There have been some very difficult decisions made over recent weeks.
Week 2 was particularly challenging for some of us – how to choose between the stunning Juno Fibre Arts Alice colour combinations?
The incredibly romantic combination of Cherry Blossom and Ethereal won the vote. Even the names of the colours are dreamy.
But it was very close and all the other combinations were popular as well. Which is why we’ve decided to take inspiration from ALL the combinations and create 5 Tribes for the knit along with a nod to each combination.
So in the knit along phase of the Curious Collective DKAL this year you will be able to Join a Tribe and knit your shawl inspired by your chosen theme.
The knit along phase of the DKAL is going to start towards the end of August when the pattern is designed and released.
The 5 Tribes and the colour combinations that inspired them are:
Art Deco Tribe (Inkblot and Oyster)
Sneak into a speakeasy and dance away the evening with glamour and exuberance in a fabulous fringed dress.
Enchanted Forest Tribe (Moss and Goldmine)
Fall into a forest of green and look out closely for sprites and elves with this fantasy theme.
French Vintage Tribe (Oyster and Stone)
Pull up a bench to a wooden table set with heavy linen cloth to enjoy a simply delicious meal of baguette, brie and tomato salad.
Space Age Chic Tribe (Gun Metal and Stone)
Travel to the future (or a different galaxy) and remain bang on trend today with metallics and shimmer.
English Rose Tribe (Ethereal and Cherry Blossom)
Step into the picturesque English countryside and imagine the Bennet sisters taking the air on a brisk walk to the village.
You can Choose your Tribe by nominating your choice in the Curious Collective Chat Thread on Ravelry.
The categories for the Curious Collective KAL are as follows and there will be some fabulous prizes:
Finished Object – Random selection
Prize for random draw from FO thread in Ravelry.
Finished Object – Best Styled FO
Prize for the best styled shawl in keeping with the theme of the Tribe.
Social Media Maven Prize
Every shout out for the Curious Collective DKAL posted on Twitter, Pinterest, Facebook or Instagram with the hashtag #CCDKAL will go into the draw for a special prize. Use the following Tribe hashtags for some friendly competition between the tribes!
Look out for a poll to vote for your Tribe on the blog at the end of the week when voting for Week 4: What border would you like? is finished.
For a very short time only the Curious Collective pattern is 50% OFF.
