Kaleidoscope 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 Kaleidoscope Cardi is a celebration of yarn and color! Let your inner creative shine as you experiment and go with the flow with color and yarn placement. This style is a seamless, yoke-style cardigan, worked flat, from the top down entirely in stockinette stitch using one color or a mix of colors/yarns. It has a straight body and choice of ¾ or full-length sleeves with a crochet edging to finish off all of the edges.

~ 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 also here for you when you need it.
