Dreamy Cardi ~ Knitalong Kit
Welcome to the Fall 2021 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are a wonderful way to learn and grow in new ways. We accomplish that through learning knitting skills, accountability (to stick to your knitting goal!), round the clock knitting support and connection with other like-minded makers. So we hope you'll consider joining in. Watch the videos below to learn what sets them apart!
About the pattern:
The Dreamy Cardi is all about highlighting our most unique yarn, Dreamland. As you knit Dreamland, little flower appliques, ribbons, sparkles and fun trims pop up to meet you! All of this goodness is handspun right into this unique art yarn. Design-wise, this cardi is a seamless style worked flat from the top down. The stitches and techniques are simple, making this design ideal for beginner or first time sweater knitters or really anyone who wants to knit with this happy yarn.

~ Just for you - These patterns will be available to those that sign up for our KAL for 6 months. You will have access to all 4 patterns and video tutorial content forever through Teachable.
~ Round the clock help - Myself and the Knit Collage team are here to help you make your project a total success! Zoom help sessions with knitting teachers are for you when you need it.
~ Bonuses (!!!) - This time around we are offering a whole bunch of bonus patterns: the Dreamy Cardi, the original Kaleidoscope Cardi, the Kaleidoscope Sweater and the Kaleidoscope Pet Sweater, plus a discount to purchase yarn for any future project at 20% off.
