HK Summer KAL 2019
MAY 5 - JUNE 30
For this KAL, we'd like you to try a light, airy knit. Now is your chance to knit a tank, a tee, a light cardigan, anything summery. You can try a new summer yarn, or a past favourite. We have some really great suggestions on our Ravelry Group page (under 'Bundles'), along with yarn recommendations for each pattern.
You must purchase your yarn for the knit-along within 2 months of the start date, or during the knit-along until the deadline date, in order to qualify for the prize draw. You must purchase a minimum of 800 yards for your project. If your project does not meet the required yardage, you can still join, but you won’t be able to enter the draw.
Please note that this is strictly a social knit-along - there is no instruction provided. If you need extra help with your project during the knit-along, we recommend booking a private lesson ($20/hour).
