Welcome to the 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 Harley Sweater is an entrelac sweater knit with 5 of our unique, handspun yarns. It is worked bottom up, both in the round and flat. The entrelac stitch looks trickier than it actually is! We are excited to introduce this stunning technique to you during the Spring KAL.

In the video tutorials, Amy will guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Please make sure to check out the Test Knitters project pages to see the Harley Sweater on a range of beautiful bodies!

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.

~ 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.
