Join us on the beach for this weekly Knit Along (KAL) as we knit up Andrea Mowry’s Big Cozy Cardi pattern and soak up the goodness of summer afternoon on the North Shore.
We’ll guide you through the steps to adapt the body of the pattern from sport weight to worsted weight for a faster knit, choose yarn, select a size, pick up stitches to join the collar, etc. We’ll take our time with this comfort knit and you’ll have it ready when cool fall mornings roll around.
July 18th 5-6pm
Troubleshooting. Blocking. Picking up stitches for collar.
August 15th 5-6pm
Final questions. Show and share. Celebrate!J
