What's A Knit-Along?

A Knit-Along (or “KAL”) is when a group of knitters work on the same project at the same time, learning from and supporting each other along the way. For this KAL, we'll be casting on for our Bandana Cowl, a much-loved free pattern that uses our Plenty. As you work, we'll send you occasional emails to keep you on track and will also invite you to meet-ups on Zoom for some real-time chats.


What To Expect

The official cast on day is October 13th, 2022, but knitters can join at any time between now and November 30th, 2022. The KAL will last seven weeks, with the goal to finish your Bandana Cowl by November 30th, 2022.


We'll be sending you emails full of useful info, including links to relevant tutorials and reminders about our giveaways. We’ll also be hosting Zoom meetings for KAL-ers to see each other’s smiling faces and gorgeous WIPs! Click here to sign up for the next one, which is on Thursday, December 1st at 6pm Eastern/3pm Pacific.


Don’t worry if you’re joining after the official cast-on day. There’s plenty of time to catch up, and you’ll still receive emails and invites!


We all want to see each other’s progress, so be sure to share on Instagram with the hashtags #PurlSohoKAL and #PurlSohoBandanaCowl, and you can upload your photos right here, too. We can't wait to see what you make!


The Bandana Cowl is a one-skein, super fun knit that makes a wonderful gift. Our Plenty super fine merino comes in lots of gorgeous colors… Use just one for classic Bandana Cowl or branch out with color blocks, stripes, Fair Isle, or duplicate stitch. We love to see what you come up with, so have some fun with it!
