Please join us for our 2014 Knit-A-Long
Bergere de France Poncho 286.57
Beginning January 1st, 2014, we will start a new KAL. By popular demand, we have selected this gorgeous cabled poncho from Bergere. We will be working on this kal January - March. This is quite an undertaking and will be fun to knit with a group. You do not have to be "in-town" to participate. We will keep in touch on Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter, and on our web-site where we can share pictures of our progress.
We have selected several different yarns in the correct weight of 16 gauge. These choices will give you different price ranges to choose from. The yarn will be ordered on November 1st, 2013, to ensure time for the yarn to arrive in the store and get it distributed so we can all cast on together on January 1st. Yes, you will need to do a gauge swatch prior to beginning the project.
Payment in full will be required prior to the yarn being ordered. If not paid in full, payments can be made between now and October 31st. Your final decision on the yarn you wish to use and the color of yarn does not have to be made until the last week of October. Once this yarn is ordered, there will be no refund or exchange related to this project.
The 4 types of yarn we will be using are:
The pattern has 2 sizes, Small/Medium requiring 1479 yards and Large/X-Large requiring 1740 yards.
