  • Join us for the latest Tribe KAL, kicking off Jan 2024!

    We are so excited to present this newest Tribe KAL! As with previous KALs, your purchase is 100% redeemable against your yarn purchase.

    Roughly based on the 216w-07 Geometric Pattern Sweater by Pierrot Yarns, but with some key modifications, this KAL will be amazing for making your own unique version of this pattern, and learn/practice lots of technique along the way.

    Our Zoom-based KALs are guided, which means we will be showing technique, with tips and advice as we go, as well as the pattern, but you should be confident with basic knit and purl stitches, and casting on.

    We'll tackle all these exciting techniques:
     reading a Japanese pattern
    • adjust pattern size for your perfect fit
     perfect tubular cast on
     how to knit the ribbed fake cuffs/hem
     make your own stranded motifs for sleeves (or use the ones in the pattern)

     how to customise your sweater
     Seaming your pieces, and expert mattress stitch
    Picking up stitches

    We're there to guide you all the way: all the technique, tips, colour advice and camaraderie you've come to expect from our fabulous KALs! 
    (Zoom recordings will be sent in case you can't make it, or want to view later).

    Your KAL Coupon is 100% redeemable against your yarn purchase! (Which basically means all the Zoom sessions are free 😁.)

    Check out our IG Live where we go over more info about this KAL and the project!

    Tribe KALs are all about community, yarny friendships, support and laughs. We keep doing them because they are so much fun! Try to keep your Friday evenings free during the KAL so you can get the most out of the KAL. Whilst there is a good amount of technique discussed during the sessions, the idea is more of a "knit-along" as opposed to workshops. It's more of a social thing😁, where we encourage and inspire others with our creations.

    Zoom and KAL Rules:

    Please do not share Zoom details with anyone, including recordings. All attendees on Zoom are required to have their camera (don't worry - no one will judge you for messy hair, messy bedroom etc 😁). Upon joining, Zoom attendees give permission for the sessions to be recorded and shared amongst KAL participants only. 

    I (Milli) will be available for KAL help during Zoom sessions and via the Ravelry group only. I'm afraid I can't address individual help via emails or phone.

    Be kind and courteous.

    No hate speech or bullying.

    No promotions or spam. Please do not use the group to promote products from other sellers.

    Respect everyone's privacy.

    Have fun! That's the most important rule.
