Flow KAL

Welcome to the official Knit Along Club Flow KAL!

Flow KAL

The designer, Norah Gaughan, describes Flow as “An easy tank with fitted top and gracious fullness at the hem.” This design makes Flow attractive on a wide range of body styles. 

Flow is constructed in two pieces seamed together. It is worked flat from the bottom up. 

This is the PERFECT project to introduce you to sweater knitting if you have never knit a sweater. It is a relatively simple top that can be worked to fit petite, plus size women, and everything in between. 

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Choose an appropriate yarn when the recommended yarn is discontinued or hard to find
  • Knit a proper swatch to test your gauge
  • Make adjustments if your gauge does not match the pattern gauge
  • Knit a sweater from the bottom up
  • Read your knitting so you can always tell what row you are on
  • Finish your garment professionally:
    • Properly sew seams
    • Join a new yarn without tying knots
    • Hide your yarn tails
    • Pick up and knit the neckband and armholes
  • Make modifications to fit your body and style (we will be addressing how to make the shoulder straps wider, how to make a fancier hem, and how to adjust the length)
  • Fix common mistakes without ripping out rows of work
  • How to translate/interpret vague instructions

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off prior to starting this KAL.
