 Feb/March2024 MAL (Make-Along)- Lento Sweater

$40 - 4 weeks - Thursdays 6-8pm 2/29, 3/7, 3/14 & 3/21 at Dandelion Fiber Company


Our first KAL was such a success #vestbesties that we need to get another on the books.  The Lento sweater wears like a sweatshirt.  You will be grabbing for it time and time again, and may want to knit more than one.  The lovely pattern by Jonna Hietala calls for fingering weight yarn held together with mohair, but works up best in our opinion with one strand of suri alpaca and one strand of fingering weight yarn.  Come check out the sample in the store, you’ll love it.  

We will be bringing in some gorgeous Suri from our friend Susie (Fiber Macgyver) the week prior to the MAL. Trust us, it will be worth the wait. 

This KAL will be 4 weeks.   Come to the store, meet other knitters in our community, and enjoy knitting this fantastic sweater.  You knit at your own pace, there is no race to the finish line.    

To participate please register, spaces are limited.  Please use yarn from DFC and be all set to cast on this incredible sweater on February 29.  Remember, a MAL is not a class.  There is a little bit of support by our instructor, Kristin, but MAL’s are designed to knit amongst a community and not learn new skills.  Drop a stitch, we’ve got you covered.  Questions on size to knit or gauge, we can do that too!

You can bring your own beverage, alcohol or not.  We can’t wait to host you in our store and bring together the amazing knitting community Minneapolis offers.
