Chain Link Shawl Knitalong
A new year and a new knitalong. Ringing in 2017 with a knitalong that starts on January 30.
All are welcome and the knitalong is free to join. However, you must use Artyarns yarn to participate.
I used the Drama Queen Kit in pink. There are 7 colors to choose from and you can find them listed at the shops below.
How to join the knitalong? It is best to do this after you already purchased the yarn and have it in hand. Click “Cast On” on this pattern page, to create your project. Upload the photo of your Artyarns yarn to your project page. (This must be a photo you have taken yourself, not one you have found online.) Please fill out the yarn information, making sure you have 400 or more yards of the DK weight yarn, and 300 or more yards of the Laceweight yarn. Both yarn types are required and they must both be Artyarns yarns. On or about January 30, I will send out Part 1 of the pattern to everyone who has created a project page. When you complete Part 1, post a photo, and I will send out Part 2. There is no deadline to complete the knitalong, just a deadline to post Part 1 photo by March 31. All other parts can be completed at your leisure. If you have purchased the Drama Queen Kit (which is what is shown, and what I recommend), I will automatically upload the complete pattern to the collection of kit patterns sometime in March.
