Have you ever wished you could get knitting help at the precise moment you needed it?

 

Do you want to be a better, more confident knitter?

 

We’re here to help!


 

We started leading knit alongs a few years ago, and quickly noticed how beneficial they are for knitters who want to improve their skills. Our knitters were knitting patterns they never thought they could! They had the confidence to cast on because they knew they could count on our help and support along the way.

A knit along (KAL) is an informal class. Everyone in the KAL works on the same project, but at their own pace, within a given timeframe. 

Our KALs feature both in-person support for those who live nearby, and thorough online support for anyone, anywhere, to take advantage of at anytime.

 

What to expect in the MHF KAL Club:

  • labelSupport to improve your knitting
    • labelLearn what you need, when you need it. How many times have you taken a technique class and forgotten how to do it by the time you started a project using that technique?
    • labelCurated videos and websites to ensure you learn proper techniques without the hassle of searching the internet
    • labelExplanations of unclear instructions and tricky techniques used in the pattern
    • labelQ&A forums. We’ll answer your specific questions.
    • labelSupport through the entire project. This isn’t a class where you start the project, only to be confounded by a technique further on in the project after the class is over. We help you every step of the way.
  • labelMotivation to finish your projects
  • labelHuge savings over attending classes – no travel expenses, no expensive class fees
  • labelConvenience: Learn from the comfort of your home at anytime – day or night

 Vagabond Fingerless Mitts KAL Details

The Vagabond Fingerless Mitts are a striking design incorporating Fair Isle, Latvian, and Scandinavian knitting techniques. There’s a lot to learn in this small project but don’t worry, we’ll help you every step of the way!

Size : Women’s medium

Vagabond is designed to have a close fit and will accommodate many sizes simply by adjusting the length of the hand above the thumb. It’s quite stretchy in the merino and will fit most, but the width can also be adjusted by going up or down a needle size, or removing and adding stitches to either side of hand chart and palm stripes.

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Read a colorwork chart
  • Knit with 2 colors at a time
  • Do a Latvian braid
  • Knit Fair Isle
  • Knit a double thumb gusset
  • Knit a corrugated rib
  • Use a lifeline to avoid ripping out all your work

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off in the round prior to starting this KAL.

Recommended Supplies

  • Two skeins of medium weight fingering yarn (110 yds of each). A third color can be added to the cuff if you choose.
  • 1.5 US / 2.5 mm double pointed needles, or size needed to obtain gauge – or whatever style needle you prefer for knitting in the round
  • Scrap yarn to hold thumb stitches and for a lifeline
  • Stitch markers


Kelmscott KAL Details

The sophisticated design of the Kelmscott Cardigan makes it perfect for special occasions. This is a sweater that will turn heads!

Inspired by the decorative patterns of William Morris and the Arts and Crafts movement. The sweater is knit in 6 pieces from the bottom up, with front lace panels set off by reverse stockinette; and lace detail at the sleeve cuffs and center back.

Finished measurements: Chest sizes 33 (37,41, 45, 49, 53). It is intended to be worn with 1-2″ of ease.

In this KAL you will learn how to:

  • Make a proper swatch to test your gauge to make sure your sweater fits
  • Knit a sweater in pieces and seam them together for a professional finish
  • Knit lace
  • Read knitting charts
  • Read your knitting so you can always tell what row you are on
  • Use a lifeline so you never have to rip all your work out again
  • Knit short rows to create a flattering fit
  • Crochet an easy slip stitch trim to stabilize the sweater
  • Crochet button covers to create buttons that match your sweater perfectly

Participants must know how to cast on, knit, purl, and bind off prior to starting this KAL. Additionally, participants should have done at least one lace project prior to beginning this sweater.

Recommended Supplies

  • 1096-1644 yds of worsted weight yarn – we recommend Paulie Worsted by Shalimar Yarns (60% SW Merino, 20% Camel, 10% Cashmere, 10% Silk; 100g, 200 yds). Malabrigo Rios (100% SW Merino; 100g, 210 yds) is our 2nd choice.
  • US 7 and 9 needles (or size needed to obtain gauge).
  • Stitch markers
  • Yarn needle
  • Size C (2.75 mm) crochet hook
  • 4 lightweight 1/2″ (12.5 mm) buttons
  • Waste yarn

About Us

I’m Beth Bohnert and I own a successful yarn store and raise Cashmere goats and Shetland sheep on Mountain Hollow Farm in Tazewell, TN with my husband, Brett. I love teaching and have helped hundreds of people to improve their knitting skills since opening our store in 2010.

Angela Schramm was one of my first customers. She took the very first class I ever offered – a crochet class – then immediately signed up for my second class to learn to knit. She’s been knitting ever since and joined me to work in the store in 2011.
