If you follow me on Instagram or on my new YouTube channel, or you’re on my mailing list (sign up here), you may have heard me hinting at starting a knit along for my latest knitting pattern, Wondrella. Well my friends, today is the day!
Over on YouTube, I’ve officially launched the Wondrella knit along today. This video serves as our intro and first knit along post!
If you’re reading this after the knit along has ended, don’t worry—you can catch up with all the KAL posts in the Wondrella YouTube playlist!
In the knit along, I’ll be walking through a lot of the major steps of the pattern along the way, so it’s a great opportunity for less advanced sweater knitters to get some extra help! In our first video I go over selecting your size by looking at all the measurements in the schematic, picking yarn (two yarns are recommended—you carry a laceweight fuzzy yarn and a fingering weight), and swatching for your cardigan.
We’ll also have a Slack workspace dedicated to KAL participants, that’ll be open only for the duration of the knit along (about two months). Chat with fellow knitters (myself included) about your Wondrella projects! ETA: Slack is now closed, as the KAL is finished.
I talk about how to join Slack for the knit along in the intro video. I need your email address to send the invite (and didn’t want people to post it publicly so bots can pick it up!), so here’s how you can contact me:
- fill out the contact form on my web site here, which will give me your email addy
- send me a DM on Ravelry or Instagram, and include your email addy
- email me from the About page on my YouTube channel
What if you’d like to knit Wondrella at some point in the future but can’t join in the KAL right now? No problem! I’ve created a playlist on YouTube that will be home to all our KAL videos, so you can use them as a reference at a later date.
But if you are joining in—now or later—anywhere on social media, please use the hashtags #WondrellaKnitAlong and #WondrellaCardigan when posting!
Meanwhile in other knitting news, I’m about to jump into the test knit with my next sweater pattern… so keep your eyes peeled later this spring for that! 😉
Hope to see some Wondrella knit along participants on YouTube and social media! ❤️
