Kaleidoscope Sweater Knitalong Kit ~ Mixed Minis
Registration closes tonight, April 21st at 11:59 PT! These patterns and the knitalong will not be available for another 6 months.
Welcome to the Spring 2021 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. So we hope you'll consider joining in!
Watch the videos below to learn what sets them apart!
About the pattern:
The Kaleidoscope Sweater is a celebration of yarn and color! It was a such a beloved style from last Spring's 2020 KAL, we've brought it back again for the Spring 2021 KAL as a bonus pattern and kit. One thing to keep in mind is that my original, photographed here, used around 16 different yarns. In the kits we've put together here, there are just 11 yarns. If you'd like yours to look more like ours, we suggest using the kits as a starting off point and adding in your own stash! The sweater is knit top down, making it easy to customize to a longer length if you like. It is also seamless! In the pattern, we give you the option for a flared or straight body as well as short or long sleeves. The yarn in this kit is for the short sleeve version - grab an extra skein or use stash to make long sleeve!
Here's what you can expect in our knitalong:
~ Exclusive - these patterns will be exclusive to those that sign up for our KAL for 6 months. You will have access to all 5 patterns and video tutorial content forever through teachable.
~ Round the clock help - Amy and the Knit Collage team are here to help you make your project a total success! Zoom help sessions with knitting teachers when you need it.
~ Bonuses (!!!): This time around we are offering a ton of bonus patterns, the Flower Power Cardi, the Gumdrop Sweater, and the High Fives Cardi, plus a discount to purchase yarn for any future project at 20% off (you'll get that at the end of the KAL).
~ Mindfulness - restorative yoga classes with incredible Boston area teachers, blog post and events with celebrity knitters who will share about how knitting helped them find their creative voices.
The kits will be available for ONE WEEK only. You'll be able to purchase them from April 14th through the 21st.
