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
