Spring Charity KAL/CAL Update

Our first-ever  Spring Charity KAL/CAL  has been a huge success, and we owe it all to our wonderful knitters and crocheters who spent the entire month of May making blocks to donate to  Warm Up America !

Here's what our fantastic group of knitters and crocheters accomplished in just 31 days: 
  • 603 knitted blocks completed, which is enough to make 30 baby blankets or 12 adult-sized blankets!
  • 116 crocheted blocks completed, which is enough to make 5 baby blankets or 2 adult-sized blankets!
  • A grand total of 719 blocks which can be made into 35 baby blankets or 14 adult-sized blankets!

Summer of Shawls

Shawls are great projects for summer because they are lightweight and many can be made using that single special skein of yarn you've been saving in your stash. Here, we share some of our favorite FREE patterns (and more!) for knitting and crocheting gorgeous shawls. 

Shawl Shapes
Recently, we covered 6 popular shawl shapes and shared our fave patterns for each here on the Knitter's Pride blog, featuring both knitted and crocheted options!
