About this Knit-A-Long!
Michelle "Commish Hunter" talks about the SCOREBOARD Knit-A-Long!
The Scoreboard Cowl is worked in the two (or three) colors of your favorite football team!
The main color (MC) will always represent your favorite team and their points, while the secondary color (CC) will always represent your favorite team's opponents and their points. There is also an option to add a third color, to provide a visual break line between games. In the BLUE, GREEN and SILVER example above, representing Seattle's 2014-2015 season, the BLUE represents Seattle, the GREEN represents Seattle's opponents, and the SILVER is the purl round that separates the games!
The idea behind the design of the cowl is fairly simple. When your team scores, you will knit a round in the MC for each point attained. Did they kick a field goal? That would be 3 rounds. Did they score a touchdown? That would be 6 rounds. Was the point after good? Add another round! Should the opposing team score on the subsequent drive, their points will be knit in the CC (following the same rules noted above). You will follow this structure for the entire game, switching back and forth between the MC and CC depending on which team scores. All rounds will be worked in knit stitch, except the optional, game-dividing, purl rounds.
When the season is over, you will be left with an AMAZING, wearable knitted record of your team's 2016-2017 season in the Scoreboard Cowl!
During the season, there will be weekly prize opportunities for participating knitters, as well as chances for your Local Yarn Shop to win pizza parties and other fun things for those knitting along!
