Selfish Sweater KAL 2016



Last year’s Selfish Sweater KAL felt like the perfect remedy for post-holiday blues and dark, winter blahs, so I’m delighted to announce that I will be running it again! The Selfish Sweater KAL will start Boxing Day and run until Valentine’s Day, December 26th to February 14th. The idea behind the Selfish Sweater KAL is to knit yourself a treat after you’ve finished all of your holiday gift knitting. This year we’ll be knitting cardigans. Any cardigan pattern designed by me is eligible for the KAL. You can choose from Agatha, Anouk, Armande, Conservatory, From A to Z, Henriette, Hetty, Hortencia, Marion, Mary Mead, Miette, Myrna, Penelope, Plain Jane, Sunshower, Vianne, and Zinnia. All individual Untangling Knots cardigan patterns that can be used in the KAL are 20% off until the KAL begins on the 26th. Just use the coupon code SSK2016 when you check out on Ravelry, and come join us in the Untangling Knots group on Ravelry for the fun chit-chat.


That’s quite a long list so I wish you luck picking a favorite! I’m leaning towards knitting myself a new Henriette because I spilled coffee on the original and stained it. It was an unfortunate incident, but I’m mostly surprised that this was the first time it happened! Are you going to join in? Which cardigan do you want to knit?

    Great! In my wish list Anouk or Myrna.
    I just have finished my Penelope 😀

  5. Can’t wait! I was already planning to knit a miette in the new year anyway so it will be great to have some company! It will be my first Cardigan so i’m sure I will have plenty questions!

    1. KALs are a great time to try something new! Lots of questions are totally welcome.

    Definitely going to join in this, up until now I’ve always knitted more for others than myself, I have Miette and Hetty, so I think an Agatha is up next. Looking forward to the knit along.

    So I’m trying to purchase the Agatha pattern, is the coupon code no longer good? Thanks

    1. As noted in the post, the coupon code expired on the 26th.

    I’m working on my Armande. I’ve been in love with this since I first saw it. Was a bit nervous about pockets and the knit-in sleeves, but decided to try something new in 2016. Also I’m a bit of a moron when it comes to computer stuff. I haven’t been able to figure out how to join the KAL and have my ravelry posts link up.

    1. All you have to do is post in the thread on Ravelry if you want to share there and use the hashtag on social media. There’s no real linking up to do.
