Knit or crochet any Adult Sweater pattern in any weight yarn. The sweater must be knit out of at least 80% of yarn which was purchased from The Woolly Thistle at any point in time. Visit The Woolly Thistle now! To be inclusive and to recognize the work that goes into colorwork vests, we will allow adult-sized color work vests in this KAL. All other wip’s should have sleeves.
Patterns can be any style of adult sweater purchased anywhere, but please thank our generous Designers who are offering discounts and prizes by looking over their patterns if you are in the market for a new-to-you design!
Our official cast on date is August 27th but for this KAL we are also going to allow previously started sweaters which you might already have cast on and have been in hibernation. If working on a previously hibernating sweater, it is best if it is no more than a third of the way started to count. We are trying to be open and just have fun knitting together so use your best judgment and let’s knit! If starting a new project we ask that you not cast on before August 27th and if you will be working on a project that was hibernating or is already started, please wait until the 27th to do any new knitting on it. Swatching is allowed and encouraged before the 27th so that you are ready to cast on with us.
Our official finish date is October 15th which is roughly 7 weeks. To be eligible for prizes your sweater needs to be posted in the FO thread by Midnight on October 15th, EST. Sweaters don’t need to be completely finished to be eligible for prizes but we know you can do it! If your sweater is almost finished, make sure to post a picture in our FO thread so we can include you in prize drawings.
Feel free to double dip if this KAL coordinates with any other sweater KAL you might want to join!
