Corcoran KAL Final Project PRIZES
Six weeks ago over 140 knitters cast on for their gauge swatches and began the Corcoran KAL. Over the weeks to follow our ranks more than doubled (and continues to grow every day), and now over 360 knitters received the final clue. Last week I showed off some of the sweaters in progress.
Through 8/15 you can still get the Corcoran KAL files + pattern (all 2 hours of video tutorials, all the sweater modifications and knitting how tos) for only the price of the pattern – $7.00. After 8/15 to get the class version, it will be $12, and the pattern only will be $7.00.
Through it all, the help and support of every knitter on the Ravelry group was always there. Over 1600 questions and answers on our message boards let every first time sweater knitter know . . . they were not alone! Now it’s time to discuss
Corcoran KAL Final PRIZES!!!
Here’s how this works. There will be two more weeks for knitters to finish up their sweaters and post pictures. On Aug. 15th I will announce the final prizes.

I got sidetracked with this KAL and am still only on the back. My daughter got married, my grandson got baptized, my husband needed a heart stent…and other random stuff has been happening. However, I have been collecting all the hints and learning from the tutorials (which, I must admit, I was surprised at how useful they were, given that I’m not a YouTube knitter) and will complete this project, albeit past the “deadline”.
Thank you, Patty, once again for caring enough to share scads of info and tips. I hope the next KAL I might actually be on target for the “deadline”. Not sure if this counts on the “story” aspect of the give away but I am not a hash tagger. If not, it’s ok. Just wanted to share my thoughts with you.
I have made many a sweater over the years but NEVER have I been thrilled with the results. (Once I had to unravel the whole sweater and knit it again…yes swatching is important!!!) The step by step videos Patty created were amazing…the videos were well done and the instructions clear and easy to follow. Patty is THE BEST instructor I have come across and I have see many…the explaining of the why with the how Patty hits it out of the park every time!! I know consider myself a sweater knitter!!!!
Wow! What a wonderful thing to say!
