Join J'Ann, our most incredible knitter, a KAL (knit-a-long) as we knit The Weekender together.  The Weekender is a fabulous, popular pattern designed by Andrea Mowry. 

The Weekender KAL is FREE opportunity for you to participate in and a social event where you can gather together virtually on Zoom and knit a beautiful sweater.  J'Ann will provide tutorials on getting started with a tubular cast on, binding off, slipping stitches, ribbing, working inside out, picking up stitches, working short rows and how to perform three-needle bind offs. Formal stitch by stitch instruction will not be conducted. But, don't be discouraged, as you are allowed to ask any knitting questions to J'Ann. She is a wealth of friendly knowledge.

The group will meet via Zoom at 5pm Mountain Time on the following dates:

Meeting Dates:  Mondays, September 28th, October 12th, October 26th, and November 9th.

Designer Andrea Mowry says: "This drop shoulder sweater is my most favorite addition to my handmade wardrobe!  I combined my favorite attributes - texture, faux seams, drop shoulder, and some positive ease to create this versatile, flattering sweater! No matter your body type, it is perfect for wearing to the office or out on your weekend hike in the woods. I’ve already knit a second version, leaving off the sleeves so I can wear it in warmer weather or layered over a long sleeve tee!"
