Cost:     FREE

Description: Vertical details cut clean lines through bands of garter, worked flat (no purling!). It’s joined neatly down the center (and sleeves) with a simple crocheted slip-stitch edge (quick and easy!) worked after the fact. With interesting construction that hints at saddle shoulders and shaping that creates a seamless version of set-in sleeves, Whiskey & Rye is a top-down almost-seamless sweater that fits like it was made for you (because it was).

Who:   Nora
Description: It is worked from the top down in one piece, so you can make it as short or as long as you prefer. It has raglan sleeves and the construction includes a trick that makes the fronts drape, which give it a very flattering but relaxed look. The body has an incredible A-line shape created by cables that get progressively bigger without losing their rhythm. The pockets are there just for one reason: to make it perfect. Instructions are both charted and written.

MeadowBridge Mystery Knit-a-long by Mindy Wilkes

 

When: Sat, Sept 29, Oct 6, 13, 20, 27 1-3pm

Cost:    $10

Who:    Mindy and other staff

The pattern is a modified crescent-shaped shawl. Each clue has been tech edited and test knit to ensure each clue is correct and complete. Each clue will also have a separate PDF with row by row stitch counts so you can double check and mark off each row as you complete it.

Materials 

You will need 2 colors of fingering weight yarn. You will need 400 yards of color 1 and 300 yards of color 2. Mindy suggests using 1 color of a semisolid/tonal and 1 color of a lightly variegated or speckled yarn. You can also use 2 colors of a semisolid/tonal. You’ll want to choose colors that will not hide any lace/texture.

How It Works 

Purchase the pattern before September 25 and you will receive a PDF with everything you need to know before you cast on. Beginning Tuesday, September 25, each clue will be released as an updated PDF. You will receive an e-mail and a Ravelry message with the link to the update containing the new clue. There will be threads to ask questions and discuss each clue in Mindy’s Ravelry group. There will be a separate thread to show off your progress as well.

 

Pincha Shawl by Pinpilan Wangsai

When: Sunday, October 7 & 21 
           3 - 5 pm
Cost:   $10
Who:   Nora
Materials: 1 skein of a highly variegated fingering yarn. Shop sample knit in Baah Dipped and Dappled, US 5 needles
Description: Pincha comes from the word peacock feather in Sanskrit. It’s one of Pinpilan’s favorite poses in yoga, lifting the body up, balancing on your forearm, your feet reaching for the sky, light as a feather. And in a way this shawl is like that, inspired by the vision of feathers gliding lightly off each other creating a beautiful wrap that swirls around your neck. The shawl is made up of repeating feather motifs. You knit one feather at a time. Each feather slides away from the previous one reaching further and further, building up in to a lovely wing-like shape.

 Chunky Cabled Hat by Kristi Reinhofer

When: Saturday, October 13 & 27
                10 am - 12 pm
Cost: $10
Who: Staff
Materials: 1 skein of chunky yarn (we suggest Rowan Cozy Merino), US 10 16” circular and double pointed needles
Description: This quick knit is a great way to use up a single skein of chunky yarn. After finishing the hat you should have just enough yarn left to make the pom pom. Enjoy!

Cost:  $10
Who:  Nora & Cathy
Materials: Two contrasting colors of fingering weight yarn, 400 yards of a speckled/variegated and 133 yards of a tonal/solid color. We suggest using the Baah yarn kits designed especially for this shawl. 
Description: Sunset BLVD is a classic crescent shaped knit in garter stitch with a few eyelet rows and a 2 color brioche finish. The garment is reversible and can be worn on both sides. The shawl is light, airy, and can be worn during a nice fall day.

 

Argyroneta by Barbara Benson

When: Saturday, November 3 & 17
             1 - 3 pm
Cost:     $10
Who:     Cathy
Materials: 1 skein fingering weight yarn, US 6 needles
Description: By featuring double yarn overs in an offset pattern, Barbara was able to create a pattern that, after the set up, you simply repeat the same two rows over and over again. Because of this feature, should you want to knit this in a different yarn weight, you will simply need to adjust your needle size. 

 

Fruit Gum Stripe Socks by Leah Oakley

             1 - 3 pm
Cost:     $10
Who:     Cathy
Materials: 1 skein of a preferably, self-striping sock yarn, US 1.5-2 sock needles of your choice
Description: This fun pattern is an easy one-row repeat that makes your self-striping yarn appear as a diamond shaped pattern. Fun color play! Easy pattern repeat, fitted sole, staggered diamond heel flap and rounded toe. This pattern is written for any self-patterning or self-striping yarn. The diamond pattern is really a spiral rib that has been around a long time and it just cries to be used with self-striping yarn.
