It Takes a Vail Valley - On The Mountain Cowl Kit


We’ve teamed up with the It Takes a Vail Valley initiative to create a knitting kit in Vail’s most beautiful, iconic on-the-mountain colors! 

With each purchase of this On The Mountain cowl kit, Maker+Stitch will donate $11 to The Community Market, a local food bank. So this is a feel-good knit times three:  it helps you create thereby relieving stress during this strange time; it helps locals who have lost businesses, jobs, and work income due to Covid; and you are helping our local business survive too. Thank you!

It Takes A Vail Valley is a coalition of local businesses that encourages shoppers to spend their dollars locally while supporting the community’s most vulnerable residents with donations to The Community Market. 

The Community Market has seen an exponential rise in demand since March, as it operates like a grocery store for food insecure locals in our Eagle County, with outlets in Gypsum and Edwards. 

Our kit includes a pattern for the On The Mountain cowl and four 1/2 skeins of Road to China Light in colors that match either our summer wildflowers blooming on Vail Mountain or our aspen groves in their fall golden glory. Pattern is now only available with purchase of kit.

This mosaic knit is suitable for advanced beginner to intermediate knitters. It is knit in the round with knit, purl, and slip stitches. You will hold one color for two rows, then another color for the next two rows, and so on. Calls for US 4 16" circular needles (not included).

Thank you so much for your support of The Community Market, the It Takes a Vail Valley initiative, and Maker+Stitch.
