This KAL will meet at our shop, EWE Fibers, in Charlottesville, Virginia. It is not available online.
Mondays 6-8PM: April 22, 29, May 6, 13, & 20
Join us for our annual linen knit-along! Scheduled right at the beginning of the summer, this KAL is a great opportunity for first-time linen knitters to get help and support. For returning and experienced linen knitters, the KAL is a chance to familiarize yourself with the season's hottest (pun intended) patterns!
We carry two linen yarns, both from Quince & Co.: Sparrow, which is a fingering weight, and Kestrel, which is an aran weight. You may also choose to knit with some cotton yarn if you prefer.
You can knit any pattern you want, so long as it's in linen! We have put together a collection of some of our favorite linen patterns on Ravelry here. Not sure what to knit? Come on Monday and we will find a great project.
How does the KAL work?
KAL stands for knit along. In a KAL knitters typically knit the same or similar project. During the KAL, knitters get support to help navigate any tricky parts, learn a new skill, or trouble shoot along the way. The format is informal, so it is possible to join in at any time and it is not necessary to attend every knitting session.
The KAL is not a class but there will be an instructor (and other experienced knitters) at each session to answer questions, or help with any issues that crop up. We also have a lot of fun and the meetings are quite social.
There is no cost to participate in the KAL, but we do ask that you knit a project consistent with the KAL theme and purchase your pattern and yarn from us. We stock a good supply of yarns for almost any pattern you choose.
Get 10% off your KAL purchase, including yarn and needles. *Not to be combined with any other offers.
You do not need to come each week, and you can start your project at any point during the KAL. If you can't make it on Tuesday evening, you can come knit your project at our weekly Makers Circle.
If you want to participate in the KAL please add it to your cart and check out (there is no charge). This helps us keep track of how many knitters to expect.
