Next KAL: Carbeth & Carbeth Cardi Starting SOON!!

Get your yarn and pattern now- KAL to begin Friday Jan 14
Julia is ready to begin our next KAL- The Carbeth. You will love the interesting construction, and the swift gauge. Knit this beauty at 3.5 sts to the inch with either a chunky weight yarn, or a DK weight yarn doubled. Either weight of yarn will make fast work of this design. If the cropped look is too short for you… just make it longer. KAL to begin on Friday January 14 on our Facebook Group Page. Join us on line or come to one of Julia’s classes. She teaches at TKE on Mondays.
But now WAIT!!
We are adding the Carbeth Cardigan to this KAL.
We have added the Cardigan option to this KAL by popular demand.
Same great construction- same great yarns.
Julia’s Yarn Choice for The Carbeth
Julia has chosen to use Tosh Sport in the color Sand Dune.
She has 6 hanks, each with 270 yards of Superwash Merino.
The yarn will bloom so nicely when held doubled.
