Featuring HiKoo's Simpliworsted Yarn ... 20% Off!

It's not too late! ... Michelle (a.k.a. Knit-Purl-Hunter) has just started her next mystery KAL ... knit a baby sweater, the Adorable Ewe!

This sure-to-be cute sweater is knit in the soft Simpliworsted yarn and is brimming with essential sweater knitting skills.

The Project

Michelle's knit alongs (KALs) are mystery knit alongs. So there are no preliminary photos ... only a general of descriptions of the finished project. But she has told us that the baby sweater has a sheep-theme and will be way too cute to miss! ... checkout the sheep buttons!

The sweater is sized to fit a 6 month old baby and is appropriate for a boy or girl. Pick a boy or girl color ... or a gender neutral color if you are still waiting for the gender reveal!

All of the techniques Michelle uses will be supported by her video tutorials and she answers questions daily on her website and Ravelry group. Michelle's instructions, tutorials and videos have made her KALs extremely popular ... think of her KAL as an online class, worth far more than the price of admission — which is, of course, Free!!

After May 15 the pattern will no longer be free on KnitPurlHunter.com, but will be available for $6 as a Ravlery ePattern.

Afghan Knit-a-Along with Kaffe Fassett

Join Kaffe Fassett's new Afghan Knit-Along ... 

Featuring Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted ... 25% Off

The design team at Rowan has once again teamed up with globally celebrated designer Kaffe Fassett to craft the perfect Knit-Along.  This season, Kaffe has created an amazing colorwork afghan! The last Kaffe Fassett Knit Along was amazingly popular and this KAL will be no different. As always, we're delighted to help you find all the info you need to knit this project and participate in the KAL!

Kaffe started the KAL on Thursday, March 30th ... but there is still time to join the fun!

Kaffe Fassett Afghan KAL

by Kaffe Fassett

Inspired by bold geometric tile designs, Kaffe's afghan design achieves his iconic look without any complicated colorwork.  If you are an intermediate knitter, you will enjoy this project while building colorwork skills!

The afghan has a total of 48 squares knit from 13 unique patterns, plus a border and will be made using intarsia colorwork techniques. The layout of the squares flows around Kaffe's instantly recognizable tumbling block design.  Each square is then placed to achieve the maximum geometric impact.

Did we talk about Kaffe's colorways? ... they are simply amazing! For this KAL, he has crafted only one simple yet effective colorway that captures his distinctive Kaffe signature. But choices are good! We have over 50 colors of Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted ... so if you would like to substitute colors, we have all the project details in the "Materials" section below ...
