Spring Knitalong ~ Style Details
Hi friends! I’m excited to share more style, color, fit and pricing details for our upcoming knitalong with you today. In the video below I walk you through the yarn and style info for each of the 4 chosen KAL designs as well as what you can expect to learn while knitting them. After the video, I dive into fit, pricing and color details.
Ok, let’s hop to it. Please keep in mind that we have a newish way to pay on my site, called Afterpay. It allows you to pay in 3 interest free increments rather than 100% all at once. There is no extra interest or cost, just an alternative way to pay. I discovered this to be very helpful as a payment method on some of my favorite sites, especially as I think about furnishing a new home and use it all the time! This is available for US residents only at this time.
Please also keep in mind that we will be teaching you everything you need to know to knit your piece from start to finish in the video tutorials as well. If these styles feel complicated, not to worry, we got you! If you stick to my rough schedule, which is totally achievable (big needles help!) you will complete your design in 6 weeks time or less! If these prices seem high to you, I’d like to reiterate that there is so much that comes along with this KAL than just your yarn and a pattern. The tutorials are a labor of love that I have tediously worked away on to make our best, most detailed videos to date. If you're newer to knitting, you'll leave feeling more confident and ready to tackle a more challenging projects and unique yarns. When you buy just one kit, you will have access to all 4 of the patterns and their relevant course videos, plus the bonus Beachy Cardi pattern I decided to throw in just for fun, since so many of you wanted that one!
The Garden Party Sweater
This sweater is a loose fitting cardi knit with our Spun Cloud and 5 different Wildflower yarns in a gorgeous pointelle chevron stripe. It will be offered in a huge range of colors because putting these options together is my most favorite thing ever! More photos and all the colorway options available to view here.
Three Sizes: XS/S (M/L, XL/XXL)
Bust: 36 (42, 56)”/91.5 (106.5, 142)cm
Length: 32 (32, 34)”/81.5, 81.5, 86.5)cm
Fit note: This sweater is intended to have about 4” to 6” of positive ease at the bust. The model is wearing a size M/L and has a 36” bust. I recommend most people knit the M/L size. At an event last weekend, many people tried this one on and it looked fantastic on every single person, all different body types. If you are larger than a 36” bust but prefer less positive ease, I recommend going with the M/L as well. Reach out if you have fit questions!
Sizes XS/S and M/L: $248 (these 2 sizes use the same amount of yarn)
Size XL/XXL: $308
In this beautiful shawl, we mix our Spun Cloud yarn with our brand spanking new Wildflower Mini Skein Sampler Kits. The design is a mix of airy criss cross stitches and stripes in my favorite crescent shape. The sampler kits will be released on the day the knitalong kits go live so you will have first pick and try of these beauties. This shawl is also the fastest to knit if that is something you’d prefer. Style photos and color options here.
Sizes: One size fits all
Length of outer edge (final garter row) = approximately 73”/185cm
Width at middle point = approximately 14”
Fit note: This drapes across the shoulders gracefully. If you like a shawl pin to cinch things together, this would be an ideal style for one of those! I love these ones.
In the Sunwoven Tank, I again collaborated with Erin Barrett of Sunwoven Studios. Her weavings are what set this design into motion. This pattern combines our Spun Cloud yarn, our Wildflower yarn and one of our regular Mini Skein Sampler Kits. I love the open drop stitch back detail and the creativity you have here to play with color and yarn! I had a lot of fun figuring out the different color options for this style and cannot wait for you to take a look. Style photos and color options here.
Three Sizes: XS/S (M/L, XL/XXL)
Bust: 38 (46, 54)”/96.5 (117, 137)cm
Length: 18 (20, 22)”/45.5 (51, 56)cm in length from shoulder
Fit note: This style is intended to have 2”-6” of positive ease. The model is wearing size XS/S and has a bust measurement of 34”. I like this one a little loose as well since tight can get a little toasty in summer. The fit is very easy. It is completely up to you if you want to drop stitches in the back – we do that last so you are free to opt out very easily. The turtleneck is also optional.
XS/S: $138, M/L: $168, XL/XXL: $198
The Floret Cardi is our answer to the more sophisticated among you that prefer not to mix all the yarns together! We just use our Wildflower cotton yarn here which is so much fun to knit with if you’ve never before. This style features a fun macramé edge border that is totally optional – but highly recommended! More style photos and color options to view here.
5 Sizes: Small (Medium, Large, XLarge, XXLarge)
Bust: 38 (42, 46, 50, 54)"/96.5 (106.5, 117, 127, 137)cm
Length: 21 (21.5, 23, 23.5, 25)”/53.5 (54.5, 58.5, 59.5, 61.5)cm
Fit note: This style is slightly more fitted that the other sweaters featured in the knitalong but still very easy and loose fitting. The style is intended to have 2-6” of positive ease. The model is a size 34” bust and is wearing the size Small.
S: $238, M and L: $248 (they both use the same amount of yarn), XL: $258, XXL: $298
That is all she wrote friends! Please reach out with any questions at all. We are able to do custom color kits for you if you like. We are available for any fit, yarn questions too. For all of these styles, just a basic knowledge of knitting is needed: how to knit, purl, cast on and cast off. I so hope you'll consider joining in! The kits go live at 8am on Thursday April 11th EST and will be available for one week only. Then we get knitting :)
Big hugs ~ Amy
