Join us for the Carol Feller, Camira Sweater Knit-A-Long (KAL)! Beginning on October 7, knitters will be able to download the first part of this beautiful sweater pattern via Ravelry. You can even join the KAL forum and see how others are progressing.

The Camira sweater is done in worsted weight yarn and has lots of fun elements to it. Its unusual construction provides a little challenge while also opening up your skill sets to new shapes. The one technique that you will use the most is picking up stitches. Don't worry! Picking up stitches is a specialty of Tina's and you will be a pro at it by the end. 

Note, you will be required to purchase the pattern through Ravelry.
