Knit-a-Long: Forest Weave

Join us for our first ever Knit-A-Long (KAL)!  Starting on July 14, we’ll begin knitting Yumiko Alexander’s fabulous Forest Weave sweater.

Our target end date is August 11.  During this time we will dedicate one post a week to share tips and our sweater progress.  We will also open a KAL thread on our Ravelry group where folks can share their progress as well as ask questions.  At the end of the KAL, we encourage you to visit us at the store wearing your finished sweater so we can snap your picture for our gallery.  If you are unable to visit in person, you can always e-mail us a photo of your finished sweater.

So come on in to the store, pick up the pattern, select your yarn and be ready to cast on!   You’ll have a beautiful Forest Weave that will be perfect to wear as we move into San Francisco’s best weather season.

Need help selecting the right yarn?  The staff is always here to assist you.  If you’d like to browse online, we recommend checking out the Pure Linen, Tosh Merino DK, Silky Wool or even Dandelion.  The pattern calls for a DK weight yarn but since it’s knit on a 9, you can also used a drapey worsted weight yarn.  Depending on the look you’re going for, we can help you pick which yarn will be right for you!

 

Happy knitting!
