I am happy and humbled to bring you a special collaboration with thirty designers from around the world.  This fundraising event is brought to you by Cast On Collaborative, an initiative I created which brings artists together for fundraising causes.  

The collaboration I am bringing to you today is called December of Designers and includes many talented designers from the knitting and crocheting community.  Each designer is bringing with them their own unique style and is presenting to you a simple design prepared specifically for this event.  They have each been assigned a different day during the month of December to feature their design and on their assigned day,  a portion of their pattern proceeds will be donated to a suicide prevention organization of their choice.

Check back here each day to find out who the daily designer is and thank you for helping us bring awareness to suicide prevention.

Day One: Canmore Cowl by Tracie Millar

Today begins day one of our December of Designers fundraising event! The featured designer for today is Tracie Millar, the creator of many beautiful designs, including the very popular Coffee Talk Socks and the equally popular Hastings Mitts. 

For the December of Designers collaboration, Tracie has created the Canmore Cowl, a lovely design made by holding fingering weight and mohair together to create a mosaic colorwork pattern. As you can see, the rows of fringes adorning each edge adds just the right touch of whimsical fun!

You can purchase the Canmore Cowl and help raise money for suicide awareness and prevention by clicking on the link below:
