5 Best Lessons Learned from the Roselle Tee KAL

Wow, it has been so amazing to see all of the progress on our eighth KAL (knit-along), the Roselle Tee! I am so excited to see all these finished Roselle Tees being posted across Ravelry and social media, and I am even more thrilled to see you all have learned so much!

For those who have already started (or just joining the fun) and need a little inspiration to get it finished, our Ravelry Group has some stellar finished projects. Scrolling through these gorgeous Roselle Tees will definitely jump start your knitting engines!

One of the best parts about being a teacher is finding out what kinds of takeaways YOU the knitters take away from the experience. I love that these are lessons that you’ll take forward in the rest of your knitting lives.

What are some of the best lessons or skills people learned in the Roselle Tee KAL? Five of our KALers shared they learned.
