Knit along cardigan

How do I access the video for the cardigan . Also, when I click on "week One" of the KAL post there is nothing there. I have my yarn and the printed pattern so I'm anxious to get started.

Thank you,

Knit Along

I have never joined a group before,am looking forward to this. I also am retired about 2 years now and have been knitting hats for a church nonprofit. JoAnn's is having a big sale and I am going tomorrow to get my yarn.

Simple is the key...

Gotta' love a pattern that is only two short pages! I'm not a big knitter but this pattern looks very do-able ---even for me. Thanks for a quick and easy pattern that will keep even MY attention. ....justwannacraft,CathyM

Gorgeous Sweater!

I love it now to figure out what I am going to knit it in...hmm have some gorgeous cotton I can use.

Great choice! I love this yarn and am going to make this project in Chamois. This will be the third time I have used it. Eco-Ways makes an almost velvety fabric, and the colors are unique. It's easy to work with, knit or crochet, and I have never encountered knots in the skein. Nice pattern; it will go fast (although I am also working on the Lace and Garter Cardigan in Almond, so I'll have nice sweaters to wear in a chilly office this summer). Thanks for choosing a pattern that comes in sizes for everyone!
