Join the Mithral KAL with Carol Feller

MithralKAL

It’s no secret that we love Carol Feller’s designs. They are clever, stylish, fun to knit and fabulous to wear! Carol has run many wonderful Knit-a-longs over the last few years via her Ravelry group and this autumn she’s embarking on her biggest KAL yet.

It’s for the truly stunning Mithral sweater, and we can’t wait to get started! Even better, we have the garment itself on display in the shop, so don’t be shy – pop in and try it on 🙂


The Knitty Gritty
:

  • We’re offering a 10% discount on the yarn for this project (Fyberspates Cumulus), with every KAL sign up.
  • Yarn Dating guests can sign up on the evening of the event and receive a 15% discount.
  • Members of the KAL will receive a *free* hat pattern from Carol from the 1st September. This pattern uses the same stitch pattern as “Mithral”, which makes it the perfect swatching project.
  • Yarn usage: The design calls for between 6 and 10 balls of Cumulus, depending on size and whether you decide to knit a cowl neck or not.

  • KAL Schedule:

    · 1st September KAL: sign ups begin and swatching can start!

    · 1st October: first KAL clue release.

    · 15th October: clue 2.

    · 5th November: clue 3.

    · 19th November: clue 4.

    · 4th December: Raffle drawing on Ravelry open to everyone who posts a photo of their completed Mithral.

    If you fancy joining in the fun then please post a comment below or get in touch with the shop directly. We’ll be collecting email addresses over the next few weeks and getting in touch with everyone little closer to the KAL launch date.


    A little post update following on from some questions in the comments:

    You can sign up with us at any time from now on, but you won’t receive the “pre-sale” PDF until the 1st of September. This pdf will contain the free hat pattern and information on sizing, materials needed and tension etc for the sweater.

    The yarn discount becomes available as soon as you sign up for the KAL.

    The pattern is purchased through us at a cost of €6.95. We will then provide you with a download code for Ravelry, and once you use the code you will automatically receive the KAL clues as they are released from Carol.

    All shades of Cumulus should be available in the shop in approximately 10 days time.

    Carol says of the pattern:

    “This sweater is knit from the top down with set-in short row sleeves, the gentle a-line body uses a simple lace flowing from below the empire waist which flatters most body shapes. The sweater comes with several different neckline options. Pictured is the cowl neck option but instructions will also be given for a rounded or a scooped neckline.”

      I’m not in Ireland so cannot visit the store to see the full sweater. Can you please describe it briefly beyond the cowl or no-cowl neck? Is it a cardigan, a pullover, a tunic, a wrap? Thank you!

      i’d like to join the mithral kal, please include me. would love to, but don’t have the opportunity to visit your shop.

    5. Of course Elizabeth. The sweater is pictured at the start of our blog post, but you can see another image of it being modelled by staff member Jenny today here.

      Carol’s own description of the project is this:

      This sweater is knit from the top down with set-in short row sleeves, the gentle a-line body uses a simple lace flowing from below the empire waist which flatters most body shapes. The sweater comes with several different neckline options. Pictured is the cowl neck option but instructions will also be given for a rounded or a scooped neckline.
