Summer of Socks KAL - Q2 2018
Rewards: Up to 750 yards and 2 stars

KAL Details:

  • Pattern Choices: Your choice of any sock pattern.
  • Bonus Star: Complete three or more patterns.
  • KAL Dates: Apr. 1 - Jun. 30th

This is a project-based craft-a-long that starts on April 1st, 2018 and runs through June 30th. This quarter, we're making socks, socks, sock! Socks are the perfect summer project because they're lightweight and so portable for traveling and joining you on your summer adventures. Plus, at the end of the summer as the fall chill creeps in, suddenly you've got a drawerful of new handknit socks to keep your toes cozy. You can use any yarn and any sock pattern at all for this KAL - you must knit a complete pair to qualify. You can earn a bonus star by completing three or more pairs of socks - at least three different patterns should be used to qualify.

How it Works

This knit-a-long officially begins on the first of the April. 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 2018 knit-a-longs all the way up through December 25th to allow maximum participation.

Prizes: All 2018 KALs have three 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, 2018
  • 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.
