Top-Down Raglan Pullover Knitalong
The KAL Details - please review the details and options below and/or our blog post here, then select your preference from the dropdown menu to add the KAL to your cart to join the fun!
| Pattern | Felix Pullover or Camp Pullover by Amy Christoffers, OR Honey Vodka Lemonade by Thea Colman - all patterns are available for purchase on Ravelry.
| Cast On Date :: Friday, October 27th
| Finish Date :: Friday, December 15th
| Firefly Fibers Supplies | Worsted - Aran weight yarn in quantity for your size of sweater. You're welcome to use any of our shop yarns for our KAL, but we have a few suggestions from our tried and true favorites:
Recommended yarn options...
- Brooklyn Tweed Shelter, Tones or Imbue
- Green Mountain Spinnery Mountain Mohair
- Harrisville Highland (an exciting NEW arrival)
- Julie Asselin Nurtured
- Camp Pullover note... due to a slightly tighter gauge, an additional yarn option for the Camp Pullover is Berroro Lanas (and one that Amy suggests for her design), but we don't recommend this for Felix or Honey Vodka Lemonade because of the looser gauge, but you could use Lanas and just add some mohair.
KAL Included w/project yarn purchase: When you purchase a sweater quantity (or more) of one of our shop yarns for our KAL, just add your preferred Knitalong option to your cart (online or local/online*) and you'll receive an invite to join our group where we'll be hosting the KAL on (or before) Friday, October 20th.
Our discussion space will open a week before our cast on date so we can prep together and share plenty of tips over the 7 weeks of our KAL, and then cheer each other along. We'll also include a suggested timeline for our group, as well as tips for each step of the along the way.
If you've recently purchased a sweater quantity from our shop and would like to knit along with one of our 3 sweater designs, please add your preferred option (online or local/online) to your cart and leave us a note with your order number or approximate date of purchase and we'll get you added!
Happy Sweater Making!
Locals... build your sweater knitting skills: If you want to add to your sweater knitting toolkit, join our Sweater Fit Series on Friday mornings (10:30am-noon) with Lynn Marie to demystify sweater patterns and learn how to customize your sweater for the best fit for your body.
