I’m really excited to share a project that I’ve been working on, secretly, behind the scenes for months!
If you can cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, this sampler MKAL is for you!
Starting on January 1, a new “clue” will be released every second Wednesday through 2014. The Knitting Sampler MKAL will have 27 “clues,” including tips for starting your blanket project, 25 different patterns for 6” (15 cm) blanket squares, and instructions for assembling and finishing a baby blanket or throw.
We will start off with basic knit and purl combinations (to help build your confidence in pattern reading) and move on to stitches that incorporate increasing and decreasing, cables, bobbles, and other techniques. New techniques will be explained with written or photo tutorials and/or links to web resources.
Each stitch will be a mystery, with a picture only shared after the next clue is revealed, so even intermediate knitters can have fun. More experienced knitters can also join in to learn new stitches and share their tips with the group.
Oh, and did I mention the monthly prizes? This MKAL has some great sponsors, including Alchemic Viscera, Cascade Yarns, Erin Lane Bags, Indian Lake Artisans, Michelle’s Assortment, Sarah Kincheloe, The Sexy Knitter, Spazspun, The Spinner’s Emporium, and more.
