This KAL is over! If you’re interested in purchasing this course, please click here. Otherwise, stay tuned for the next KAL!
If you voted for your favorite hat, you’re already on the email list. Otherwise, you HAVE to sign up here to participate. I’m NOT going to post daily updates here on the blog – they will be emailed each morning over the course of 7 days, starting September 28, 2015.
So each day you’ll get an email from me letting you know which section of the pattern we’ll be completing that day. You’ll get these instructions in both written and video form. Additionally, I’ll have tutorials in the videos for those who are interested each day. If you follow along with me, you’ll have a finished hat at the end of 7 days. If you get behind, you’ll have an additional 7 days to catch up via the videos. After 14 days, I’m taking the videos down and listing them as video course here on my website.
The video course is available! Click here for more details and to purchase.
I know questions sometimes come up, and I know sometimes you just really want to share what you’re working on (I don’t know why family members and significant others don’t always care about your knitting – what we do is amazing!) so I have options for you:
1. A facebook group specifically for those who are in the KAL. It’s a closed group so only people in there can see your pictures and questions so feel free to share and ask away! I’ll be in the group frequently answering questions and giving encouragement. Join here.
2. I have a general #weallknithere hashtag, but I created #wakhkal specifically for this project. I’ll be checking both instagram and twitter for projects.
A few people mentioned in the survey that they were totally new to knitting. Go grab your supplies, check out my videos here, and spend the next week practicing casting on stitches and knit stitches. I’ll go slow in the tutorial, but it helps a lot to have a grasp of the basics before you begin learning other skills.
Let me know if you have any other questions! And don’t forget to sign up to be on the email list if you want to participate – again, this is a special email list and you have to sign up here. I’m not posting daily updates here on the blog. Email only.
As usual, all this information is in video form:
