Butterfly Kisses KAL

Improve your knitting skills and make a cozy set of mitts and an earwarmer with the Butterfly Kisses KAL hosted by The Chilly Dog.
I am happy to announce my second, skill building knit along, the Butterfly Kisses KAL. This February, we'll be making my Butterfly Kisses earwarmer and fingerless mitts set and I am going to walk you through each step of the pattern with helpful tutorials.

Butterfly Kisses Required Skills

There are a few things you should be able to do before starting this KAL:
  • knit and purl
  • work in the round
  • use dpns (or circular needles if you are already familiar with the magic loop method)

KAL Calendar

Each week we'll be focusing on new skills that will help you complete an earwarmer headband and then a pair of mitts. Here's the schedule (the links won't be active until the date listed next to them).

Week 1 - Pattern Release

Week 2 - Earwarmer

Week 3 - Finishing the Earwarmer/Starting the Mitts

Week 4 - The Hand

Week 5 - All Thumbs

Pattern Release

Sections of the pattern will be posted with each lesson. A printable version of the entire Butterfly Kisses Pattern will be available for purchase in my shop on February 1, 2018. 

Materials

Many thanks to Skacel for providing me with the HiKoo Sueño yarn and addi Natura knitting needles I used to design this KAL!

Before starting the KAL you'll need:
  • 2 skeins of Skacel HiKoo Sueño in your favorite solid, tonal or hand-dyed color
  • US size 4 (3.5 mm) addi Natura dpns
  • stitch markers
  • yarn or tapestry needle

Finished Measurements

The Butterfly Kisses pattern is one size fits most.
  • earwarmer - 2 1/2 inches wide x 19 inches in circumference (this can be made longer if desired)
  • mitts - 7 inches long x 7 1/2 inches in circumference
To make sure your set will fit properly, make a gauge swatch before the KAL begins. 24 stitches or 30 rows = 4 inches in stockinette stitch.
