The 4 Day Sweater Challenge by Olive Knits!

The 4 Day Sweater Challenge by Olive Knits is back at LYS for the second year. It sounds wacky but it can be done and what do you have to lose? Give it a try and end up with a beautiful worsted weight sweater that enhances your wardrobe.

We split it into THREE options for this KAL:

1.  Purchase your yarn at the shop (we have several suggestions), and get 10.00 off of your sweater yarn purchase. 

2.  Use yarn from your stash, your ticket to the celebration is $20.00

3.  NOT WILD about Foxtrot?  Choose any Marie Greene sweater for the KAL and join in the fun!  Option 1 and 2 still apply, but you can make the Marie Green sweater of your choosing!  Note- you will not qualify for the Marie Green Facebook giveaways unless you do Foxtrot. 

Come and enjoy a fun way to knit a sweater and celebrate with us all your hard work.


There’s a sliding timeline that adjusts for sizes (32-52″ bust size with positive ease built-in), so knitters have between 4-8 days for the official “challenge” portion. Whether you knit it in 4 days or 4 weeks, the goal is to simply to knit a sweater more quickly than you thought you could. That’s it. There is NO pressure to make it in 4 days (knit at a pace that works for you); the crazy timeline is just for fun.

How to make sure you are “in” the Olive Knits KAL:

Set up a project page on Ravelry, be sure it’s linked to the Foxtrot Cardigan and use the tags: 4daykal, 4daykal2019 and foxtrotcardigan. That’s it!  Pick your yarn and post a photo of it (or your swatch) to your project page, and when the time comes, cast on with us on July 1st. No matter when you finish, as long as you’ve participated by creating a project page with the appropriate tags and have made a good effort, you’re eligible for a prize from Olive Knits!

We invite you to cast on at LYS on Thursday July 4st from 10-12 pm.  Then on Friday, July 12th from 5-7pm we will celebrate your progress or your finished sweater. No matter your degree of completion come enjoy refreshments. Show and Tell on August 2nd at 6:00pm at Community Handwork!  See you at the KAL!!

Skill Level: intermediate
Skill Details: Previous sweater experience is helpful but you will be among friends who will help, and Olive Knits has excellent patterns with clear instructions. Plus, the FB page and Ravelry Page is super friendly and helpful.
