January Gansey KAL

Marie Greene of Olive Knits is at it again, and this time we're hopping aboard the gansey train.  (Have you seen the armpits?? Gorgeous!)
Marie's goal with this KAL is to empower sweater knitters with new skills and an appreciation for the traditional gansey sweater design. A new, special bonus to this KAL is that anyone who purchases the January Gansey before February 28th will receive access to Marie's week-by-week workshop modules, designed to walk you through everything you need to know to make this sweater successfully. 

Join us Tuesday and Friday afternoons from 3:30-5:30 as work on our JanGans together!

What's a Knit-A-Long, you ask? Also known as a KAL, Knit-A-Longs are an informal organization of knitters who want to get together and knit the same thing. There are no class fees, as this isn't a structured knitting class, and there are no commitments, but there is plenty of camaraderie! 

How to get started: 
  • Purchase the January Gansey pattern
  • Download your pattern and follow the instructions included to sign up to receive the workshop modules each week
  • Choose your yarn and start swatching!
  • Show up, and KNIT!
