Update Jan 28, 2019: We now have a GIVEAWAY for those who complete this KAL, generously provided by Estelle Designs. You'll need to view our Intro/Part 1 YouTube video to get all the details!
That's right! We're hosting a Riverdale-themed KNITALONG, in both of our shops, and online. If you're anything like us, you're obsessed with the saturated colours and drama of the classic Archie comic book characters in the modern-day TV show, Riverdale. I've certainly been eyeing up Jughead's knit version of the whoopee hat since it started, and I'm super excited to introduce it for our first knitalong.
But first - some background. What is a whoopee hat, and how come it has that strange jagged edge around the brim? Welp, we've got a history lesson for ya:
WOW, right? Who knew??!!
Now that you're fully educated on just how cool this hat really was (is?), it's time to join in our knitalong. But how, you ask? Read on!
As the KAL progress, links to blog posts explaining the next steps will be posted underneath each date listed below. Be sure to bookmark this page, subscribe to the blog, and/or ensure you're a member of, and following, the Facebook Group so you don't miss any steps.
Should you need help with the W&T, help is available during our Wednesday and Thursday knitting socials in Whitby, Wednesday afternoons from 1-3 PM in Cobourg, and on Saturdays from 3 to 5 PM in Cobourg.
For all those whom have entered our Giveaway and complete the KAL (final project photos* uploaded to Ravelry by EOD Feb 23rd), we will be drawing two names on February 24th via Live Video streaming (probably on Facebook, link will be updated). Two winners will have 48 hours to claim their prizes.
*What counts as a final project photo? Your hat is completed, the seams sewn up and ends woven in, and your photo shows the completed item. It does NOT have to be blocked, but of course it'll help your finished item look nicer!
