(Rhinebeck) Sweater KAL - Q2 2017
Rewards: Up to 750 yards and 2 stars

KAL Details:

  • Pattern Choices: Your choice of any sweater pattern.
  • Bonus Star: Knit your sweater in under two weeks, in true Rhinebeck sweater tradition.
  • KAL Dates: Jul. 1 - Sep. 30th

This is a project-based craft-a-long that starts on July 1st, 2017 and runs through September 30th. This quarter, we're knitting a sweater that's perfect for fall - a virtual "Rhinebeck sweater" for all of us (and maybe a real Rhinebeck sweater for those going to Rhinebeck!). Your project can be any sweater, which, yes, have sleeves. To qualify, your sweater should have two long sleeves and be long enough to be considered more than a shrug. You'll also be able to earn a bonus star by knitting your sweater in less than two weeks!

How it Works

This knit-a-long officially begins on the first of the July. 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:

Requirements for ALL knit-a-longs:
