Join us for our Summer KAL!

Chicane KAL

We’ve had some bright, fresh days of late and the stretch in evening is bringing thoughts of sweeping away cobwebs and starting new things! So we figured it’s time for a new Knit-a-Long, and that we should go all out and aim for a light and breezy summer garment in anticipation of the long lazy days of summer to come… We can dream anyway, right?

We went on the hunt for the perfect summer pattern, something lightweight and stylish, fun to knit and versatile to wear – and we think “Chicane” fits the bill. Knit in Juniper Moon Zooey, a perfect blend of cotton and linen, Chicane will take you from the beach to the park, from casual coffee to nights out with friends. Choose bold shades or go nautical, make a statement or remain coolly neutral… there’s something here for everyone.

How the KAL works:

  • You will receive 10% off the yarn with the code SKAL15 until start date of 10 April.
  • Specific techniques will be covered by tutorials on this blog, potential modifcations will be discussed and general support (both technical and moral!) will be offered all along the way.
  • We will be scheduling knitting assistance sessions at the shop for any specific technique challenges that come up and we’re always happy to lend a hand during quieter times in store.
  • Virtually round-the-clock help will be on hand via the dedicated thread in our TIK Ravelry group.
  • Everyone who has finished their garment by Sunday 7th of June will be entered in to a prize draw to win another project’s worth of yarn!

      I would love to join the summer KAL. Do I have to pay to join it?

      Please send me all the information!

      Thanks

      I’d love to join the KAL. Just wondered if this is knitted in the round? It looks like it is, which would suit me as I’m not a fan of having to sew pieces together…

    3. Hi Terri – the pattern is knit in two pieces, from the neck down. So there will be a bit of seaming to do, but not *too* much. You could certainly knit both pieces to the end of the sleeve shaping and then join to knit the main body in the round to avoid some of the seaming at least. We’ll be discussing lots of modification options over the coming weeks anyway 🙂

    4. Brilliant Susan! Glad to have you on board. Keep an eye out for updates here and on the Ravelry thread before the cast on date of 10th April.

    5. Hi Ruth,

      That’s great! Glad to have you with us. All you need to do ahead of the start date is gather your supplies and keep an eye on this blog and the Ravelry thread for updates.

    6. Hi Varinia,

      Delighted to have you along! There’s no charge for the KAL – we just love getting a lot of knitters together to share in the making of a pretty garment 🙂

      Right now all you need to do is gather your supplies (don’t forget the 10% yarn discount code above) and we’ll post more information here ahead of the start date of the 10th of April.

      Looking forward to this. I wish to join top of sweater.
      What happens now when do we get pattern and yarn.
      I will call in

    10. Terri

      Just ordered the yarn – excited! What happens with the pattern – will I have to buy this separately on Ravelry, since I’m an online customer?

    11. Hi Terri, that’s great – the big cast on day isn’t far away now, so we’re getting excited here too! You should be able to buy the pattern direct from Ravelry, but do let us know if you have any trouble.
