July is right around the corner, and that's when we're starting the next KAL for fall. The goal is to be done by the end of September. For fall, we're going to do a cardigan (or a wrap or jacket or a vest--whichever your prefer). Save those pullover and poncho patterns for the winter KAL!
I will be making the Lift and Separate from Big Girl Knits.
I'm going to structure this KAL more like the first one, in 2-3 week sessions for each part... left front, right front, back, sleeves, seaming, etc. Again, you can pick whatever pattern and yarn you want to use. Here's some links to get you started:
Knitting Pattern Central's list of Cardigans
(5 pages worth!)
The cardigan list is the 2nd group down
Knitting Pure and Simple: Women cardis
and the lone man's cardi is here
(these are not free, but the patterns are great, I have several)
(look under "type"
The first task will be, as usual, to pick a pattern, get yarn/needles/whatever you need, and knit a gauge swatch. As always, this can be a stash buster too, but you'll have to plan carefully!!!
Let us know what you're going to be knitting as soon as you've figured it out! We will "oficially" begin week one on July 3rd. Beginners, if you're ready to move on to a project that's a bit more challenging, this will be a good project to start. We can help you choose a pattern that will be appropriate for your skill level... and if there's something you're not sure of, just ask! We can point you in the right direction.
Happy Knitting :XX:
