Fall 2019 KAL - The Throwback Cardigan

  • $0.00


When: Sunday’s starting Oct 20 at 1:00.

We’re all casting on together, but you can get organized and work your swatch (you do work a swatch, right?) before so you know if you have the right needle size.

 Who: Everyone is invited to join in the fun.

This is a good opportunity for some social time and also a great way to get some help and support, especially if this is a “stretch” project for you. There’s a list of techniques used below so you can see if this is something you’d like to participate in.

 What do you need:

You’ll need to purchase the pattern if you don’t already have it, yarn and have needles too. Need help getting measured properly, or with picking colours? We can help you with all of that.

 Sizes Available:

There are 7 sizes available ranging from 35” – 59” (89cm – 150cm) finished bust measurement.

 Yarn Requirements:

Worsted weight yarn in 4 colours
Colour A (Main) 980 – 1740yds
Colour B, C, D 150 yds each
