Our first Knit-Along (KAL) in 2014 celebrated the iconic Baby Surprise Jacket and was a huge success. Then in 2015 we took on another iconic pattern: The February Lady Sweater (FLS). In 2016, we celebrate shawls with the classic Multnomah Shawl, one of the most popular patterns in Ravelry with almost 10,000 member projects listed.
The pattern is available free at: http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/multnomah
Our KAL launches in July 2016. Since this is a great pattern for gift-giving, we’re setting the end date for November. That way we can share the finished results at our November meetings before the holidays (in case you’re making it as a gift).
Ask questions and share your progress along the way by following the Multnomah KAL thread in our Ravelry Group: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/the-knitting-guild-of-santa-cruz
Would you like a KAL meetup? Direct suggestions for locations and dates to Martha Dexter, firstname.lastname@example.org
Finally, here are a couple of helpful links:
Kate Ray, the designer of Multnomah, has collected some tips on sizing and use of markers at her website under Multnomah Miscellanea: https://helloknitty.net/multnomah-miscellanea/
The Multnomah Shawl KAL Group in Ravelry: http://www.ravelry.com/groups/multnomah-shawl-kal You don’t have to participate in this group, but there is a lot of helpful information here.
So grab some yarn and needles and let’s get started!
