The 4-day KAL is Back

Marie Greene is back with her annual sweater challenge and a new sweater to knit in four days. The 4th Annual 4-Day KAL kicks off on July 4th with Soundtrack, a top-down DK weight sweater that features graphic, slipped-stitch yoke detailing. The KAL officially runs through August 1st, allowing you to choose any four days to stitch your sweater, but if you need more time, that’s okay, too. The pattern is now available for pre-order to give you time to collect materials and swatch ahead of the cast on date.
