Knitalong SYF 2024 – We knit a shirt together

To get you in the mood for the Swiss Yarn Festival, we have planned a knit-along! We will knit the “Cordelia Tee” together on Instagram, which was specially designed for the festival.

How does the Knitalong work?

The pattern “Cordelia Tee” by Simone Ryan will be knitted during the Knitalong. The shirt is knitted seamlessly from the top down and consists of elegant simple cables. There is a short and a long version.

The Pattern is available in 3 languages. German, English and French and will be published on 9 December 2023. Everyone who buys a kit from one of the exhibitors will receive the pattern for free.


Release: 9 December 2023
Start of the Knitalong: 6 January 2024
End of the Knitalong: 31 March 2024

Conditions of participation

Any national or international person who knits the “Cordelia Tee” may take part. Regardless of which yarn is used or whether the person is a visitor to the Swiss Yarn Festival.

Participation is via Instagram. There is an Instagram chat and a Ravelry group for the exchange during the Knitalong. However, the prizes will only be raffled via Instagram.

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