Marie Greene 4 day KAL Sailaway

Sailaway with us for the 6th annual 4 Day Knitalong!  July 1st

This year’s sweater is a top-down, seamless cardigan with a round yoke shape and traditional button bands.

Sailaway

This year’s pattern features a range of yarns to include options in DK and Worsted weight yarns.  We have put together a few inspirational combos below. We also have a wool + cotton option in the fantastic Bales & Tails or Tosh wool + cotton for those in warmer climates.

Sailaway features an easy-to-follow slipped stitch design (no colorwork) to provide quick, satisfying results.

ADDED BONUS: This year’s 4 Day KAL pattern includes two design options!

Option 1: The Sailaway original version includes two contrast colors in the yoke design – it’s perfect for those who LOVE color.

Option 2: The “Coastal Grandma” version is a two-color variation on the original with additional contrast details, a taller collar and pinstripe accents.

When do we cast on? July 1st!

Your pattern and knitalong soundtrack will be updated to your pattern library automatically on Friday, July 1. For the complete 4 Day KAL schedule, sponsored event links and all Marie Greene information click here.
