- DK weight tonals, solid colors, tweeds, and kettle-dyed yarns are recommended. Less color variation is better.
- There are NO photo sneak peeks until June 7th
- The skill level is intermediate, but if you’re a confident advanced beginner, you can do this
- You DO NOT have to knit the sweater in 4 days – we knit together the whole month of July, so you can work at your own pace.

What if I can’t knit it in 4 days?!?
You do not have to knit the sweater in 4 days. For those who like a challenge, you can try your hands at the speedy 4-10 day pace (based on your size), but the speed is completely up to you. We’ll be celebrating and knitting throughout the month of July, so you can work at the pace that’s best for you. The goal is to reach the finish line – however long it may take to get there. We’re here to help you knit a sweater faster than you thought you could, but it’s a personal challenge that will vary from person to person.
