This was the cowl project for the Gilmore Girls – A Year in the Life MKAL! I am a huge Gilmore Girls super-fan ever since I originally watched the show in college. When I heard that Netflix was bringing back the show for an all-new season (with the original creator/writers), I was over the moon! I KNEW I had to design something for a MKAL and immediately got to work dreaming up accessories.

What would Lorelai and Rory wear in 2016? Being as stylish as they were, I am guessing they would wear cozy, loopy cowls, and fun accessories with their ever-chic and colorful wardrobe. So that’s exactly what we are making! I’ve tied in some gorgeous fall colors of the northeast, for a little piece of Stars Hollow. I hope you enjoy kitting what I’ve cooked up!

I’ve partnered with Lorajean of Knitted Wit yarns to create a special kit just for this MKAL. The yarn-only kit contains 2 skeins of scrumptious Aran-weight yarn (about 360 yards) in a color inspired by birch trees, and 4 mini skeins in gorgeous fall-leaf colors. The town of Stars Hollow was the inspiration for this color palette with it’s quaint small-town New England charm, and of course the fall foliage.

The pattern support and community for this MKAL will be hosted in it’s very own Ravelry Group! It’s appropriately called “Gilmore Girls MKAL” and you can find it here:

Please feel free to message me with any questions or ask in the MKAL Group linked above and I am happy to help!

I am so excited for this MKAL. It’s going to be a blast as we binge through all 4 episodes of the new Gilmore Girl Season! Where are my super fans at? Will you join me?
