July, 2015 meeting (at 12:30)

    There will be two KALs this month!

HEADBAND KAL

      We will be knitting the Winter Wonderland Cable Headband. This is a free pattern on Ravelry.

    Bring:

  • worsted yarn (light colored as this shows the cable stitch better)
  • #7 or#8 needles
  • cable needle or a double pointed needle

    This will be a good opportunity to learn/practice cables and provisional cast on.

ROSE TRELLIS VEST KAL

Download the pattern and locate the yarn, the pattern is free on Ravelry at http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/rose-trellis-shawl-vest

 

The Hitofude KAL started in January, 2015, and continued for several months:

The pattern costs 200 yen or about $2.01. By popular demand, we will be starting the Hitofude cardigan as a KAL in January. Reola was wearing this sweater at the September meeting and Gerda in November. You can see more images and download this pattern on Ravelry at:

Monthly Hat KAL

     Each month we will be spotlighting a hat pattern to be knitted for the Monthly Hat KAL.

January: Anja's Newsboy Hat February: The circuitry hat
March: Drips April: Hartwell (contact president Joan for instructions) May: Belt welt
June: Coffee Beans and Sugar Cubes July: Winter Wonderland Cable Headband August: Blue Leaf Headband

A new hat will be chosen each month. Please bring your completed hat to next month's meeting; we'll take a group photo (also posted at appropriate Show & Share page)!

 If you have questions about the directions, you can get assistance during Tech Time (12:30-2pm at the General Meeting). Several members have completed theirs, so you will get plenty of help.

 

What is a knit-along?

Knit-alongs are usually held 90 minutes prior to our normal monthly meeting. A small group of interested knitters meets for two or three months to learn a technique or work on a project. Often, the group provides support to each other via e-mail or telephone.

Prior knit-along subjects have included fingerless gloves, Maggie's Pretty Purple Purse, socks, double-knitting, modular knitting, Medrith Glover's Circumnavigated Cardigan, Lucy Neatby's Radiant Shawl ,  Elizabeth Zimmermann's Baby Surprise Sweater,  Sunburst Slingbag by justonemorerow.com, Chris Bylsma's Crayon Box JacketNalu Mitts Round Dishcloth, February Lady Sweater, Scrappy Socky Stripey Cardi for babies, and Elizabeth Zimmermann's Ribwarmer.

 

If you have ideas for future knit-alongs, contact one of our Education VPs, Reola or Kate, at the email address listed in your guild directory or at info@stlouisknittersguild.com(refer to "Guild KAL" in your subject line) or bring it up on our Ravelry group!
