VOLITION KAL with Patty Lyons (6)

WEBS is excited to be the official yarn vendor for the Patty Lyons knit-along/video sweater class—VOLITION: Build Your Own Sweater Adventure. 

Volition is a top-down, nearly seamless construction, with three different stitch patterns, the choices between cardigan or pullover and an infinite number of variations in length and sleeves. This is not a sweater pattern, it’s 6–24 patterns in one!

This will be part KAL, part video sweater class, part design 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 pattern here.

How does a KAL (stands for Knit-Along) work?

As soon as you purchase your pattern you will get your introduction and gauge videos, 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. You will receive most of the video sweater class at once along with a pattern to make a mini version so you can make your sweater decisions.

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