Summer KAL 2021

 
EXTENDED KAL END DATE: July 24th
May 15 - July 24
Yay! Summer is upon us, and we can finally enjoy some fresh air, Vitamin D, and good weather! Let's grab some summer yarns and cast on a top for our Annual Summer Knitalong!

Warmer weather gives us an opportunity to knit (or crochet) with some more unique yarns made with linen, cotton, silk. Summer yarns behave differently than wool yarns - they can be crisper or have more drape, can be knit with a looser gauge, and they tend to work well with a wide range of summer garment patterns. If you prefer the structure of wool, choose a wool/cotton blend like Rosa Pomar Mungo, or BC Garn Bio Balance. 
We’ve set up a Ravelry Bundle to inspire you— it is by no means an exhaustive list of what you can make for this KAL. 
 
KAL REQUIREMENTS
You must purchase your yarn for the knit-along after April 1st, 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. If you finish your project by the deadline date, your name will enter a draw to win a $60 Handknit Yarn Studio Gift Card! (one entry per qualifying finished project)

If you need some inspiration, take a look at our Ravelry Bundle!

HOW TO JOIN
To join our Summer KAL you'll start by choosing a suitable pattern, purchasing your yarn at Handknit Yarn Studio and letting us know you'd like to participate. You can do this via  email, phone, Instagram DM or Facebook Message. Once we hear from you we'll add your name to our official KAL list. On (or before) the final KAL date, July 10th, we ask you to submit your finished project to Handknit Yarn Studio by midnight in order to qualify for the draw.
You can submit your project to us by email, Instagram DM or Facebook Message. If you've been sharing on our Ravelry Forum, please make sure to submit your project  email, Instagram DM or Facebook Message as well.

Bi-weekly Sunday Morning KAL Meetings are currently cancelled due to COVID-19. Instead, please join us on Instagram on scheduled Saturdays at 11am for Knit Cloud!
Knit Cloud is our new regular event to replace our in-person Knit Circle we used to hold in store. During the Colour KAL, please join us on Knit Cloud where we'll host our Summer KAL Meetings as well! We hope you'll want to share the screen with us to show your projects.
