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 Shake Your Groove Thing Poncho is all about getting your groove on in a design that makes you smile! It’s a top down, super easy knit where you get to do you with color and yarn mixing. We also love the asymmetrical rows of tasseled trim adorning this piece. If you a beginner knitter, this might just be the pattern for you. Or if you are looking for a fun and creative way to express yourself through knitting, this poncho has your name on it!

In the video tutorials, I’ll guide you through every step of how to make the sweater from start to finish. Check out our Ravelry page for this style and see the Shake Your Groove Thing Poncho on a range of beautiful bodies!
