Knit & Crochet Alongs
Also, there will be a Knit Along beginning in March and a Mystery Crochet Along beginning in August. They will need to sign up through the website to participate. There is no cost to participate but if they buy their products at Fleeces To Pieces, they will get 10% off on their yarn & pattern for the project only if they sign up through the website or at the store. We will use a group in www.Ravelry.com to share our progress.
2019 Knit Along
All participants will begin at the same time. They will be given details on the pattern, yarn and needles they need for the project.
“I was chatting with a customer about finding a project for our 2019 Winter Knit Along. When she left, I went out to Ravelry to find something that might be appropriate for the knit along that could use some of the warmer yarns that I have here at the shop. Immediately a free pattern matching the criteria that I selected popped up called “Audrey’s Coat”! It was like magical music went off because I loved the pictures. I printed it off and love the pattern even more!
This is a top down coat with pockets and a pleat in the back which will allow you to button up and still have plenty of room to move. The yarn is bulky weight, but There is a really nice diagram at the end of the pattern that shows you the lengths and circumferences of the body and sleeves, so you can easily make adjustments to fit your body. In general it appears to be a very straight forward pattern, but there are a couple of techniques that might be new to some knitters.
I do hope you decide to join in this winter fun! The 2019 Winter Knit Along will “formally” begin Thursday, January 17th. No purchase necessary to participate, but if you purchase your yarn for this project from me by the start of the Knit Along, you will get 10% off!
I have several yarn options available at the store including a beautiful new yarn that just arrived, Berroco Mercado. Each skein is 164 yards of #5 bulky 100% Highland Wool. Come check it out and reserve yours today!!!”
Mystery Crochet Along
Each participant will receive a new clue every other week. The project will be a crocheted tote, but participants will not see the design until they complete their project. They will be given details on the type of yarn and needles they need for the project.
