It's time for a Knit Along! Seeing all the coolness happening at Vogue Knitting Live on the other side of the world, we felt compelled to choose an amazing pattern knit along and share the fun :)
We chose the "Amber Leafy Coat" by Quinny Zhang, published in the early fall edition of 2019. This gorgeous, double sided, two color, cable brioche coat can be made in two sizes: S/M and L. Our version is being knit with slightly lighter weight yarn: Donegal Tweed by Lang Yarns.
Preorders are open between today and Febuary 9th. Because we order in bulk we can give you a 10% discount on the total amount :) You can order your kit HERE and you can choose your colors. You can view all the colors HERE.
Please note: this is a pre-order, which means that the packages will be ordered and assembled from the 10th of February, and are expected to be ready/ shipped from the 15th (shipping is free of cost based on where you live in the world and the minimum order amount needed to get free shipping).
The pattern for this amazing coat is only available via Vogue Knitting and is published in the early fall 2019 edition. You can download their app and buy single copies of the magazine without a subscription. Unfortunately it's not possible for us to do this for you.
How does it work?
To join the KAL and join the prize draw you need to order a kit form our website. You'll receive a raffle ticket and at the end of the KAL (3 months total) the winning numbers will be chosen by a random number generator. Anyone, anywhere on this planet can join :) we're opening a thread on ravelry and a group on facebook for you all to join in the conversation and show your progress :) Here you can ask all your questions and there's always somebody who can help you out :) The Yarn Lounge on Thursday nights (at the shop) will also be a nice location to participate in this KAL.
Even though there's 3 months reserved for this KAL, you do not actually have to finish in order to have a chance to win the prizes. Anybody who joins automatically joins for the prize draw :) We want it to be fair for all who choose to play, and even if this is a first time brioche pattern we want you to have fun and still have a chance to win :)

1. This is important to know: because this is a preorder and you choose your colors of preference: by joining the KAL (ordering and finishing the payment) you agree to the terms that these kits are non refundable and cannot be exchanged. Opened or not. Choose your colors with care. Either come down to the shop and have a good look before you order, or pull out your best google-fu to make sure you get the colors you want :) These kits are ordered and assembled specially for you.
2. Did you win the Knit & Purr?! Cool! Since this is a bit of an expensive gift we expect you to either come and pick it up, or we're asking you to cover the postage.
3. Everyone anywhere on this planet can join our KAL and is allowed to join our facebook and ravelry group. All we ask is for you all to be kind and friendly in these groups. This one is very obvious and not that hard at all.... it's just that 2 'rules' is lame and 3 is such a magic number. Also this one is very easy to follow so YAY!
