Affiknity KAL with Patty Lyons (2)

WEBS is excited to be the official yarn vendor for the next Patty Lyons knit-along / video sweater class:

AFFIKNITY: A whole family of sweaters!

Affiknity is an adult unisex sweater that comes in 12 sizes and features a pullover AND cardigan.

Affiknity Jr is the adorable kid’s version of the cardigan and pullover that comes in 4 sizes.

This will be part KAL, part video sweater class, and all FUN! With sweater modifications, knitting how-to's and hours of videos you will be able to make many sweaters from this one class. 

➤ You can purchase the adult pattern here.
➤ You can purchase the children’s pattern here.
➤ Or bundle them for big savings!

How does a KAL (stands for Knit-Along) work?
As soon as you purchase your pattern you will get your pattern introduction and videos on sizing, yarn selection and gauge, as well as your schematic and material information, so plenty of time to order your yarn, pick your size and start your swatching. 

Since you have SO many options, this KAL will work a bit differently from the traditional schedule of “clues”. You will receive the whole pattern at once and people will be joining in throughout the KAL.

To keep the fun of us all working together, there will be live help sessions on Zoom in November, December, and January, so join us when you’re ready!

KAL Schedule

  • October 18: On sale / intro pattern videos & tutorials
  • November 1: Cable chart / practice pattern, cable videos, and sweater mod tutorials
  • November 15: Full pattern release
  • Randomly drawn participation prizes awarded every other week, the sooner you cast on, the more chances to win!
  • January 24: Grand prizes awarded

Join Patty's Ravelry group for discussion threads and more information, including prize drawings! Join the KAL anytime…the KAL info will stay live forever, and the video tutorials will never expire! More information about scheduling and KAL FAQ is available on PattyLyons.com.
