Pixelated Cardi Knitalong Kit

Welcome to the Fall 2019 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. That is what is at the core of knitting within a community to me plus a whole lot of community and fun. So I hope you'll consider joining in! Watch the videos below to learn more:
I'm so excited to announce that this time around we are donating a portion of the revenue earned in the KAL to an orphanage in India called Palna House, near where the yarn is made. Learn all the details in video 3).
About the pattern:
The Pixelated Cardi is a simple, yet beautiful colorwork cardigan that is knit up using our super soft Spun Cloud and unique printed Wildflower yarn. This is an ideal pattern for those wanting to try colorwork for the first time. The sweater is knit top down, making it easy to customize to a longer length both in the body and for the sleeves if you like. It is also seamless! In the video tutorials, I'll guide you through every step of how to make the shawl from start to finish.
Here's what you can expect in our knitalong:
