March 20 2015 – thisisknit
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 weâ€™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!
Would you like join us? Or do you have any questions? Post a comment below or over on Ravelry and we'll get back to you asap.
Note: The same quantity of yarn is specified in the pattern for all sizes. If you donâ€™t use all 4 balls then we will be happy to exchange or refund the extra yarn.
