Once again, it is our pleasure to work with Patty Lyons on her latest Costa Maya KAL! Just like her past KALs, Patty's winter project is more like an online class with how-to's and videos for the price of a pattern!

The KAL starts on February 26th and runs through the end of April.

You will need a supply of Classic Elite's Firefly yarn. The yarn is 75% Viscose / 25% Linen, dyed in soft, shimmery colors, it's soft, drapey and a bit dressy.  Take a look at the sizing below for the number of balls you'll need ... and don't forget the needles!

Registration is easy, simply purchase the pattern along with your yarn! You will be automatically registered for the KAL ... just remember to add the pattern to your Ravelry Library during the download process!

Visit Patty's Ravelry Forum for more information, including prize drawings!

Join the KAL anytime ... the KAL info will stay live on Patty's Ravelry Group forever, and the video tutorials will never expire!

Call or drop a note if we can help!

Keep all your options open ... Buy an extra ball. You will need some yarn to swatch or maybe you are a “tight” knitter? Running out of yarn can be a real pain. Getting more yarn, in your color, with the same dyelot can be impossible! Purchase an “insurance” ball. We're glad to accept returns on full, unused balls of yarn!
