For a limited time only - you can have access to our Pattern Tips and Help, as well as recordings from the 6 Zoom sessions from Aug - Sep 2021 by purchasing this KAL Coupon which is 100% redeemable against your yarn purchase for the Spot Sweater!
The Spot Sweater by Anne Ventzel is a gorgeously soft sweater with a simple stranded pattern, twisted rib details and a folded rig edge at the neck.
Worked from the top down on circular needles, this sweater can be knit in 2 or more colours, and is great for men and women alike!
We will be on hand to help you choose the perfect yarns and colours for your sweater. Check out our custom Artyarns Spot Sweater kit here.
Tribe KALs are all about community, yarns 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😁!
Everyone is welcome, but bear in mind that this pattern is classed as Intermediate for Skill Level. So you should be comfortable with knitting and purling, and ready for some stranded colourwork and knitting in the round.
(NB - if you're knitting from silk mohair, it takes 3 strands held together.)

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 shops.
Respect everyone's privacy.
Have fun! That's the most important rule.
