There are still a couple of weeks left in the KAL/CAL, so don't think you're free yet! We'll have some questions, some quizzes, and maybe even a draw
You’ll need what you have left of Contrast A and your circular needle!
Skills You’ll Learn & Use
- Each skill in the list links to a video in our Video Library where you can learn the skill or remind yourself what to do.
- Pick up and knit
- Casting off
- You are instructed to “cast off in pat,” meaning to cast off in the pattern. When casting off normally you knit one stitch, then the next, and then you pull the first stitch over the second. In this case, because the pattern alternates knit and purl stitches, you will knit one, purl one, pull the knit over the purl, knit one, pull the purl over the knit, and continue in this fashion.
- Mark the stitches you plan to pick up beforehand so you’re confident about the placement. One way you can do this is to take scrap yarn and a large eye, blunt tip needle and run it through the stitches you plan to pick up, then use that as a guide when picking up and knitting the stitches. You can also place stitch markers at the end of a section, or in every number of predetermined stitches (ex. twenty).

When you're done YOUR ENTIRE AFGHAN (you're done!!), why not pat yourself on the back and add a badge to your signature?
Just open the User Control Panel's "Signature" page. In the field where you type your signature, add the code below and you'll be able to show off your progress! It's a good idea to replace last week's badge with this one so your signature isn't cluttered
