PROJECT Keane Wonder

Kelbourne Woolens, Mojave Collection

Keane Wonder

Keane Wonder is a funky summer tank with a sporty racerback, worked in pieces from the bottom up. Short rows shape the hem, and a-line decreases shape the sides of the tank. The colour is fab, and the details are interesting and flattering (if you aren’t sure about the stripe situation feel free to skip over any elements you want).

The Pattern

When shaping the racerback, you will be working increases and decreases on both right side and wrong side rows. Pay attention to the stitch pattern and maintain the pattern as set when working the increases, working purl increases or decreases when necessary. The increases and decreases on the back neck shaping occur simultaneously, but the instructions are written separately due to the differing rate of increases and decreases on each size. Make sure you read through the entire back neck shaping and work both components of the shaping simultaneously.

  • Kelbourne has also included free tutorials for some techniques that newer knitters might be less familiar with (see links below).
  • You can see the rest of the patterns from the Mojave Collection HERE.

The Yarn

Kelbourne Mojave is a super soft and light blend of cotton & linen. It comes in some really beautiful muted colours and also some awesomely bright colours – I’m especially fond of Seafoam Green and Flamingo Pink (it’s really peach). The more neutral colours tend to be nuanced, the type of colour that’s constantly changing based on the light.

NEW Kits & Accessories from Kelbourne

We just received a new order form Kelbourne Woolens and in addition to carrying their beautiful Mojave cotton/linen blend for spring and summer (it deserves it’s own post) we got some really cool accessories and kits too!

Year of Gifts Preorder

Better late than never … last year Kelbourne Woolens had their Year of Hats, and this year they have come out with a super cute series of monthly kits for gift projects you can either keep or give away (see January & February below)! Each kit comes with yarn, a pattern, it’s own cotton project bag (or gift bag), notions, and some other fun stuff. Each month will be a completely different project by a different designer and with a different yarn. Needles are not included. The patterns are all available for $5 and downloaded on Ravelry. Each month’s kit is an absolute surprise, we won’t know what it is until the first of each month.

Preorder your kits and we’ll ship it to you as soon as it arrives, or you can pick it up in store. If you want to send one as a gift to a friend we can do that too!

Year of Gift Kit: January Snowdrop Hat

The Snowdrop Hat by Kate Gagnon Osborn begins with a provisional cast on, then a folded brim is worked in a K2, P2 Ribbing. Once the ribbing is complete, the provisional cast on is unpicked and placed on a spare circular needle and the stitches are joined to created a folded brim.

After the brim is complete, the body of the hat is worked in a graphic stranded colorwork pattern from a chart. The chart is worked 5 times around. Decreases shape the crown, and a pom pom and a cute custom KW tag completes the look.

Kelbourne Let’s Get Kracken Tote bag

These bags are made in USA with 15 oz. black canvas, hand screen-printed design in sparkly gold ink 28″ (71 cm) with black woven handles.
