Our Kora Club is more than a yarn club
It’s a way for us to give you a taste of our love for Tibetan Culture and its people, a way for you to join our path, to walk together and help in our effort to support Tibetan communities. But we are also an Italian brand so we had to bring something Italian into the Club, a special surprise for each club crafted with love in our home country.
What does the club include and how does it work?
Every other month we will introduce a limited-edition colorway of our Baby Yak Medium (other lines might follow) based on the mood we have created for that month. The mood is inspired by the colors of Tibet, its culture and landscape. There is no automatic renewal so you are not bound to get the bi-monthly club if you don’t like what you see.
Registration is now open for two weeks, unless it sells out before. Your club will ship immediately after the closing day.
The guest designer is Karen Altabef and she has created the gorgeous Coral with the color Acqua Green (see below for more information).
Each club includes:
- Limited colorway skeins: you can choose the basic club with the number of skeins you want (3 to 8).
- The exclusive Coral pattern by Karen Altabef (via Ravelry download code)
- A card with the monthly mood
- In addition, you can select the following add on: “From Italy with love”(click the link to read more). This add on changes for every club and is something special made in Italy. It could be something handmade, special delicacies, something good for your body and soul, or something you could use for your creativity.
Note: Yarn club cannot be substituted for other colors and is non-refundable.
How many skeins you need to knit the scarf?
- 3 skeins but a smaller version can be knit with 2 as well
Coral was inspired by the new Kora club color, Acqua Green, from mYak and a seaside trip to the Canary Islands. The rolling waves of the ocean along with the new club color inspired the movement of the cables in the pattern. It is worked in a half-twisted rib with an 8-stitch cable pattern and a sleeve at one end. It can be worked as a single or double wrapped cowl.
Designer Bio: Karen Altabef
I am a designer, knitting and tatting teacher, and the co-owner of Pick Up every Stitch yarn store in Mount Kisco, NY. I have a BS in business and finance from Binghamton University and I studied design and pattern making for ready to wear garments at Parsons Institute in NYC. I have dabbled in many fiber arts through the years but tatting and knitting have been my strongest pursuits. I began writing my own patterns about 4 years ago and began publishing them soon after for the store as customers kept asking for them to knit for themselves. I love helping my students alter patterns to get the results that they are looking for when knitting a garment for themselves or to gift. When not knitting for myself or for the store, I love to garden and work with my honey bees at home.
