Welcome to the Spring 2020 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. Right now, when the world is in crisis, coming together over knitting sounds like a much needed bright spot. So I hope you’ll consider joining in!

About the pattern:

The Pixelated Cardi is a simple, yet beautiful colorwork cardigan that is knit up using our super soft Spun Cloud and unique printed Wildflower yarn. This is an ideal pattern for those wanting to try colorwork for the first time. The sweater is knit top down, making it easy to customize to a longer length both in the body and for the sleeves if you like. It is also seamless! In the video tutorials, I’ll guide you through every step of how to make the shawl from start to finish.
