



Knitters can easily make more than one of Claire’s patterns if they wish for multiple entries in the PSDKAL. The knit along runs  until November 13, with the winners announced on November 14, so there’s plenty of time to knit!



We also love these patterns for the holidays. Each of these accessories would make a wonderful gift for a friend or loved one this season.

I’ve already picked out my colors for the #PSDKAL—a range of autumnal hues that will look lovely in Claire’s designs. Below is Prairie Spun DK in Anaheim Pepper, Ash Hollow, Parchment, Honeycomb, and Reclaimed Wood.



As for my first project, I’m thinking of But First, Socks. I’ve been on a sock knitting kick as of late, and also… I feel obliged to obey that name! But first, socks!

After that, I’m considering either the Ryegate Hat as a gift for my husband, or the Easy Ear Warmers as a gift for my mom. With a month+ to get the knitting done, I might try for all three!

Don’t forget to grab FREE shipping on all Prairie Spun DK orders with the code PSDKAL. The code is good until October 31. And remember to use #PSDKAL on social media so we can see what you’re making and find your FOs when it comes time to choose our winners!
