Join Our Knit-a-Longs (KALs)

Please knit along with us on Ravelry where we will be working on a different project each month with a different group leader for each projet.

Great American Aran Afghan 
Leslie is leading a long-term knit-a-long for the Great American Aran Afghan. Members of our knit night group cast-on in February and will be knitting one block a month. For more information, please visit our Ravelry group discussion about this project.

Baby Alpaca Grande Top Down Jacket

     We have a great selection of colors in Plymouth's Baby Alpaca Grande and when it arrived the ladies at knit night immediately fell in love with this jacket/cardi pattern.  It's a quick knit and our KAL leader also found a pattern online for a cute little flower which she used to hold it closed. After making several she found a better way to make them and her version of the flower pattern is here.  She can also tell you about a few other changes she made to the jacket. The pattern is available at our shop and more information about the KAL is available here.

Woolly Pumpkin

      Our October KAL is this great felted pumpkin that has been on display at the shop since the KAL leader made it last fall and used it as a centerpiece on her Thanksgiving table.  We'll be sorry to give the pumpkin back to her for this year's holiday events so we're just going to have to make our own to replace it.  This Marie Mayhew pattern is available at the shop and it even includes a recipe for pumpkin butter!  More information about the pumpkin KAL is here. 

Baby Alpaca Grande Jacket

Here are our latest KAL projects, the Top Down Jacket done in Plymouth Yarn's Baby Alpaca Grande and a felted life-size pumpkin from Marie Mayhew designs.  For information on these two KALs please visit our Dog House Yarns Ravelry group.
