Dark Sky Neckwarmer Kit

Dark Sky Neckwarmer Kit


A knitter friend of ours, who lives in Northern Minnesota, thought it was appropriate to have a knitting project commemorating the designation of the Boundary Water Canoe Area (BWCA) as an International Dark Sky Sanctuary! 🌑


Not being a designer herself, per se, she reached out to a favorite Swiss designer, Marianne Niemack; AKA Runningyarn, with the idea. A knitting collaboration was born and the result is the beautiful “Dark Sky Neckwarmer”; a perfect piece to wear when stargazing on a chilly evening in the BWCA.


We have put together three colorways for kits: Plum, Blue, and Pine. Plum and Blue are a combination of Berroco Ultra Wool and Malabrigo Rios which are both superwash. Pine is Malabrigo Rios and Cascade 220 (one of our favorite 100% wools)


Each Kit contains

two skeins of yarn and the pattern.
