Welcome to the Fall 2018 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are wonderful way to learn and grow in new ways. We do that through learning knitting skills, accountability (to stick to your knitting goal!), round the clock knitting support, connection with other like minded makers AND, most importantly to me, discussions around the topics I talk about on the podcast - mainly why taking time out for ourselves to knit and be creative is so important. Watch the videos below to learn more:

Video 1, Video 2 & Video 3.

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, near where the yarn is made. Learn all the details in video 3 (link above!).

About the pattern:

The Sunwoven Sweater was designed and inspired with the gorgeous work of Erin Barrett in mind. She is an extraordinary weaver. I wanted to create a sweater that had the look of one her weavings, but not the stiffness and bulk. That is how this sweater came to be! There is a lot of yarn mixing, which is my favorite. I love mixing yarns in this way because I think it really elevates the design to wearable art. The silhouette here is easy to wear with everything and surprisingly light and loosely knit because of the big needle size. I’ll teach you exactly how to make this from start to finish!

Here’s what you can expect in our knitalong:

  ~ Exclusive - these patterns will be exclusive to those that sign up for our KAL. The patterns will not be available to everyone until at least a year from now. They are all 4 new patterns and you will have access to all 4 patterns and video tutorial content forever.

 ~ Free Shipping ~ up to $15 for people who decide to join in – anywhere in the world - with the code Fall18KAL at checkout.

 ~ Round the clock help - myself, Jessie and Cheryl from the Knit Collage team are here to help you make your project a total success! 

The kits will be available for ONE WEEK only with the discount and free shipping. You’ll be able to purchase them from Oct 11th through the 18th. The KAL will start the week of Oct 22nd.
