This year’s big Fringe and Friends Knitalong is a little different than years past — this time, we’re not using a pattern! The challenge is to knit a top-down sweater from your own imagination or source of inspiration, using my top-down tutorial or any of the other top-down methodologies out there. I can’t wait to see what everyone cooks up! This should be a blast.
I’ll be introducing the Panel for this knitalong the week of August 15th!
Pattern: No published patterns allowed — use my top-down tutorial or any other top-down method you like to improvise a sweater of your own
Hashtag: #fringeandfriendsKAL2016 (use it at Instagram, Ravelry, Twitter, or wherever you post online)
Schedule: Swatch and sketch at your leisure (and share with the hashtag!) but official cast-on date is August 15th
HOW TO PARTICIPATE — AND WIN PRIZES!
There is no sign-up form or initiation rite of any kind — this is a super casual affair. If you want to knit along, just cast on! Post about your sweater on Instagram, a Ravelry project page, Flickr, Twitter, Facebook … wherever you like … as well as in the comments on any of the respective blog posts here.
I’ll be picking a favorite WIP to feature each week, starting August 19th and running through the end of September, and that WIP OF THE WEEK knitter will win a very tasty prize. If you’ve shared somewhere other than Instagram (which I’ll be monitoring the most closely), please leave a link to your photo in a blog comment during the week, just to be safe! What I’ll be looking for is beautiful/funny/interesting/informative pics and captions as well as the sweater and the knitting.
