Who doesn’t love working on a cozy sweater during the fall? As the weather turns colder, your project grows into a small lap blanket making it a treat to work on in process and to enjoy once complete! In the Cozy Sweater KAL we are going to create just this type of a treat taking on simple shapes in lovely, worsted weight yarns that will quickly knit into a favorite sweater come winter time.
This fall we are doing something a little different with our Knit Along and offering two different KAL pattern options under the overall title of Cozy Sweater KAL. The first sweater is a womens relaxed-fit, wrap sweater entitled The Curve, by Annie Rowden. A simple shape that can easily be worn fastened or open, this sweater is set apart with a textured stitch along a broken rib to add interest at the edge.
The second pattern is a mens pattern called Brownstone by Jared Flood. It is a raglan sweater worked from the bottom up and divided for the sleeves. The shawl collar is picked up in the round after the yoke is completed and shaped with short rows so there is plenty of opportunity for determining fit as you go.
We will be starting October 1st and working through December 31st. If you would like to join in an online discussion about your projects, join us over on Ravelry at our group page (found here), we will have updates of our own work as well.
We have compiled a great list of yarn ideas that will work up beautifully in both The Curve and Brownstone from the likes of Swans Island, Neighborhood Fiber Company, Cascade and Berroco. Please be sure to ask if you are looking for ideas! Yarn for KAL projects will be 20% off through the first week of October. For the AGY Fall KAL, you can also use stash yarn to participate and all finished projects will be eligible for drawings for prizes. To be eligible for the giveaways, your finished sweater must be posted to the Cozy Sweater Finished Object thread on our AGY Ravelry Group (found here) by midnight on December 31st! What a way to ring in 2015--in your gorgeous new sweater! If you are in town on the weekends, come join us for the Cozy Sweater Knit Along from 3-5pm on Saturdays in the shop. Otherwise be sure to join us online!
