Valerie's Sandshore Knit-A-Long


Wednesdays  1-3PM  July 6th, 20th, 27th, and August 3rd.

Valerie has chosen Sandshore as her summer Knit-A-Long for this July! Please join us in the shop Wednesdays in July from 1 - 3PM ((we'll skip July 13th, but add August 3rd) to knit this fun cardigan, which can also be a great beach cover up. You can also knit Small Sandshore for the littles in sizes baby through pre-teen (that's what Liza will be knitting with us.) You are welcome to join even if you can't knit in the shop. We'd love to see your projects on social media, so tag makerandstitch or send us pics!

Sandshore is a summery, seamless cardigan worked from the top down. A clean mesh lace forms an intersection down the back, set slightly asymmetrically for interest or down-the-center: your choice. We recommend Quince & Co. Kestrel, a smooth, dry summer linen yarn. or Juniper Moon Farm Cumulus, a lovely, soft cotton choice as well. Skills are advanced beginner to intermediate (casting on, knit, purl, yarn overs, following a pattern, increases, knitting flat and in the round).

KALs are unfacilitated. We just have lots of fun knitting together. If you would like help, we have punch cards available in $5 increments.

Sandshore is intended to be worn with -1 to 1” positive ease at back width at underarm. To select your size, measure across your back from center underarm to center underarm. Add desired ease and then pick the closest size based on finished measurements.
