Make a Sweater in 4 Days! Join Olive Knits' 4-day Knit Along
Olive Knits 4-day Knitalongs are the best! There is something magical about taking on an "impossible" challenge with a lot of other people to cheer you on. And Marie Greene (aka Olive Knits) provides lots of support (and prizes!) along the way.
This year's pattern (I've seen it, you are going to love it!) uses DK weight yarn. We have so much to choose from right now, but sweater quantities don't last long so take a look at our website soon: https://stringtheoryyarncompany.com/collections/dk
Liz is all about texture so she is going to make the store sample in Harrisville Daylights. This soft, lofty yarn with great stitch definition is going to be perfect!
For luxurious softness, you'll want the hand-painted Alma DK or classic Woolfolk Far (Woolfolk Far is technically worsted but it would knit up beautifully at this gauge.)
I'm going to swatch Manos Alpaca Heather. I've been wanting a sweater in this for ages. I'll let you know how it works.

We had so much fun putting together these ideas! Here is what we came up with:

We've been told that the hardest part about knitting is deciding what to make, so we came up with 6 projects we love. At least one of them is going to be perfect for you and someone on your list

The first thing I do before every trip is plan out my knitting. We’ve talked before about how your trip deserves a new project, not the one that you are bored with.
