Planet A

PLANET A: VISUALIZE, COMPREHEND & FIGHT CLIMATE CHANGE – BECAUSE THERE IS NO PLANET B!

It’s getting hot in here – but not just that, the weather is getting more and more extreme with climate change progressing. But how much has the climate changed, really?
“Planet A” visualizes how much each month’s temperature differs from the long-time average, showing just how extreme our new normal is.
By turning complex data into a wearable accessory, it can more easily become a talking point and conversation starter and hopefully not only lead to more awareness but individual action and mitigation of the climate crisis.

As opposed to temperature blankets or shawls, the “Planet A” project does not represent the daily weather but the difference from the monthly average temperature to the long-term monthly temperature (over a 30-year period) of a region. This visual representation of climate change hopes to make this complex topic more comprehensive and accessible.

Information on how to access climate data and how to translate it into a color scheme can be found in the separate info document.

#GinnyBandanaCowl

🧶🎁♥️ FOURTEEN ♥️🎁🧶

It’s day 14 of #24DaysOfKnits and also #WIPWednesday – again!

I’ve mostly been working on the computer the last few days, which does not make for very picturesque photos, sadly.

One of the projects I’m working on is finalizing the pattern for the Ginny Bandana Cowl, which will be released on Friday.

I’ve been editing photos yesterday, and today I’m trying to add the charts to the pattern layout. It’s a bit of a struggle, but I’m sure I’ll figure it out soon… 
I have some more projects on the needles, of course, but most of them are somewhat secret and others in awkward stages, so please accept this newly edited photo as my WIP post! 😊

🧶 Pattern: Ginny Bandana Cowl by me (Release date: Dec. 16, 2022)
🧶 Yarn: Big Merino Hug by @rosygreenwool in Edelweiss/Edelweiß (white) and Black Cat/Schwarzer Kater (black)

The GINNY BANDANA COWL keeps you cozy and in style with a classic yet bold Gingham or Buffalo Plaid pattern created by two-color Brioche and Garter stitch.

The cowl comes in two sizes for a narrow fit or loose fit (pictured here) . 

The bandana tip adds a modern twist
and keeps out the wind from your jacket opening.

The pattern makes the most of 2 skeins of Aran weight yarn (I used Big Merino Hug by @rosygreenwool), and knits up quickly on US 7 / 4.5 mm needles.

➡️ The pattern is now available on Ravelry & Payhip!
➡️ Follow the links in my profile/bio to purchase a copy!

I’m totally obsessed with this graphic black & white Brioche Gingham texture! 🥰

The combination of Brioche and Garter stitch creates a textural checkerboard pattern. By using two colors, another dimension is added and the pattern turns into Gingham check or Buffalo plaid. When using four colors, as for the other Ginny cowl, the pattern turns into more of a plaid than check.

And this very graphic pattern is even reversible! Knitting is pretty magical, don’t you think?
