Featuring Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter
We are pleased to announce the next Progressive Needles KAL, sponsored by skacel and hosted once again by Michelle Hunter of Knit Purl Hunter.
First Clue for this KAL goes live on April 6, 2017!
Deadline for Contest entry is May 2017.
Please join me as we knit a baby sweater in my next Knit Along, Adorable Ewe. Knit in the soft and washable Simpliworsted, this project is brimming with essential sweater knitting skills.
My KALs are always a mystery, but I will let you know that this sheep-themed sweater is too cute to miss! Every knitter should have a baby sweater on hand for gift giving. They are also great way to gain sweater experience. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned sweater knitter, this project has something for you.
The sweater is sized to fit a six (6) month old baby and is appropriate for a boy, girl or waiting for the gender reveal. Two hanks of any main color are needed. Additionally, white or natural is a must for the sheep with black for the accents.
The KAL begins April 6th with a portion of the pattern revealed each Thursday in April. Knitters who finish the sweater by May 15th are eligible for the prize drawing sponsored by Skacel.
The KAL is FREE and no registration is required.
Simply go to knitpurlhunter.com anytime after 9 am on April 6th to download the first installment of the pattern.
I answer questions daily on my website and in my Ravelry group.
Prizes are generously provided by our sponsor, skacel Collection.
Keep in touch with others and show off your progress and finished work on Knit Purl Hunter’s Ravelry Group. Michelle can be found there to help with any questions.
