We are starting with the neck part of the jumper as this pattern is knitted from the top downwards.

Please head over to our Facebook group which we have set up for this event for you to like, share and comment.

    I am so excited, I just finished my other project last night and was wondering if this KAL was going to take place. I now know what my next project is going to be. Happy Happy Knitting!

    I am looking forward to this knit a long…I am in Canada so I need to find a yarn that will work with this project.

    I am really enjoying knitting this jumper and have rather raced ahead during my camping trip this week to Dorset. It’s a a perfect pick up/put down project and I’ve been carrying it about all week knitting a stripe or two on Studland beach, Corfe castle (watched by a flock of Soay sheep), Kimmeridge bay and stuck under canvas as the rain set in 🙁

  6. Adhiti says:

    I can’t even take part as Love Knitting have not sent me anything via email when i registered my interest. Oh well…..

  7. Paula says:

    I would like to participate. First hurdle, How do I get the pattern?

  8. Denise says:

    I also registered to join but did not receive email, nor am I on Facebook. Where do I go to get the pattern?

  9. Karen says:

    Where is the knit-along? I see some photos of started jumpers on FB, and one entry on this blog saying it has begun, but nowhere do I see any instructions or guidance. I’ve done knit-alongs before on other sites that include step by step instructions, along with photos of the project in progress. I can’t even tell who is running this knit-along and which is their project. Please point me in the right direction. I purchased this pattern and yarn to make the sweater thinking that there would be assistance and guidance along the way.
