Olive Knits 4-Day KAL pattern pre-orders start this week

Ewe Ewe Yarns is joining and promoting the Third Annual 4 Day Knitalong by Marie Green of Olive Knits. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted merino yarn works perfectly for Marie’s new cardigan design for this blockbuster KAL happening in July.

Not sure who Marie Greene is? You might remember the Beekeeper Cardigan from last year’s 4 Day Sweater KAL or maybe you’ve seen her latest book Seamless Knit Sweaters in 2 Weeks.

This year the design is an easy-to-wear worsted weight sweater called the Foxtrot Cardigan. The finished garment is still under wraps but I’ve been working on the testing pattern preview using Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn and it’s looking SO GOOD!

This is the new Wooly Worsted color 73 Midnight Blue and it is just a joy to knit. Plus, Wooly Worsted has such amazing stitch definition that the dancing stitches are really starting to POP.

Remember this is just a shop sneak peek — we can’t share anything until Marie announces the pattern pre-order on Thursday, May 23. Here are the top secret photos of Marie’s sweater sample.

Why join this KAL with Ewe Ewe Yarns?

You know I love a good knit-along and I’ll be here promoting the project right along with you. You can use any of the information, blog posts, and photographs I create to enhance your marketing efforts in your store and online.

Wooly Worsted is a great alternative yarn for this project. The yarn is easy to knit and a pleasure to wear. The retail price-point ranges from $90-$180 for a finished, high-quality, long-lasting sweater.

I don’t think this yarn gets the raves it deserves – cannot find a better quality yarn for the price!

Timeline

  • May 23rd - 4 Day KAL pattern pre-order launches on Ravelry for a discounted price. The theme, yardage, swatching information, and photo teasers will be launched to the public. Ewe Ewe Wooly Worsted yarn will be included in this launch list!

  • June 27th - Full pattern is released to Ravelry libraries

  • July 4th -  Official Cast-On Day!

  • July 18th - Last day of the Official Knit-along and Closing Ceremonies

Note: As a shop you can begin the KAL any time from June 27th onward adjusting the time for your store’s marketing efforts as necessary.  The official timeline is when Marie will actively be supporting the community in her Facebook group, doing Facebook Live videos and offering prizes to participants. If you want to run yours for a longer period of time or stop/start on a different schedule, that's perfectly fine (as long as you don't launch prior to June 27th since the pattern will not be released until that day). 

Reasons for your shop to join this KAL

  1. Great for a range of skill levels.

  3. A fun/unique (and easy) sweater pattern.
