Stitch.Rock.Knit-along: "Shrug It Off" Photo Recap!

Supplies ready to go!

Another Knit Simple/Bernat Stitch.Rock.Knit-along has come an a close, and as always I left feeling inspired. This issue’s project was 90% crochet, which as the “Stitch.Rock.Knit-along” title suggests, isn’t of the norm for this series. I was thrilled to see that the new-to-some craft didn’t scare away most of the regulars, and we even had a few knew participants because of it! I love being able to peek at everyone’s progress, give tips, share tutorials and otherwise virtually commune with other stitchers. It’s an honor and a joy to be the leader of these events. Without further ado, here’s a photo recap of the highlights of the Shrug It Out a-long!

How-to Get Started:

I didn’t this video up on my YouTube channel, because it’s quick-and-dirty, and frankly not pretty.  Click here though, to watch how to pick up stitches for this project.
