Our Knit Alongs are getting pretty popular! Thank god, because it gives me an excuse to keep doing them. We’ve knit some beautiful sweaters together! The Beatnik and my Two Boyfriends Cardigan, Make Up Your Mind and The Loop Entrelac Tank, and we just finished our Aidez cardigans, so we’ve got a lot to live up to!

Last fall we held a vote for our next KAL sweater. Aidez BARELY beat out Delancey, so I figured let’s do it! Delancey Cardigan it is!

Delancey Cardigan by Alexis Winslow

And I’ve loved this sweater since I saw it over a year ago, and since I’m the boss what I say goes. Something tells me you are all pretty pumped, too.

More good news? Alexis Winslow, the super talented designer behind this pattern, has been kind enough to offer KALers a couple coupon codes! When you purchase the Delancey Cardigan pattern on ravelry, use coupon code DELANCEY50 for 50% off the pattern price.

OR, if you’ve got your eye on the Delancey Cardigan and another of Alexis’s patterns, use coupon code DELANCEYBOGO to get them buy one, get one free. These coupon codes are good until the KAL kicks off on February 6th.

CUTE Cardi!

Fun, right? I can’t wait to get started!

The Delancey Cardigan is part of the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program, so Knit Picks makes it really easy to pick out the yarn for this sweater. Use the kit builder to chose your size, then chose between Capra, Swish DK, and City Tweed DK right on that page. Any DK weight will work for Delancey, of course, so feel free to substitute at will.

Knit Picks Swish DK

I’m going a little crazy with my colors! I’ve picked Knit Picks Swish DK in Gulfstream as my main color. I wanted a bright yellow as my contrasting color, but since the yellow Swish DKs were sold out and unavailable for months, I slipped over to Brava Sport and scooped up their Canary!

Sweet, right? Take a peek at the finished projects on ravelry for color ideas. This sweater looks awesome in such a wide verity of color combinations, so don’t be afraid to pump it up.

Our Winter KAL kicks off in three weeks! We’re casting on Monday, February 6th, so get your yarn ordered, gauge up, and get ready to knit up this beautiful cardigan!

And a huge thank you to Alexis for offering her pattern as a discount for us. Be sure to say hi to her at her blog and on twitter!
