A Knit-Along (KAL) is when a group of knitters work on the same or similar projects at the same time while learning from and supporting each other.
The Colorwork Accessories KAL cast-on day is February 16th, and we'll have a Facebook LIVE that day where we'll kick things off. The KAL ends on March 19th - you have until midnight ET (give or take) to complete the FO Form.
Please let us know you're participating by signing up for free on this page. Once you are signed up, we will send you your free pattern and a couple of KAL related emails.
To share your project and see others' projects, join our Facebook and/or Ravelry group or on Instagram, use the hashtag #2024TWTColorKAL so we can all find you! You can follow that hashtag as well to see others' work.

You are still welcome to join us if your project doesn't fit these requirements (you bought the yarn elsewhere, your project isn't technically 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.
