   Fade-(US)A-Long KAL - Q2 2019
   Rewards: Up to 1500 yards and 5 stars

KAL Details:

  • Pattern Choices: Your choice of any Andrea Mowry fade pattern.
  • KAL Dates: Apr. 1 - June 30th

This craft-a-long starts on April 1st, 2018 and runs through June 30th. Choose any Andrea Mowry fade pattern: Find Your Fade, What the Fade, Free Your Fade, So Faded (also available in Pint Size) Pullover, and Comfort Fade Cardi. You're also welcome to choose an alternate fade pattern from any of our other favorite designers: Joji's Fading Point, Stephen West's Dotted Rays, Suvi Simola's Ground Pepper, or the very popular Faded Beanie, to name a few. Fade patterns need to involve blending multiple colors to create a gradual color change to qualify - if you're not sure, we recommend sticking with one of the linked projects above or e-mailing us with specific pattern questions. You can choose any craft at all for this one!

How it Works

This knit-a-long officially begins on the first of April. First, choose your pattern! 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.
