Thank you so much for taking the time to respond tomy survey on the Magnolia Knitalong.  I asked you to tell me which style you liked best - Magnolia Bloom which features the motif around the yoke, or Magnolia Chunky which has the motif at the hem and cuffs.  

Both versions are absolutely beautiful with the soft halo of mohair and the lovely floral motif.  When you knit this sweater, you’ll feel so accomplished and proud to wear your creation. It’s clear, well-written pattern with a perfect balance of a little challenge on the motif, and smooth sailing as you work the stockinette in the round.  Plus with the knitalong, you’ll have tons of new friends to help you all the way through. 

Which was the favorite?  So far, around 60% favor Magnolia Bloom, and 40% Magnolia Chunky.  They’re both pretty awesome, and I may end up making one of each!  It’s not too late to vote.  This KAL starts May 1, so feel free to send the survey to a friend with this linkhttps://forms.gle/w7f91UWLySWtgsa37

Favorite colors?  The color preferences are literally, all over the map.  There’s not a single color combination that stood out as a clear favorite, which makes me super happy, because I think they’re all beautiful too.  


FAQs - There were some awesome questions that came up, so let’s talk about it

  1. What is a KAL?  A knitalong is where everyone knits the same (or similar) project at the same time.. The leader and all the participants support each other with help, guidance, encouragement, and camaraderie.  
  2. Can I participate remotely?  Absolutely! When you order your kit you’ll receive a link to join our wonderful community platform where you’ll meet the other members of the KAL, and can post questions, get help,and cheer one another along.  If you're local, I'll be in the shop knitting Magnolia every Sunday from 1-4 pm
  3. What is this community? This is a private community exclusively for Crazy for Ewe. It looks and feels a little like Facebook, but it is NOT Facebook.  No ads, and nothing is shared outside the community.  
  4. How hard is this pattern? Depending on your skill level, there are a few techniques that might be new to you.  Knitting from the top down, working from a chart, nupps, and German short rows. But the pattern is very clear, and I'll be doing live videos this week to demonstrate all of these techniques.
  5. How do I know which size to knit?  The sizes given in the pattern, and in the kit, represent the finished measurements of this sweater. The size you should knit depends on your body measurement and the amount of ease you like for this style of sweater.   I will go into this in detail on the podcast here https://youtu.be/mkTHkpnVNGY
  6. Where do I get the yarn and pattern? The kits for the yarn will go live on the Crazy for Ewe website this week.  The patterns are available on Ravelry. Here’s a link forMagnolia Bloom, and here is a link toMagnolia Chunky.  
  7. How do I join the KAL  Go towww.crazyforewe.com and order your color.  Then head over to this link and sign up

Be sure to watch the Crazy for Ewe podcast this week!  I’ll be going over the pattern, the color choices, how to choose which size to knit, and more!


Warmly,

Ellen
