Announcing… The Rio Rancho Cardigan Knit-Along!

Spring2016KALmain Each season we host a crochet- or knit-along, a virtual event in which knitters and crocheters come together here online to work on one pattern together, share their experiences, and to learn together. There’s no need to sign up! Simply follow along with the blog posts at your own pace as you knit your project, and feel free to share your comments and/or photos as you progress.

And the pattern is…

We heard you loud and clear: Shawl in a Ball is a must have for your stash, and we’re gearing up for a Knit-Along that really shows off this yarn! Join our host, the always wonderful Kristy Glass, as we make the Rio Rancho Cardigan together!

To get this knit-along going, this week is about gathering your materials so that we can jump right starting on Wednesday, April 27th. Remember, our knit-alongs are designed for you to follow along at your own pace, so don’t fret if you don’t have your yarn just yet!

Starting April 27th, our KAL host Kristy Glass will post her progress through the Rio Rancho Cardigan project, with updates coming every Wednesday. You’ll know it’s a dedicated KAL blog post when you see our special badge in the upper right-hand corner of the post. Don’t forget to join our Ravelry group for this KAL as well!

  • Can you show the back of the Rio Rancho cardigan? Or let me know where it might be posted? Thanks!

  • please help with gauge. This yarn is too fine for me to go up to a size 10 needle, what do you suggest?
