My friend Marie Greene of Olive Knits is kicking off the third annual 4 Day Knit Along on July 4th and I’m so excited! The new sweater pattern is called the Foxtrot Cardigan and it’s SO cute.

The Foxtrot Cardigan will knit up perfectly using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn and I think the design looks like something I’d constantly want to wear. It has an easy fit, adorable wavy front bands and that fun dancing lace around the body.

This KAL will be a little bit different than the other ones we’ve done here at Ewe Ewe. Since Marie will be hosting this one you can follow along on her blog and get support on her amazing Facebook group. But! I’ll still be here, writing blog posts, posting photos, answering questions and knitting the Foxtrot Cardigan right along with you. YAY!

4 Day KAL Details

Ok, so you might be thinking… 4 DAY KAL? Four? Days? Really?

Yes, it’s a fun idea, but also, no, you can knit the sweater at your own pace. There are no rules, just a fun summer knitting party.

Marie has a schedule all planned out for us with a Kickoff Party on July 4th and the festivities run through July 18th where she’ll be hosting a Closing Ceremonies. You can read all about it on her blog.

Right now is the time to get your yarn, buy the pattern pre-order, and check your gauge!

Get your Wooly Worsted yarn!

Wooly Worsted merino yarn is perfect for this sweater. The beautiful twist of this yarn means the stitch definition of the dancing lace will really pop. I chose Midnight Blue for my cardigan and I’m loving it so far!

Find a yarn store: Wooly Worsted is stocked by yarn shops across the US. See our stockists!

Get a kit: If you don’t have an LYS that carries our yarn, I put together yarn kits in 8 colors that I think would work really well for a new fall cardigan. Just choose your size and color! Shop Foxtrot Cardigan yarn kits.
