Welcome to the Fall 2021 Knitalong! Our knitalongs are a 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! Watch the videos below to learn what sets them apart!

About the pattern:

The Kaleidoscope Sweater is a celebration of yarn and color! Let your inner creative shine as you experiment and go with the flow with color and yarn placement. Worked top down seamlessly and in the round, this yoke style sweater has been kitted up here to include a mix of 7 yarns to create a multicolored striped version. Our original sample uses the Stormy Vanilla /Ochre Twist Combo. Get into your creative flow state and add in as many different yarns and colors from your stash as you’d like! This design is perfect for tapping into your creative style.

In the video tutorials, I’ll guide you through every step of how to make this sweater from start to finish. Please note you will have to grab an extra skein or use stash to lengthen the body.

Please check out our Ravelry project page for this style and past iterations of the Kaleidoscope Sweater on a range of beautiful bodies!
