Knit Along with the Weekender

The Weekender Sweater by Andrea Mowry (sample knit by Susan Stone)

Our first Knit Along: The Weekender
an easy sweater pattern by Andrea Mowry

Have you been wanting to knit your first sweater? Are you looking for an easy project that is more than a scarf or hat? This straight forward pullover knitted sweater may be just for you! Join us for our first Knit Along project and make a sweater of your own.

The Weekender
Andrea Mowry


This popular pullover worsted weight sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. 

It has lovely texture, faux seams, drop shoulders, and some positive ease that is flattering for many body types and in a style that works for the office or out a weekend hike in the woods.

The pattern is versatile, so you can make it your own.

The sample in the picture, knit by Susan Stone, is on display in the shop if you would like to come by to see it in person.

The Knit Along (KAL) is an instructor-led group project that is free to attend for all customers that buy their project yarn from our shop.

We will have a Cast On Party in March, a couple of Help Sessions in April, and a Cast Off / Finished Objects Potluck in May (see dates below). Susan Stone will be on hand for each session to provide instructions and tips so everyone may knit a successful Weekender Sweater. If you can't make a session, you may still participate and join in the fun. Feel free to work on your own and at your own pace.

Weekender KAL Dates:

Cast On Party - Friday, March 22nd from 6pm to 8pm
Help Session - Friday, April 12th from 6pm to 8pm
Help Session - Saturday, April 27th from 1pm to 3pm
Cast Off Potluck - Friday, May 10th from 6pm to 8pm
