Let's knit a gorgeous scarf together via Zoom!
The dates for the KAL via Zoom are:
The Eyelet Scarf by Rosemary Drysdale is simply stunning and it's made using only 1 ball of Tsubame, a super soft wool/silk blend that is such a joy to work with!
It's knit on size US 8 needles and is available as a kit.
You can also use Ito, another worsted weight big ball with a lot of yardage.
Judy, Gilda and Diane will be on the line. We hope you'll join us!
Oh and yes.... there will be prizes donated by Gilda/Knitting Fever!
April 28 - Done!
April 1 Update: Cast on!
Sonja is using size US 6 needles.
Sonja's tip: don't knit this too tight or it will be hard to pick up stitches. There are plenty of good resources on You Tube for garter tab cast-ons.
Join us for the first ever Malabrigo KAL!

PLEASE NOTE!!! A few pattern modifications have to be made due to the yardage difference between Dos Tierras and the yarn Joji used in her pattern.
It is very important that you do a gauge swatch before starting this project. In order to ensure you do not run out of yarn, you need to obtain a gauge of 17-18 stitches over 4 inches before blocking. Depending on whether you are a loose or tight knitter, the needle size may vary. A size US8 needle might be a good place to start.
You may need to unravel your swatch for your project. We recommend you use the middle color of your shawl for swatching.
Let's knit a slouchy hat together via Zoom!
The Slouchy Hat by Noro is a super fun and super quick knit! The pattern calls for 1 skein of each of 2 colors (2 skeins total) of Kureyon.
Wnat some cool texture? You can try Kanzashi!
The hat is knit using size US 8 needles.
You can snag the pattern here.
Allison, Judy, Gilda (our wonderful Noro rep) and Diane will be there.
Anyone can join and it's FREE! All you need to know how to do is CO, knit, and BO. It's easier if you have your cast on done prior to the virtual meeting.
We'll be raffling off two door prizes on April 16 - Noro yarn (thank you Gilda/Knitting Fever!)! All you need to do is share our Facebook post on the Slouchy hat KAL and you will be entered into our raffle!
We hope to see you!
