How does a KAL (stands for Knit-Along) work?
As soon as you purchase your pattern you will get your pattern introduction and videos on sizing, yarn selection and gauge, as well as your schematic and material information, so plenty of time to order your yarn, pick your size and start your swatching.
Since you have SO many options, this KAL will work a bit differently the traditional schedule of “clues”. You will receive the whole pattern at once and people will be joining in all during the KAL.
To keep the fun of us all working together, there will be live help sessions on Zoom in Nov, Dec and Jan, so join us when you’re ready!
