The Knights Who Say KNIT – A Very Silly Knit-A-Long
“I seek the finest and silliest knitters to join me in a this quest for the grail! You have proven yourself worthy–Will you join us? There will be coconuts! Unladen swallows! And you must bring us….a SHRUBBERY!”
Join us for the Knights Who Say KNIT Knit-a-Long (KAL). This KAL creates a large and beautiful rectangular shawl or wrap with lots of pattern and color changes – you’ll never get bored! Several stitch patterns will be repeated whereas others will only make a cameo appearance. There will be some texture, a bit of lace, and colorwork that involves slipping stitches (no stranded colorwork or brioche!). There is some video support with the pattern for unusual stitches. There are also many, many Monty Python and the Holy Grail references.
There is no instructor for this KAL, but we can work through challenges together. You will need to do general increases, decreases, slip stitches. Most stitch patterns won’t require a chart, but for those that do, there are also line by line written directions.
