Sailaway: 6th annual 4 day Knit Along with Olive Knits

Sailaway Knit Along

Sailaway with Marie Greene of Olive Knits for her 6th annual 4-Day Knitalong!

This year's sweater is a top-down, seamless cardigan with a round yoke shape and traditional button bands. It features one main color and two contrast colors.

We had the opportunity to take a look at the pattern preview ahead of time, and Knit Picks staff, Jen, knit her own Sailaway Cardigan in under four days. (Made in High Desert Barnwood Heather, Chanterelle, and Alder)

Look forward to an upcoming podcast episode where Jen discusses her Sailaway Sweater.

This year's pattern will feature a range of yarns including High Desert Worsted and Comfy Worsted.

The pattern features and easy-to-follow slipped stitch design (no colorwork) to provide quick, satisfying results.

For this KAL, you will need one MC and two Contrast Colors (CC1 and CC2). To help you decide colors, we've bundled together exactly the right amount of yarns for the Worsted Weight version of the sweater.

Please note that kits do not include the pattern, which must be purchased separately at OliveKnits.com.
