Join J'Ann, our most incredible knitter, for a KAL (knit-a-long) as we knit The Anker's Sweater together.  Anker's Sweater is a fabulous, popular pattern designed by PetiteKnit

The Anker's Sweater KAL is a FREE opportunity to participate in a virtual social event and to knit a beautiful sweater.  J'Ann will provide tutorials, but formal stitch-by-stitch instruction will not be conducted.  However, don't be discouraged, as you are allowed to ask J'Ann knitting questions. She is a wealth of friendly knowledge.
