Saturday Sweater Knitalong Kit
Now Closed. . .
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 Saturday Sweater is a simple, classic silhouette. What makes this one fun and unique is the yarns you'll use! You'll use one main color yarn in super soft Spun Cloud and then stripe in mini skeins from our Mini Skein Sampler Kits. The end result is a mix of color, print and pretty textures. I'll guide you through every step of how to make the sweater from start to finish too.
Here's what you can expect in our knitalong:
