Introducing the Harbor Springs KAL / Sweater Class

This relaxed fit, raglan pullover has stylish details like a split hem, bell sleeve and a traveling mesh stitch pattern that creates the neck shaping and shirt tail hem.

As with all my KALs / sweater classes, the pattern will come with hours of video tutorials, knitting how-tos and gauge modifications.


FAQs

Q: What is a KAL?

A: KAL stands for knit-along! It’s a great way to work through a garment with the support of the designer (me), but more importantly, hundreds of other knitters.

If you are new to KALs, find helpful FAQ on the general info page.

The heart of the KAL is our Ravelry group. There we will have updates, discussions, sharing of pictures, and knitting tips.

Q: How do I register and order supplies?

A: Simply by purchasing the Harbor Spring KAL pattern…

    Oh Patty, what an idiot I am. I signed up for your Harbor Springs KAL. I received a message from you last night saying it’s time to download the pattern and order the yarn. I tried to download but now I can’t find it. Do I need to purchase the pattern again because of my technological stupidity?
