What is a KAL?

A KAL—short for knit-along—is a group activity, where hundreds of knitters are working the same pattern at the same time. It is a great way to work a pattern with the support of hundreds of knitters, and I’m there to guide you every step of the way!

Several times a year I run knit-alongs through my Ravelry group. Make sure to join the group to be able to get the most out of your KAL experience.

When you join one of my KALs you will get a full sweater class for just the price of a pattern. You will get hours of video tutorials that are exclusive to the KAL participants and never expire and you get a chance to win PRIZES!!

FAQ – Frequently Asked Questions

How Does It Work?
Every week or so a new pattern “clue” (meaning section of the pattern) will be released.

Each time a new pattern clue is released, it will come to you as an email that the pattern has been updated. The pattern will grow (so the part 2 release will have part 1 & 2, part 3 will have 1, 2, 3 etc.).

Please view the pattern ONLINE to view the videos. The PDFs have pattern links in red that will take you to private YouTube videos or Blog posts.

HOW DOES PURCHASING A KAL FROM PATTYLYONS.COM WORK?
Purchasing from my webstore is a great way to help support your hard working designer / teacher. There are great advantages to having your own account with all your purchases stored in one place.

WHERE DO I ORDER MY YARN AND SUPPLIES?
You can get everything you need for the KAL from WEBS. Each KAL will have its own landing page for ordering. Thank you for ordering only from my official KAL ordering link. It helps make these full video sweater classes possible at such a low price.
HOW MUCH YARN SHOULD I ORDER?
To make sure you have enough for swatching and altering (adding length to body or sleeves) if you get 2 extra balls you should be more than fine.

REMEMBER: all unused yarn is returnable, when purchasing from the suggested retailer!

HOW DO I GET MORE INFORMATION?
