June 2016 Shawl KAL - Geology Shawl

Our newest Thursday KAL pattern has been announced! The Geology Shawl contains a variety of stitch patterns, including knit/purl combinations and lace patterns. The pattern features both charts and written directions. We have a dedicated facilitator to assist you with the project as well as a Ravelry group and message thread for this KAL. We recommend Manos Del Uruguay Fino yarn because of its generous yardage (important if you are wanting a longer, wider version of this shawl), but you are welcome to use any fingering weight yarn of your choice -- the pattern calls for 420 yards of fingering weight yarn and a Size 6 (US) circular needle, 32".

We'll be meeting four times in June and if you'd like to join the KAL, we'd love to have you! The cost to join is $40 and you'll receive the pattern free*. You will also receive a 10% discount on the yarn you choose for the project. Deadline to sign up is the first day of the KAL - Thursday, June 2.


The Geometry Shawl Knit Along (KAL) will meet on the following days:

Thursday, June 2, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:00 pm
Thursday, June 9, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Thursday, June 16, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Thursday, June 23, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m.
Thursday, June 30, 2016 from 1:00 - 3:00 p.m. (OPTIONAL fifth session)

What to expect from our Thursday Shawl KALs:

  • Expect to learn a lot through hands-on instruction from the KAL - you will be challenged to learn new skills!
  • Expect to have fun! While we're learning, we're also helping one another and socializing.
  • Expect support before, during, and after the KAL - you will have opportunities through our Ravelry group to ask questions until you finish your project. 
  • Expect that because the group is popular and we like to say YES if you want to join us, that there might be as many as a dozen of you on the first day of the KAL! If you would prefer one-on-one time, Lisa is available to help you on Thursdays before the KAL. 
  • Expect extras - special discounts for participants, one-off workshops like how to aggressively block your shawls, and other fun treats. 

*We choose patterns that are available through the Ravelry in-store program. This means we purchase the pattern on your behalf. It's sent to you as a PDF via email and will be saved in YOUR Ravelry library. We do NOT buy the pattern and make photocopies -- your very own pattern copy should arrive in your email, and in some cases will have your name printed on it. A modest printing fee will apply if you'd like a printed color copy of the pattern.
