Garden Party Sweater Knitalong Kit
Welcome to the Spring 2019 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are a wonderful opportunity 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, connection with other like minded makers AND, most importantly to me, discussions around the topics I talk about on the podcast - mainly why taking time out for ourselves to knit and be creative is so important. Watch the videos below to learn more. In video 3, I dive deep into how making knitting a priority in my life has changed me for the better. That is what is at the core of knitting within a community to me. So I hope you'll consider joining in!Video 1, Video 2 & Video 3.
I'm so excited to announce that this time around we are AGAIN donating a portion of the revenue earned in the KAL to an orphanage in India, near where the yarn is made. Learn all the details in video 3 (link above!).

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.
