But first, celebrate Taco Tuesday with Phil Ferguson’s crochet taco costume. And all his other hats, too.

Knit A Row For UNHCR

The UN Refugee Agency (UNHCR) has teamed up with Twitter For Good and Kniterate, a digital knitting machine, to raise awareness about the 14 million Syrian and Iraqi refugees and the harsh winters they endure. Over the next five-months, #KnitForRefugees, will raise donations, while showcasing the power of a single tweet. Each time the UNHCR’s informational campaign tweet is retweeted, a Kniterate machine will knit a row in a scarf. All are encouraged to retweet the UNHCR’s tweet through November 20, 2019, and the first 500 users who retweet will have their name knitted into the scarf. The completed scarf will travel around the world to continue raising awareness and necessary funds to keep these people warm, sheltered, and safe.

CAST ON: Satawal by Midori Hirose

The Ranunculus sweater is celebrating summer with new projects popping up all over Ravelry. But if you’ve already knit one (or six) Ranunculuses (or is it Ranunculi?), you can cast on Satawal instead. The new design from Midori Hirose features a lace yoke, dropped shoulders, and a boxy silhouette. Sized from xs-4XL, the short sleeved top is knit with worsted weight yarn, yet fingering weight can be replaced for a more airy and open fabric.
