KH April Knit-Along (KAL) or Crochet-Along (CAL)
 
Now that our "April Fools" KAL is over, we can get our REAL April knit-along going. :wink:

We're making HEADBANDS, HAIRBOWS, SCRUNCHIES, and other hair accessories. :knitting:

Headbands can be sporty or stylish.

And hairbows are definitely "girlie".

I think this knit-along will be fun, because the projects will be quick, and can be used by males and females alike!

I'm even thinking of trying out some crochet patterns, because I haven't done that in a LONG time.

Here are some ideas for knitting patterns:

So, look for your favorite knitting or crochet pattern, and let's get knitting! :thumbsup:

This is unfortunately only on Ravelry, but it's a 'double knit' headband. I've been wanting to try it for ages so hopefully I can get to it this month! Woo!:yay:

Nice! :heart:

Maybe I should try a new knitting technique this month. I started a Fair-Isle headband at a class at SAFF* last year, and STILL haven't finished it! :teehee:

Double knitting is another thing I haven't tried. :think:

These small projects will be PERFECT for trying new things!
:woohoo:

LOL, that's too funny. I hope I can make the KA/CA this month, I'm always dropping out but been dying to make a headband!

I think I'm going to join. I found several patterns that I'd like to try. Just need to weed through them and figure out what one I want to do.

I'd like to do one that incorporates a new to me technique. I'm thinking lace or entelac. I've seen several with cables as well. I did a bib once with a basic cable on it, but that was it. If they go quick enough then I may be able to do more than one and try them all!:)

I still can't believe I fell for the April Fool cap - silly silly girl. Since I can't 'get my feet wet' making waterproof socks with Sandy's yarn, I think I'll do this headband instead:

It will be a good one for me because I've only done a couple of cable swatches in my knitting class, but not an actual item, and I've never knitted from a chart. Plus, the pattern recommends bamboo yarn which I've been admiring at HL but had nothing to make with it. And it will be fun because I haven't done a KAL before, and wouldn't probably be doing this one if I hadn't been 'bamboozled' by the waterproof yarn - doh!

:thumbsup: I feel the same way. I want to make a few of them in different colors. I also want to make some scrunchies. Those are SO easy!

Well, I'm GLAD you were bamboozled, so you can join us!

Thanks Sandy! I'm glad to be joining too! It will be fun to work on something with all of you, and to learn some new things....:cheering:

I printed my chart and bought my yarn today. :) I forgot to check what size needles I'm going to need - hopefully I'll already have the right ones.
