Strange Brew Knit Along

Join the Fiber Lab for our first ever Knit Along (KAL) and design your own custom yoked sweater using the recipe developed by Tin Can Knits. In most KALs everyone works on the same project, and we will be ... sort of. Strange Brew is available in 25 sizes (from baby through men's 4XL) and provides instructions for three different yarn weights — fingering, DK, and worsted. So while we're all starting at the same place, in the end, everyone will have something customized just for them. 

It's a knitting adventure!

About the Sweater

  • The pattern is available from Tin Can Knits. You can choose the single PDF pattern for $12 or the electronic book that includes 14 patterns plus Strange Brew for $28.
    • I recommend the ebook because of the number of patterns and motifs it provides.
  • Work from the bottom up or top down — you get to choose! Either way, the sweater is seamless so there will be minimal finishing.
  • There are several yoke design options and they can be used anywhere on the sweater, not just the yoke.

About the KAL

This is not a class, instead, it's an opportunity for us all to knit a sweater together. Go your own pace — fast or slow — it isn't a race. I will be available to answer questions along the way, but there will not be specific instructions like you would find in a traditional class.

We will meet at lunchtime (11:30 - 12:30) every week, but will be alternating between in-person and online using Microsoft Teams. Join us as often as you are able and however you feel comfortable. The KAL is FREE, however you still need to register so that I can send you the Microsoft Teams meeting link and any other information you may need to get logged in. Don't worry if you don't have Teams installed on your computer, you can access the meeting using a web browser.
