Home and Away Knit-A-Long: Hancock
March 1st–April 15th, 2017
February 2nd through February 14th: Order the yarn, needles and a copy of the book now through February 14th. Everything will arrive in the store (or straight to your doorstep!) with plenty of time for you to cast on by March 1st. When you’re done, we’ll expect to see finished shots of you and your sweater! Email us at firstname.lastname@example.org or post on our Facebook page.
Help every Thursday: We’ll be devoting our Thursday evening Open Knitting to the Hancock KAL March 1st–April 15th–we’ll be here to help you if you get in a rut or need help navigating the pattern, but primarily it’ll be a chance for us to motivate each other.
15% Discount: the book, the needles AND the yarn. We’ll be knitting ours with Quince & Co. Finch, a fingering weight wool yarn that’s 100% grown, spun and dyed in the USA.
Prizes: Every single participant who completes their sweater by 11:59 p.m. on April 15th will receive a Knit Kit pictured below (our choice of either pink, blue or green–not pictured) AND every single participant who completes their sweater will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, to use in-house or online.

Hancock celebrates the comfort of garter stitch, with an extra-wide knitted collar. Fingering weight yarn knitted at a looser gauge contributes to a lightweight garment.
The pictured sweater was knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces.
If you are in-between sizes, we suggest sizing down for an open cardigan like this one. When choosing your size, it’s always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.
Fingering weight sweater? Fear not! This design is knitted at a loose gauge.

Finch is a little sprite, a fingering-weight with the slightest of halos. It’s soft to the touch, yet its neatly twisted plies give it a smooth, tailored finish thats sturdy and hardwearing. It’s perfectly balanced for an even stockinette stitch, and you’ll love how it shows off texture and lace patterns. Perfect for Fair Isle, too
