|HAVE YOU ALWAYS WANTED TO LEARN HOW TO KNIT?
ARE YOU WILLING TO TEACH A FRIEND TO KNIT?
NOW IS THE TIME!
Are you an established knitter who would love to share your passion?
Or, are you a person who admires all the fabulous things your knitter friends, family and co-workers are creating?
Join Skacel and Coastal Yarns on November 10, 2018, as we challenge the knitting community to create 10,000 New Knitters in one day! Skacel will be providing FREE kits to new knitters to make a pair of fingerless mitts in partnership with established knitters and your Local Yarn Shop.
As a new or established knitter, register by July 15th and you can pick up a free NEW KNIT KIT from Coastal Yarns on November 10th. Then, either stay for your free knitting lesson, or learn on your own or with a friend!
Established knitters can use this kit to teach someone how to knit on November 10th! By pairing a new knitter with a source of help, they will be more likely to finish the project and develop their skills further.
Sign up by Sunday, July 15th, and then stop in the shop to pick up your FREE knitting kit on Saturday, November 10th.
Kits are available for in-store pickup only, and will not be shipped.
If you would like free instruction, register today for an in-shop lesson - we will only have 5 spots available per session for one-on-one help, so the sooner you sign up, the sooner your lesson spot is saved just for you!
We will have 4 group sessions available on November 10th:
Session 1 from 10:00am - 12:00pm
Session 2 from 12:00pm - 2:00pm
Session 3 from 2:00pm - 4:00pm
Session 4 from 4:00pm - 6:00pm
Again, these sessions are completely free to register for! All of the materials and instruction are included with each session, we just need to know who will commit to being or teaching a new knitter!
Be sure to share your experience via social media by tagging @10000NewKnitters and using #10000NewKnitters in your posts!
ABOUT THE PROJECT
Learn the the two most important stitches in knitting: the Knit and Purl stitches!
Each mitt is made in one piece and then seamed to create the thumb hole.
The Special Edition HiKoo® Sueño Worsted yarn is already wound into a ball so new knitters can get right to work! Available in 'Natural' to make seeing your stitches easy; suitable for any gender!
Using the color coded addi® Linos straight needles, learning the difference between the Right Side (outside of the fabric) and Wrong Side (inside of the fabric) is a breeze!
As an added bonus, we've also included helpful instruction on how to read the ball band that comes on the yarn. This knowledge gives new knitters a great foundation in understanding 'knitters lingo'.
Each kit comes with the following:
One ball of Special Edition Sueño Worsted in 'Natural'
One pair of US8 (5mm) addi Linos straight needles
Exclusive beginner-friendly fingerless mitt pattern
Bonus Instruction: How to Read a Ball Band
Note: One kit makes one pair of fingerless mitts.
