2019 Knit-A-Longs

Participate in one or all of the 2019 ESK knit-a-longs to actually use all that gorgeous hand-dyed yarn, earn more individual yardage, and give your team a little boost while you're at it!

This year's big knit-a-long is a temperature tracking project, so we can all share the weather in our respective corners of the world. Daily or weekly you'll record with your needles the temperature or weather in your home! We've found good patterns to use from mitts to blankets, so your temperature tracker can be as big or small as you like it.

You'll also enjoy four quarterly KALs this year, each with a specific worldly theme that should give you a wide variety of options to suit your crafting plans.

Aussie AMBAH KAL Fade-(US)A-Long KAL Canadian Classics KAL Simply Scandinavian KAL

You can see details for each knit-a-long by clicking on the event above or below - please review the specific rules for each KAL before casting on:
Temperature Tracker - A year-long knit-a-long. Pick your color scheme and make your color key - the yarn and pattern are up to you! Knit or crochet a new segment each day or week based on the weather in your town.
Q1 - Aussie AMBAH - Knit up any Ambah O'Brien pattern in the ESK yarn of your choice.
Q2 - Fade-(US)A-Long - Complete any Andrea Mowry fade pattern.
Q3 - Canadian Classics - Complete any project published by a Canadian designer before 2010.
Q4 - Simply Scandinavian - Complete a project that uses a Scandinavian crafting technique.

How it Works

Each knit-a-long officially begins on the first of the quarter it belongs to. Pick your yarn, maybe even get ambitious and do a swatch (while earning your Swatchbuckler badge!), and cast-on with your fellow ESKers in the Ravelry thread. When your project is done, head to your Yarnathon dashboard to submit your project and get your yardage and stars. Our goal is to have as many of you as possible finish your projects within the timeframe of the knit-a-long (truly knitting "along"), but we'll accept submissions for all 2019 knit-a-longs all the way up through December 25th to allow maximum participation.

Prizes: All 2019 KALs have six size options to allow everyone to play. You'll earn more yardage and stars the larger your project is. You can combine as many projects as you'd like as long as all of them are at least 100 yards.

Requirements for ALL knit-a-longs:

  • All yarn should come from Eat.Sleep.Knit except for minor embellishments
  • All projects should start on or after the start date for the knit-a-long and be completed and submitted by December 25th, 2019
  • All individual projects should use a minimum of 100 yards, even those being combined with others.
  • All projects should use the patterns or themes specified by the individual knit-a-long requirements
  • All projects completed within the knit-a-long calendar timeframe will be eligible for the Ravelry prize drawings for that knit-a-long.
