How Do the Knitalongs (KALs) Work?
KnitFreedom knitalongs (KALs) are a way to get extra help on a project, take part in your KnitFreedom community, and enjoy knitting a project all together.
When you enroll in a knitalong, you'll need to invest in the associated video class to have access to the lessons and videos. As a member of the KAL, you'll receive helpful emails breaking down the class into bite-sized chunks to help you work through the class chapters at a reasonable pace.
You'll also have a place to leave comments and ask questions of the KnitFreedom knitting experts, and get encouragement, motivation, and support around your project.
Frequent Knitalong Questions:
When is the deadline?
There is none! Everyone learns at their own pace, so feel free to take all the time you need to finish your KAL project. Since all your learning materials are part of the class, you can access them for years after the KAL wraps up. Knit at your own pace, and feel free to chime in with fellow KAL members on our blog posts.
How do I keep track of the KAL?
The KAL will be conducted through email newsletters, each with extra tips and tricks to help you with your project. These emails serve as reminders of where we are in the project, but are by no means mandatory steps. If you find yourself too busy, you can always return to the emails in your inbox at a later date to start over again! You can find the same lessons and ask questions on your knitalong lessons page (access via your My Classes page).
When do I knit for my KAL?
KnitFreedom KALs are self-paced, so you can start knitting as soon as you have your materials.
Are KALs included in the Knitting Superstar course?
No, they are not. KALs may only be accessed through investing in either Premium membership, or the KAL course.
Do I have to use the same yarn and needles you do?
We only ask that you use yarn and materials that match the gauge and fiber content of what we suggest. This is so the finished object matches the pattern specifications, and so that you get all the best wear out of your project. For example, you wouldn’t want to knit a pair of felted slippers out of a plant fiber like cotton.
As long as you are using the correct size needle for the project, knitting needles of all materials and brands will work perfectly fine for our KALs.
