Our annual Fall Sweater KAL has started!  Knit or crochet a sweater for yourself or another adult.  


Here are the rules:

  1. Dates - 9/1/2023 - 1/15/24. That’s 4 months…plenty of time to knit or crochet an adult-size sweater…or two!
  2. We have bundles for inspiration! Beginner sweaters are here.
  3. Adventurous Beginners to Advanced sweaters are here
  4. Crocheters! Your sweaters are here
  5. ANYONE can add sweaters to the bundles!
  6. There will be prizes - just post a picture of your lovely finished sweater in our FOs thread.
  7. Do you have some sweaters in progress? WIPs count as long as the sweater is less than 50% done on September 1st. Less than 50% done is your call. We don’t have to “approve” your project.
  8. It must be an adult-sized sweater, and it must have sleeves. Short sleeves are fine.
  9. You must be a member of our Ravelry group to win a prize.
