Participants are invited to exclusive events to begin and conclude the KAL, as well as loads of help sessions throughout October. You will also receive a custom project bag with goodies. Prize drawings are included at the end of the KAL.
Sign up online, in person, or by calling The Studio at 816-531-4466.
Pick your pattern
Which team will you be on? Look at the models in the store to help you decide.
Choose and purchase your pattern - all except Cindy’s are available on Ravelry. Cindy will provide her pattern free to those who make it during the KAL.
Purchase or order yarn
Three of our models were done in Friday Harbor, a new yarn from Cascade. It’s slightly tweedy - enough to give visual interest, but not enough to inhibit stitch definition. It's a very comfy, soft blend of 80% merino and 20% silk. We all loved working with it.
You have lots of other yarn options, too. Studio staff will be glad to help you choose yarn colors and quantities. Place your yarn order by Sept. 16 to ensure that you're ready to cast on Oct. 1.
Let us help with fit and gauge
We have prepared measurement sheets for each pattern. Once you sign up, we will be glad to help you with your measurements and gauge so you can make a sweater that fits.
Don’t cast on till October!
You can swatch before then to determine what size needles to use, but delay casting on till the start of our KAL on Oct 1.
How does a KAL work?
A knit along (KAL) is a little different than a conventional class. We’re all working toward the same goal: finishing our sweaters by Nov. 1.
Your moderators will explain, demonstrate, and teach pattern techniques. We’ll be available to help and answer your questions during multiple KAL sessions during the month. A KAL is more like a team effort (and a party!) than a class. We will all be supporting and cheering each others’ progress.
Can I sign up after Oct. 1?
The KAL runs from Oct. 1 through Nov. 1. You can sign up at any time before the end of the KAL, but we will officially conclude on Nov. 1.
Do I have to order my yarn through The Studio?
The Studio has lots of beautiful yarn choices in stock and available for order, so you can get the color you want. We will gladly help you choose colors and quantities. If you order by Sept. 16, your yarn will be available before the KAL begins. When you purchase your yarn through The Studio, you help keep the store healthy, but it is not a requirement of the KAL.
What tools and supplies will I need?
Please purchase your pattern and yarn. Patterns include tools and recommended needle sizes. Swatch to be sure you’re using the right size needles.
