Cast on with us January 1 for a super special knit along. This post is filled with all I can tell you for now, but soon, all will be revealed!
A look back at the Funkasonic Knit Along and some of the best snaps of the series!
Why yes, you’re seeing that correctly! That’s TWO new, coordinating patterns from yours truly. I’m kicking off the new year with two patterns I’ve dubbed Funkasonic for their mesmerizing use of stripes! While they’re officially being released in my pattern shop on Friday, January 15, I’ve teamed up with PostStitch and Ewe Ewe Yarns to bring you a super special knit along with these two totally funky patterns this January.
I’m so excited to be partnering with Bijou Basin Ranch on this knit along for my new Delta Hat pattern. With a full rainbow of colors to choose from, I can’t wait to see the many color and button combos people knit Delta Hats in!
I’m hosting AllFreeKnitting‘s first knit along, and I designed a really special lace scarf inspired by the season just for it. Take a look at some pictures of the Spring Meadow Scarf in this post and get excited to cast on this one skein, perfect-for-the-season project!
Surprise! It’s Friday, but due to an almost maniacal attention to detail on today’s post, I’m bumping Picks of the Week to tomorrow to bring you day 5 of the knit along. After the intense excitement level of last week’s arm attachment tutorial, today’s how-to-knit-a-raglan-decrease tutorial and pattern is probably the second most important tutorial of this entire bottom up sweater knitting series/KAL.
It’s sleeve attachment day! Today is the day your sweaters will start looking a LOT like sweaters, people! Despite how long this post is, attaching the sleeves really isn’t all that complicated. I just want to give you guys a thorough overview of the mechanics of how to attach bottom-up sweater sleeves. Since we’re dealing with math, words and photos (and a couple of animated GIFs, because I couldn’t help myself and do think they’re helpful), this post is long, but I think it really will help you understand sweater making! Let’s dive in, shall we?
If you’re working on (or thinking about working on) the Remy Pullover for the fall knit along, the biggest chunk of knitting you’ll need to do is week 1, the body of the sweater. In case you’re just tuning in, you can check out the first week’s post and pattern and learn how to measure and calculate the perfect fit or your pullover. Today I want to share some tips and tricks for improving your knitting technique and, for knitters who might be scared of the cabling, how to knit cables!
