I am happy to introduce a new adventure to you knitters! This adventure will allow us to explore a variety of topics: colorwork, choosing your colours, selecting your size, seamless raglan construction, steeking…We will knit the beautiful Pascal Cardigan released by the famous american knitting company Brooklyn Tweed. This cardigan can be knitted for women or men and can be a great christmas gift!

Brooklyn Tweed is famous for their great designs but also for the quality of their patterns. It is a great school to learn some new techniques, which could look very complicated. But the way they write and describe their patterns makes the knitter’s life easy and the result always looks awesome!

Come and join us during this Knit Along (KAL). Here is the schedule

2-8 september: choosing your yarn, your colours and your size. You can pre-order the Brooklyn Tween Quarry Yarn here until 8 September. Delivery time expected is around 2 weeks.

15 september: a guide through the construction notes of the cardigan

22 september: how to do the “long tail cast on”

I do realise that some of you may have a busier schedule that others and it is most likely not everyone will be able to stick to these deadlines. Do not worry, you will be able to find a lot of resources on this blog. I will post every week pictures, videos, explanations. You will also be able to join a private group to exchange between yourselves, ask questions etc.

During this KAL do not hesitate to tag #brooklyntweedKAL, #littlemaille on your social media posts!

I am so looking forward to sharing this KAL with you!

Stay tuned!

Julie
