Colorwork Accessories KAL FAQs

Colorwork Accessories KAL FAQs

Thanks for your interest in joining us for our annual Colorwork Accessories Knit-along! Here you'll find answers to some of the common questions about this KAL. We hope this answers everything you're wondering about! If not, feel free to email us at We hope to see you for our upcoming KAL!


1. What are the dates?

Cast-on day is February 17th, and we'll have a Facebook LIVE that day where we'll kick things off. The KAL ends on March 18th - you have until midnight ET (give or take) to post a photo of your finished project to be entered for a prize.


2. How do I join?

Please let us know you're participating by signing up for free on our website here. We'll send a couple KAL related emails leading up to and throughout the KAL.

To share your project, see others, and be eligible for prizes, join our Facebook and/or Ravelry group. If you're not in either of these places, you can submit a photo of your finished project via email to to be entered for a prize.

When sharing on Facebook, Ravelry, or on Instagram, use the hashtag #2023twtcolorkal so we can all find you! You can follow that hashtag as well to see others' work.


3. What qualifies as colorwork?

Your project should be all-over colorwork (not just a section, but most of the piece should be colorwork), and can include stranded (fair isle), mosaic, or intarsia methods.


4. What qualifies as an accessory?

We are focusing on wearable accessories. Accessories include colorwork cowls, socks, hats, scarves, shawls, mitts or mittens.


5. What yarns can I use?

To be eligible for prizes, project should mostly be made with TWT yarns (around 80% or more).


6. What if my project doesn't fit within these requirements?

You are still welcome to join us if your project doesn't fit these requirements (you bought the yarn elsewhere, your project isn't all-over colorwork or an accessory, etc). The point is for everyone to join in, feel welcome, and knit and learn together! However, only qualified finished projects will be considered for the prizes at the end of the KAL.


We look forward to having you join us!!

    I could not resist an overall color work coat for my Sheltie….and purchased all yarn from TWT. Pattern in last month’s The Knitter, #182, Outi Later “Teddy.”
    If this doesn’t fit requirements, I have other projects ready to go. Looking forward to my first KAL!

    Will be knitting the Georgia Tam in Rauma. Can we cast on beforehand?, although I still haven’t finished my Vanilla sweater!
