Well, hello cowboy! Fancy a hand of five card stud? Inspired by Wild Bill Hickok’s last poker hand of Aces and Eights, our Mr January, Rhys, is wearing a classic red cowboy bandana. Just the thing to wipe the sweat from his brow after a hard day on the dusty trail.

Yardage: (approximate)
Colour A (The Mad Blood Stirreth) 546 yards/500 metres
Colour B (Pencarrow) 80 yards/74 metres
Colour C (The Dark Side) 45 yards/42 metres

The colour work section of this shawl is charted only (due to the fact that there is not much room for printing on a calendar!). The colour work is very simple though and only uses 2 colours on each row. If you are having trouble with the charts please join us over at the Men in Knitwear Group and we’ll be happy to help you through it!

Men In Knitwear Calendar Club is Stitch Seekers production. A calendar of, well… men in knitwear, but wait, there’s more! Each month also contains the knitting pattern for the knitwear pieces our lovely models will be sporting, it’s a win-win! Subscribe to the MIK calendar and enjoy a new man in your inbox at the start of every month. That’s 12 small to medium sized projects on a larger than life man + the bonus cover design; a total of 13 super cool knitting patterns brought to life by our handsome models. We don’t want to distract you from the knitwear so the models won’t be wearing loads of other clothes. You’ll never forget an appointment again!
