Welcome to the Knit Collage 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!

About the pattern:

The Dream Weaver Pillow is a great project to learn how to knit entrelac as well as create a decorative piece for any room. One side of the pillow is worked in an entrelac pattern while the other side is worked in a simple garter stitch. Tassels adorn each corner of this design to add a little extra flair. This design is ideal for folks wanting to dip their toe into the KAL but will take less time to knit up than many of the other sweater designs.

In the video tutorials, Amy will guide you through every step of how to make the beautiful pillow 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 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!

~ 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.

~ Weekly celebrity knitter pep talks! This is one of the best parts….let’s stay motivated!

~ Mindfulness - restorative yoga classes with incredible Boston area teachers, guided meditations by me and blog posts to inspire.

The kits will be available for ONE WEEK only. You’ll be able to purchase them from April 14th through the 21st.

We are happy to help you with a custom order but it must be placed over the phone to ensure you get the colors you would like. If you send an email request, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate your request in time before the order is shipped.

Give us a call to make this happen.
