Spring 2021 KAL ~ The Design Winners!
Hello friends! I'm so excited to share the spring knitalong design winners with you today - chosen by you by popular vote! Our knitalong is slated to begin just about two weeks time. So without further ado - here are the winners AND the THREE BONUS patterns you'll get when you sign up. Next week I'll kick off my intro video series where you'll get to learn more about our knitalongs and what sets this one apart....and I've got a few new things up my sleeve too! I'd love to hear what style you plan on making in the comments below and of course if you have any questions. Keep in mind that all you really need to know to join in is the knit and purl stitches. We will teach you the rest in our online classes that are yours forever! All sweaters will fit a large size range from 34" to 70" bust sizes. To be the first to know the details, sign up here.
Style #1 (with the most votes!) The Kaleidoscope Embroidered by Laurel Gervitz
Ok, this surprised me so much because we've done this sweater before in different ways but I love that you're into it. This sweater is ideal for beginner knitters who want to tackle their first sweater ever....but it's also great if you're up for learning a new technique - how to embroider on your knitting.
Style #2 ~ The Harley Sweater by Julie Robinson
Alrighty, let's tackle the entrelac technique together! It looks harder than it is and the end result is so incredibly worth it. We'll offer two options of this sweater, a 5 color option and a 3 color option (both shown below). I'm so excited about this one! Keep in mind, my videos will guide you through exactly how to knit this sweater.
Style #3 ~ The Love Letter Cardi by Laurel Gervitz
This style is all about the details from the fitted waist shaping to the scalloped neck edge. You'll make it your own by choosing how you want to stripe in your contrast Wildflower yarns in the sleeves.
Style #4 ~ The Dream Weaver Pillow by Laurel Gervitz
Want to try entrelac but an entire sweater seems a little daunting? Then trying just a pillow might be the answer. One side of this pillow design is knit in the entrelac technique, while the other is a simple garter stitch stripe. Add the tassels for maximum fun!
AND THE BONUS PATTERNS!
So these are patterns you get when you sign up for the KAL. We will have kits available for these styles too.
Bonus #1 ~ Flower Power Cardi by Cheryl Kubat
Even though we knit this style as part of the Fall KAL, it got a lot of votes. So we're doing it again! Learn and crush intarsia knitting with this insanely happy design.
Bonus #2 - The Gumdrop Sweater by Anne Keith
This top down, raglan style is a simple sweater design in our newest (and most lightweight) Serenity yarn. The pattern comes with two neck options and features a fun striped border using our cotton Wildflower yarn that is yours to customize as you like.
Bonus #3 ~ The High Fives Cardi by Laurel Gervitz
This one just made it in! I love the bohemian twist on a traditional argyle pattern plus the open lace sleeves. In this style you'll learn colorwork and charted lace knitting, if either of those techniques are new to you.
Ok I think that is it!!! I'm so excited to share more about our upcoming knitalong next week in a three part video series. Stay tuned. To be the first to know the details, sign up here.
P.S. If the style you loved didn't make it in, it will be released too, later this summer.
