The Knit-Along kicks off today, June 30th, and the printed pattern is available at both Brooklyn General and Argyle Yarn Shop. Care to join us from abroad? Folks across the country are joining in! Check out a special page for the Knit-Along on our web store for links to the pattern, project bag, and yarn recommendations.
Argyle and Brooklyn General will take turns hosting knitting parties on Tuesday evenings, plus we're throwing a "Brooklyn Blossom" contest with three chances to win a prize!
The shawl is a joyful asymmetrical triangle with several textures in an easy to follow pattern that is perfect for summer relaxation in the sun. A breeze to knit, it highlights the vibrant and luxurious quality of hand dyed yarn and allows makers to create their own color combinations to enhance, contrast or subdue as desired.
Recommended Yarn: Any fingering weight you desire.
Yardage: Color A 378 yds, Color B 378 yds, Color C 200 yards
Size 6 32" circular needle.
To add to the fun we've decided to co-host a contest.
(If you'd just like to join us for the Knit-Along, no worries! You'll just need to grab the pattern and some fingering yarn and start knitting).
But if you'd like to enter the contest, here's the rules:

• Participants must purchase the three skeins required to make the shawl from either BGS or Argyle.
• Knit and complete at least one Brooklyn Blossom shawl between 7/1/2017 and 9/1/2017. You may enter as many Brooklyn Blossom shawls in the contest as you like.
• When you are finished, tag your finished photo with #BklynKALcontest2017
• Winners will be chosen on 9/5/2017 based on the number of "likes" they get on Instagram. If you are not on Instagram, just send us your photo and we will post it for you via either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com .
