What is a Virtual-knit-along?
A knit-along is an event where knitters gather together and start a project together. In this knit-along we will be knitting the Linden scarf pattern from Lion Brand yarns together. You can access the pattern here on Lion Brand's website
. Please cast-on 22 to stitches before the class. If you are new to knitting please review the videos below before the knit-along.
What do I need for the class?
2 skeins of bulky weight yarn (247 yd each)
Size 11 US needles (8mm) (I recommend bamboo/wooden needles)
Where do I buy yarn and needles?
In need of yarn and needles to start your project? If you'd like to shop local, I recommend Hill Country Weavers. You can shop online, or set up a virtual shopping appointment. Hill Country Weavers offers both shipping and contactless pick-up at their store. Other online options include: Lion Brand, Michaels, JoAnns, Hobby Lobby or your preferred craft store. Make sure to double check the yarn is bulky weight and you have 247 yards of each color.
