Stephen West Fantastitch or PICK your West Knits - Knit A Long via ZOOM

We're celebrating Stephen's second Fiberside appearance with a Knit A Long! 
Stephen suggested everyone do a Fantastitch, and we love that pattern, but perhaps you've been wanting to cast on a different Stephen West Project.  

At this KAL you can pick any Stephen West pattern and join in the fun.   

We ask that at least 50% of your yarn for your WestKnits project be purchased from Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  Many of the Stephen West projects are great stash busters!!  

More about Fantastitch below!

Fantastitch is a semi-circular shawl packed with textured stripes and slipped stitches.  The graphic details and clean lines of the shawl beautifully showcase hand dyed colorways. The pattern is written for seven colors, but you can customize the stripes however you like by adding extra color pops.  This shawl pattern is written in two different sizes: small (78 inch wingspan and 23 inches wide) and large (96 inch wingspan and 29 inches wide).
