Join Us for the Flag Wool Sacred Peaks KAL
During the month of June, we invite you to knit along with us during the Flag Wool Sacred Peaks KAL. We may not be able to gather in person this year, but at least we can virtually craft together. The KAL will be hosted on Instagram (@flagwool) and Facebook (flagwool). We've also started a Ravelry discussion board thread for participants to engage with one another and as a way for us to share some of our favorite tutorials and resources for techniques used in this pattern. Grab the pattern and some yarn from one of our fabulous vendors, and get ready to knit along with us!
The Sacred Peaks Cowl, designed by Flag Wool & Fiber Festival Co-Director Sara Bateman, was released in celebration of the festival. As part of the festival’s online event, 100% of the proceeds from this pattern was donated to the Navajo & Hopi Families COVID-19 Relief Fund, raising a total of $1,250.00. 100% of the proceeds from the pattern will continue to be donated, with sales from the month of June to be donated to Chinle Planting Hope.

About the Sacred Peaks Cowl
Rising over 12,000 feet above the Northern Arizona horizon, six volcanic peaks separate earth and sky. The San Francisco Peaks, traditionally known to the Hopi as Nuva’tukya’ovi (The Place of Snow on the Very Top) and to the Navajo as Dook’o’oosłííd (The Summit Which Never Melts), are a sacred place to thirteen tribes. The peaks are the home of ancestral spirits, medicinal herbs, and pure drinking water.
The Sacred Peaks Cowl pays homage to this beautiful and sacred land, from the towering ponderosa pines and quaking aspens that sit on the mountain flanks, to the golden meadows and dramatic night sky that surround them.
