Kaleidoscope Striped Sweater~ Knitalong Kit
Welcome to the Fall 2020 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are 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. 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. So I hope you'll consider joining in!
About the pattern:
The Kaleidoscope Sweater is a celebration of yarn and color. A perfect, basic sweater that is easily customizable to fit your own personal palette. Worked top down seamlessly and in the round, this yoke style sweater has been kitted up here to include a mix of 7 yarns to create a multicolored striped version. Our original sample uses the Stormy Vanilla /Ochre Twist Combo. Get into your creative flow state and add in as many different yarns and colors from your stash as you’d like! This design is perfect for tapping into your creative style.
In the video tutorials, I'll guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Please note you will have to grab an extra skein or use stash to lengthen the body.
