The 4 Day Sweater Challenge by Olive Knits! IN PERSON at LYS with Christie!

The 4 Day Sweater Challenge by Olive Knits is back at LYS for the 4th 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 DK weight sweater that enhances your wardrobe.

This year we are excited to be back in community and knitting together at Longmont Yarn Shoppe.  Please join us on the 3 KAL days for fun, a special Swag Bag and community! 

Homework/Pre-work - Please complete the neck ribbing before the first meeting.  

About this year’s design - message from Marie Greene- designer

It’s been five years since that first long weekend when I thought maybe I’d try to knit a sweater in four days. It was a silly personal challenge and I had no idea that it would become an annual event that drew together a remarkable community of knitters around the globe. The 4 Day Knitalong has never been about 4 days – not really. It’s about knitting a sweater faster than you thought we could – and doing it with the energy, enthusiasm, and support of the Olive Knits community.

This year, with hope on the horizon, we’re embracing the 5th Annual 4 Day Knitalong with renewed energy and joy. Join us for the knitting party of the year – a celebration of life, friendship, and brighter days. Fireworks is a celebration in the stitches!
