Dovetail Sweater KAL
Knit alongs (KALs) are a fun way to build skills and build community, as other knitters work on the same pattern together during a particular time frame. Here at Fairmount Fibers, we have created resources and opportunities for local yarn shops (LYS) to run their own KAL with the Dovetail Sweater.
The Dovetail Sweater, by Quinn Reverendo, is a beginner-friendly colorwork sweater featuring Alegria Grande Bocados. Bocados are 25g/50yd mini-skeins of Alegria Grande. The pattern is size-inclusive and is without charts. Knitters of all skill levels will enjoy the straightforward pattern and opportunity to play with color!
The Fairmount Fibers Dovetail Sweater KAL Resources page is there to equip yarn shops with the tools to run their own event on their own timeline. This includes convenient links to the Dovetail Sweater pattern, Bocados packages of accent color combinations, and Alegria Grande yarns for the main body of the sweater. There is a suggestion guide for each colorway to start your planning. Also on the Resources page are videos on how to knit the Dovetail Sweater. Shops are welcome to share these with your knitters to build skills and confidence.
Knitters are welcome to explore the Resources page as well. Manos del Uruguay stockists that are planning or in the midst of hosting a Dovetail Sweater KAL are listed and linked. On social media, the hashtags #dovetailsweater and #dovetailsweaterkal are encouraged so we can follow your progress, cheer on all the knitters, and share to inspire others. On June 1, we'll choose one participating LYS and one knitter via these hashtags and each will receive a prize!
