Welcome to the 4th Annual 4 Day KAL!
(To retrieve the pattern when it’s available, just login to your account here on this site and click on your orders and you’ll see where to download it.)
The KAL runs July 1st through August 1st. The timeline is 4x as long this year – instead of 4-8 days we’re giving you 16-32 days. But remember: the goal is just to knit a sweater faster than you thought you could, the timeline is really up to you. We just want to help you reach the finish line.
Skill Level: Advanced Beginner
This pattern recommends a DK or light worsted weight wool, knit to a gauge of 21 st in 4 in/10 cm on a US Size 5/3.75mm needle in stockinette stitch, blocked. Many local yarn shops and yarn sellers are participating in the 4 Day KAL and will have yarn and color recommendations to inspire you. You may see the list of participating businesses and read more about the KAL at www.oliveknits.com/soundtrack- 4-day-kal/ – I encourage you to check out their recommendations.
