Join the Latest Yarnbox Learn-A-Long!

Learn-a-longs are always so much fun!  It's a time where you can stretch your skills, ask questions from others who have mastered techniques, and support one another as you take on the challenge of something new.  We're excited to have not just one but four learn-a-longs happening now on Ravelry, all by member request!

Continental Knitting
The first question we often hear when one knitter meets another is “do you knit English or Continental?” or “do you throw your yarn or pick?” Why not know both?!

If you’ve always wanted to try continental knitting, this is the place to start. Our moderators will be lending a hand to help you along and will post links to videos with tips to get you started. Even those who have been knitting continental may find a useful tip or two as well! This is also a great place for crocheters who may want to try their hand at a little knitting. All are welcome to share in some needlework love!

Beginning Crochet
Whether you’re already crocheting or itching to learn because of some of the beautiful patterns we’ve featured, this is the LAL for you!
 
Tips on how to start a project, the basic stitches that are the building block of crochet, and shared tips from others are what you’ll find here. Our moderators will be lending a hand to help you along and will post links to videos with tips to get you started. All are welcome to share in some needlework love!

Knitting Colorwork
Many of us are captivated when we see a knit piece made with colorwork but where do we start with our own projects? We’re here to take the plunge with you as you dive into your first colorwork project. Our moderators will be lending a hand to help you along and will post links to videos with tips to get you started and encourage you along the way. Let’s get ready to do some colorwork together!

Crochet Cables
Cables aren’t just for knits! If you’ve been crocheting but were unsure about trying a pattern with cables, then this is the place for you. We’re here to help you take a leap and try your hand at your first crochet cable project. Hats, scarves, and more! Our moderators will be lending a hand to help you along and will post links to videos with tips to get you started and encourage you along the way. Get your hooks ready to start those cables!

These learn-a-longs run from February 8 - May 1, 2016. This is a casual LAL so jump in and join any time!  You can use any yarn you’d like. This is a community-building KAL/CAL, not about prizes or competition. Use something from stash, buy something new, or use Yarnbox yarns if you have them!

Share your LAL projects with us on Ravelry, Facebook, Twitter (@MyYarnbox) and Instagram (@yarnbox) and tag your projects with #yblearnalong so we can see your posts!
