This is a yarn-based craft-a-long that starts on April 1st, 2017 and runs through June 30th. Choose any yarn containing a "summer" type fiber for your project - yarns featuring 60% or more of summer type fiber content will earn you a bonus star. Summer fibers include: linen, cotton, bamboo, silk, sea cell, or Outlast. You can choose any pattern or craft at all for this one!
How it Works
This knit-a-long officially begins on the first of 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 2017 knit-a-longs all the way up through December 25th to allow maximum participation.
Prizes: All 2017 KALs have three size options to allow everyone to play. You'll earn more yardage and stars the larger your project is:
