Welcome to the 4th Annual 4 Day KAL! THIS IS A PREORDER so you can start swatching and find out how to participate in the KAL. The pattern will arrive to your Ravelry library on July 1st so we can cast on. The KAL runs July 1st - August 1st. The price is discounted to $8.00 through June 15th. Regular price will be $9.00.
This year’s sweater is Soundtrack - a circular yoke pullover with slipped stitch details. This year’s KAL has 4x more days to knit your sweater (instead of 4-8 days, we’re giving everyone 16-32 days!). Read all about the KAL and how to participate (and see a list of yarn sellers who are joining us) here: https://www.oliveknits.com/soundtrack-4-day-kal/
Bust/Chest Circumference (finished/blocked measurements): 32 (36, 40, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60, 64) in/80 (90, 100, 110, 120, 130, 140, 150, 160) cm
This pattern recommends a DK or light worsted weight wool, knit to a gauge of 21 st in 4 in/10 cm on a US Size 5/3.75mm needle in stockinette stitch, blocked. Many local yarn shops and yarn sellers are participating in the 4 Day KAL and will have yarn and color recommendations to inspire you.
Main Color: 900 (1000, 1100, 1188, 1283, 1360,
1442, 1528, 1620) yards/ 823 (914, 1005, 1086, 1173, 1243, 1318, 1397, 1481) meters
Contrast Color: 175 (187, 200, 212, 229, 243, 257, 273, 289) yards/ 160 (171, 183, 194, 209, 222, 235, 249, 264) meters
Note: Yardage may vary depending on your yarn selection.
The suggested yarn is Kelbourne Woolens Scout of which I have plenty of stock to choose from but I think it will look equally in a tweedy yarn such as Rowan Felted Tweed DK, a kettle-dyed such as Malabrigo Arroyo or what about a summer yarn such as Rowan Cotton Cashmere?
NOTE - The pdf Ravelry pattern will be emailed separately from Ravelry to you. If you include in the notes your Ravelry name, it will be added to your library and you will be emailed updates for the full pattern July 1.
