Winter 2018 Knit-a-long
January 8th - March 19th
Boxy, Worsted Boxy and V-Neck Boxy
by Joji Locatelli
What it is: Joji Locatelli’s Boxy is a simple, oversized sweater that is available in a wide range of sizes and looks flattering on any body type. There are three variations of this sweater: the original Boxy, V-Neck Boxy, Boxy and the Worsted Boxy. All three count as a part of our knit-a-long!
Why we chose it: The Boxy series is a universally flattering sweater available in a wide range of sizes. The most complicated part of the pattern is some short row shaping in the shoulders, it is suitable for the adventurous beginner. Every Boxy pattern has a 4.5+/5 star rating on Ravelry, and is rated by thousands of knitters as very easy to easy.
Each Boxy pattern has two options: a seamed, and non-seamed variation. With fingering weight and worsted weight options, there is a version of the Boxy Sweater for every knitter!
We will be offering free help sessions on Monday evenings from 6-8pm for the duration of the KAL.

Q: KAL? What’s a KAL?
A: KAL stands for Knit-A-Long. Essentially, a KAL consists of a group of knitters knitting the same pattern at the same time. We choose patterns that we love, that we think our customers will really love too. Typically our KAL projects are at an intermediate level.
Q: I’m not a very fast knitter, do I have to keep on a schedule?
A: Nope! Every knitter has their own pace, and there is no need to knit according to a schedule. There is no need to try to be finished at a certain time.
Q: Do I have to knit at the shop?
A: While we love to have knitters in the shop, and coming to Monday night and Wednesday morning knitting groups, there is no need to come to the shop and knit. Knit at home in your pajamas, or come into the shop, whatever you want!
Q: So, why participate in a WildFibers KAL?
A: Staff at the shop have knitted the project in advance, so we are all familiar with not only the pattern, but the yarn we recommend. We can help with any issues that may arise in your knitting, we may have had the same problems and know how to fix it. KALs are a great time to try a new technique, or something you may not have chosen to knit on your own, you can be confident that the pattern we have chosen is well written and there is always support available at the shop. Participants also receive 10% off the yarn to complete the project!
