April 26th-May 13th: Order the yarn and needles now through May 13th. Everything will arrive in the store (or straight to your doorstep!) with plenty of time for you to cast on by June 1st. When you’re done, we’ll expect to see finished shots of you and your sweater! Email us at email@example.com, use #woolandhoney on Instagram or post on our Facebook page.
Help every Thursday: We’ll be devoting our Thursday evening Open Knitting to the Mon Manet KAL–June 1-June 30th–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 needles AND the yarn. We’ll be knitting ours with Nice & Knit Worsted, a worsted weight superwash wool yarn that’s soft, bright and happy.
Prizes: Every single participant who completes their sweater will receive the kit pictured below (a witty project bag [knitter’s choice of phrases, as pictured below], a bottle of Twig & Horn wool wash and a set of our signature brass hex stitch markers–a $38 value) AND every single participant who completes their sweater will be entered in a drawing to win a $50 gift certificate to Wool & Honey, to use in-house or online.
No need to use a coupon code at checkout–the discount is already applied.

Mon Manet is worked from top to bottom as one piece using circular needles. It is knitted as a regular stockinette stitch sweater and then turned inside out – in the end, the purl side is the right side. We love this sweater for its casual yet effortless fit, its modern simplicity and our favorite part? A blank canvas for speckles!
The Mon Manet pattern was written by Jonna Hietala, co-founder and editor of Laine Magazine.
