We were over the moon when Maddie asked us to host this KAL for her fab new design.
The rules are simple:

  • You have from today (16th April 2019) until 31st August 2019 to knit the Ama Sweater.
  • We’ll announce prizes over the coming weeks, but to qualify for a prize, make sure you post a picture of your FO in the FO Thread in Maddie’s Ravelry group.
  • Make sure you have a full project page on Ravelry too.
  • If you’re sharing on social media, use the tags #amasweater #amasweaterkal, and if you’re feeling cheeky, #amasweaternoyoureasweater 😉 Don’t forget to tag us (@tipsyknits) and Maddie (@harveyknits)- we love to see your progress!
  • Join us in our group and Maddie’s for chatter threads – share your plans, your colour combinations, let us know how you’re getting on!
