OliveKnits "Sailaway" 4 Day Sweater KAL Kits


This is not really about knitting a sweater in four days, but about challenging your own ideas about how long it takes to knit a sweater. This knitalong is about finishing a sweater faster than you thought you could.

This year's sweater is a yoke style cardigan sweater in a three colors

Here are the designer's details.

I'm offering the kits on a sliding scale discount. I understand the costs associated with crafting a sweater quantity using indie dyed yarn. So to help alleviate some of that cost so more crafters have the opportunity to use an indie dyed yarn for their projects you'll find discounts starting at 10% off and go up as much as 30% off for the larger sizes.
