Summer Crochet/Knit-Along

For those of you that don’t put the needles and hooks down during the summer, we have a CKAL planned!  Via the Ravelry Summer KAL thread, the knitters and crocheters each decided on a top to make.

The knitters’ choice is the Spring Garden Tee by Alana Dakos of Never Not Knitting. There is an adult and child version, both adorable and knit in summery yarns (Be Sweet Bamboo for the adult and Rowan Calmer for the child). The patterns are available in the shop as a hard copy, or you can buy them from us via an in-store Ravelry purchase. The second option means you get both a print out and a pdf copy.

The crocheters’ choice is the Sea Breeze Top, a very lovely empire waist tank top done in a cotton yarn that would look just as lovely in our Be Sweet Bambino cotton bamboo blend.  Also, this pattern is available for free on the Lion Brand Website.  Click here to find it!

CKAL details:

  • Start date: May 28th
  • Finish by: July 30th (so we have time to wear our beautiful summer creations during the summer!
  • Other details: For anyone that would like to use the Be Sweet Bamboo yarn called for in the Spring Garden Tee pattern, Sonia has offered to place a special order.  Just stop by the shop before May 16th and let us know what color and how many skeins you’d like.  We’ll even give anyone ordering a 10% discount!  Thank you Sonia!   (As per shop polices, 50% of the cost is due at time of ordering.)
