Laminarus Summer KAL

Welcome to the summer cardigan KAL. This is a great way to learn new techniques and have the support of fellow knitters to get to the finish line. Each pattern comes with a code to get free access to the KAL video workshop also.

Double garter stitch and gently twisting DNA cables help to create a stunning cardigan. Knit from the top down with short row set-in sleeves and a gentle a-line shape.

Every new part of the pattern will be released as a 'clue' which is sent to you as an automatic download. The release schedule is as follows:

  • Clue 1: 27th May, 2021 - it all kicks off!
  • Clue 2: 10th June, 2021
  • Clue 3: 24th June, 2021
  • Final Prize: 9th July, 2021 - Raffle drawing for the grand prize from images posted on Teachable and the Facebook Group Finished Images post.
