Cardigan KAL

Are you interested in participating in a fall-winter SWEATER KNIT-ALONG? The Sweater Knit Along will begin on Monday, September 13th. This is NOT A RACE and this KAL will provide advice, tips, and a sympathetic ear if it all goes horribly wrong and accolades when it goes right! As always, participation at SnB is free, all ages and genders are welcome, and there are no membership requirements.

We'll be making a cute cardigan in sizes S, M, L, XL, and XXL (32-34", 36-38",40-42", 44-46", 48-50")
A suggested yarn is Rowan Lima (9, 9, 10, 11,12 balls)
Lima is a worsted weight with fiber content of alpaca, wool and nylon. It comes in skeins of 109 yds./50g
A "Field Guide to Yarn Substitution" can be found at:
Needles: 1 pair US Size 8 and 1 pair US size 9 needles, stitch holders
Extras: 5 18mm buttons
Gauge: 20 st and 26 rows to 4" using US size 9 needles

Please join our latest KAL if you've never done a sweater before or if you'd just like to try another!
