Knitalong SYF 2020 – We knit a cardigan together!

To get the Swiss Yarn Festival into the right mood we have planned a Knitalong! We knit together on Instagram the “Walk in the Dawn Cardigan” which was specially designed for the festival.

How does the Knitalong work?

At the Knitalong the pattern”Walk in the Dawn Cardigan” is knitted by Asita Krebs. A cardigan with a mosaic hem.

The manual is available in 3 languages. German, English, French and will be published on October 29, 2019. Anyone who buys a kit from one of the exhibitors will receive the instructions free of charge.


Release: October 29, 2019
Start of the Knitalong: 15 November 2019
End of the Knitalong: 1 February 2020

condition of participation

Any national or international person who knits the “Walk in the Dawn Cardigan” may participate. No matter which yarn is used or if the person is a visitor of the Swiss Yarn Festival.

Participation is via Instagram. You can also chat and ask questions in the Sidispinnt Ravelry group during the Knitalong. However, the prizes will only be raffled via Instagram.

The Swiss Yarn Festival regularly shares entries with the hashtags below in their story and will keep it as a highlight.
