In a world of text messaging where LOL and TMI have become part of common speech, allow me to introduce to you my favourite acronym: KAL. Knit-along! Unfamiliar? A knit-along is simply a group of knitters all working on the same project at the same time. Have you ever run into a problem with your knitting and though; “If only someone else was knitting this and knew how to help me!”? The two-heads-are-better-than-one phenomenon is part of what makes the knit-along so special. Join our knit-along and you’ll find yourself with constant support and inspiration!
We at Bernat have put together a fantastic new project to inspire you to knit-along with us. Our first knit-along project is a sampler afghan knit in three colours of Bernat® Satin. A sampler afghan is a great way to try out new stitch patterns and with one block worked at a time, completely portable! So what does this great new blanket look like?
Surprise! This knit-along is a ‘mystery’. Every two weeks we will post a new “clue” (part of the pattern) . As you work each clue, I’ll be right there with you providing helpful with tips and tutorials. These clues are only available on the Bernat® Blog, so make sure you stay tuned to get all clues to complete your mystery afghan!
