Advent Scarf 2019 KAL
Tricia Weatherston has designed an Advent KAL scarf that will give knitters a chance to practice Gansey stitches! There will be lots of knits and purls and some simple cables. The KAL begins December 1 and a clue is delivered each day for 24 days to your Ravelry account.
Becky and Beth will be hosting a group gathering for this KAL on Mondays December 2, 9, 16, 30 and January 6 from 5:45-7:45pm. We will build our Gansey skills and hope you will want to come join us!
There is no cost for the Monday evening sessions but we would like to know if you are planning on joining us. Please RSVP to (614) 734-0618.
KAL Supplies:
  • Yarn – Shepherd’s Wool 3 skeins (700-750 yards)
  • Needle: Size 7 US/ 4.5mm
To get ready for December 1st:
  • Cast on 60 stitches.
  • Knit 4 rows.
  • Set up Row: k3, p54, k3.

    Hoping to catch up. Thanks for the chance to practice Gansey

    Hi! So excited that you are participating! We met together for the first time. Here are a couple of suggestions:
    1) The pattern uses a garter stitch border – three knit stitches on both sides. The written instructions and the charts do not mention the garter stitch border. So we are suggesting a stitch marker three stitches in on both ends to jog our memories to do the border.
    2) If you are using the written instructions rather than the charts, there are a couple of mistakes for December 1 and December 2. On December 1, Row 21 should start out K3, P5, K3 rather than P3, K5, P3. On December 2, Row 29 should start K3, P1, K3, P1, K3 rather than K3, P1, K3, P1, K2.
    3) It might be a good idea to write the row numbers on the charts – they are a little hard to read.
    4) Life lines to separate each day’s rows.
    5) Join the Ravelry group “Sock Madness Forever.” There is a thread for the Advent Scarf 2019 KAL and the designer, Tricia Weatherston, will post any errors in the daily patterns there.

    I think that’s it for now!
    Thanks for getting in touch,
    Beth
