Barton KAL to begin June 1 - with Marly Bird teaching!

I'm very excited to report that designer extraordinare, Marly Bird, will teach the Barton KAL! If you've longed to work directly with a designer in creating a special sweater, join the Ravelry Barton KAL group

Marly, the amazing designer responsible for so many beautiful plus-size designs, will begin the KAL on June 1, covering topics such as garment construction, cast-on techniques, understanding the charts, and more.

I started my Barton swatch. Isn't Bijou Basin Bliss blissfully beauteous? Love the color which is perfect for my winter coloring.

I'm really looking forward to the Barton KAL and am grateful to Marly for working with our intrepid knitters. Now it's time to finish up the Waltham before the Barton begins!


  1. Your swatch looks great! Beautiful yarn!!!
    I will be following along with the Barton KAL but probably not making the sweater. I think I need a break!

  2. I too will be following along! I'm afraid the Barton is way out of my league, so I will be working on 'works in progress" which are several.
    I love the color!!!
