What is a Knit Along (aka KAL)?

A Knit Along, or KAL for short, is a community event where knitters come together to work on the same project(s) at the same time. It’s a great way to connect with other knitters, share tips and tricks, get help for a new skill, and stay motivated to finish your project.

I’m so looking forward to this summer’s knit along to make some awesome new friends in the knitting community!

What You Need to Know about the Summer of Socks Knit Along!

Summer of Socks runs from June 1 to midnight on July 31. This year’s Summer of Sock’s theme is Lord of the Rings, inspired by Long Dog Yarn’s One Collection! Just casting on one of the 3 sock patterns gets you an entry!

Grab one pattern to get started or get a discount when you purchase all three!

Enter to win prizes in the Summer of Socks KAL group on Ravelry! What are these wondrous prizes, you might ask? Well…

Show Me the Knit Sock Patterns!!!

This summer’s knit sock patterns come in 3 different styles, with 3 different levels of concentration so there’s something for every knitter! All 3 patterns are available now on Ravelry, but every 2 weeks throughout the knit along I will feature one of the patterns.

Before telling you all about Hobbiton, a knit sock pattern for beginners, I want to give you a sneak peek of the other 2 patterns filling out our trio.
