YG Cable Cardi KAL

Announcing our next KAL... YG Cable Cardi KAL!

Cardigans and cables… is there anything better than combining a great textured stitch pattern with a cozy, snuggly cardigan? I am thrilled to be leading our next KAL, with your choice of two different pattern options. Feel confident in making either one, as both cardigans will be knit by a KAL leader: I’ll be knitting Oban and Karen Collins will be knitting Sandstone Peak. Check out the patterns on Ravelry below!

Sandstone Peak by Irina Anikeeva

This will be another hybrid KAL, with weekly meetings on Wednesday evenings from 5:30 – 7ish, alternating between in-person and Zoom meetings. There will be a Zoom meeting open during our in-person meetings as well. I am planning to cast on together on Wednesday, November 16th. This will be an in-person event with a Zoom component for our non-local friends!

The cost for this KAL is FREE, but I do ask that you purchase your supplies for the cardigan from Yarn Garden. By supporting YG with your yarn purchase, you’re helping ensure that we can stay open to continue offering these fabulous events. Once you've made your purchase, you'll be given access to our private Facebook group, where the KAL will take place.

Yarn Options

I will likely need to order yarn for you, so please get in touch with me by Saturday, November 5th with your choice. Of course, I’m always happy to help you choose!

Oban Cardigan – calls for a worsted to aran weight yarn. I recommend Germantown or Lucky Tweed from Kelbourne Woolens, Lanas from Berroco, or Alegria Grande from Manos del Uruguay.

Sandstone Peak Cardigan – calls for a dk to light worsted weight yarn. I recommend Scout by Kelbourne Woolens or Clever Gnome by Gnome River Yarns.

If you have any questions, please get in touch via email (, shop phone (517-541-9323) or YG's Facebook Page!
