Galanta Sweater & Vest | Autumn KAL 2023

It's one of our favourite times of the year around here...

It's Autumn KAL time!

We get to dream about our first sweater for the cooler weather and this year we went for options. 

Why? 

Because everyone's dream sweater is a little different. 

So join us this autumn as we choose from various scrumptious yarns, different edges and modifications, as well as choosing between a full sweater or a vest pattern. 

Do you find it hard to keep motivated when you knit garments?

A knit-along may be just what you're looking for.

You'll find lots of help along the way when you run into problems and tons of support to cheer you on to the finish line.

How do I get started?

To begin with, grab the Galanta pattern here. It comes with a full complimentary workshop series for the KAL ahead. 

Then you will decide if you want to knit the sweater or the vest.

Now it's time to grab the yarn kit for the vest or the sweater. All kits come with both Nua Worsted and Blasta yarn options. You can see Nua Worsted kit knit up above in the vest and Blasta for the sweater.

Yes, you can also stash dive if you have some prized yarn at home you can't wait to cast on with. 

Once you have your yarn and pattern, you can join the KnitHub chat forum here to chat with fellow knitters about which option you picked and get started with your swatching and sizing!

Finally, you need to log into Teachable to access your video workshops. These will be added as each new clue is released. You will also find pattern updates in here too as well as a dedicated comment section. 

Now all that's left is to start swatching! 

Have any questions? 

Post them in our dedicated KnitHub KAL channel here.
