Kaleidoscope Pet Sweater ~ 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:
Adorn your pup with a Kaleidoscope Sweater! Better yet, knit yourself a matching sweater or cardi and twin away! The Kaleidoscope Pet Sweater is a great beginner sweater and a fun way to learn basic sweater-shaping techniques on a smaller scale. It is also a fast and satisfying project for a more advanced knitter. Worked from the top down, seamlessly in the round in stockinette stitch, this yoke-style sweater is easy to customize while mixing different yarns to create a fun and colorful pet accessory. Sleeveless, with a longer rounded back hem and a shorter hem on the belly, this sweater is incredibly versatile. Make yourself a matching sweater for the cutest pet/parent set around!
* Please note that this kit is for a bonus pattern style, so there will not be a video tutorial accompanying this kit. However, we will be here to help you at every step or stitch :) Tap the link here to check out our Ravelry page for this style and see the Kaleidoscope Dog Sweater on some adorable fur babes!
