(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Hi Friends - we have decided to make all of our KALs virtual so you can join us for double the chance to win a giftcard and stay home and stay healthy in the meantime.


What is a make-a-long? Well, we are considering this make-a-long to include anything you make and share with us from now until we are back open or the end of April (TBA). Any new project that you make and share with us on instagram using the hashtags #jpksmaker and #jpksstayhomemal will get you an entry to win a JPKS giftcard for $20.
When we re-open, we will post and announce the winner!

Odyssey Shawl KAL Details (edited since we are going virtual - stay home and make this knit!)

Join us at Brato Brewhouse + Kitchen on Wednesday, March 4 from 6-8pm to cast on the Odyssey Shawl by Joji Locatelli for a two-month KAL! After you cast-on, we will be having weekly meetups for the month of March & April on Friday evenings from 6-8pm to work on our Odyssey Shawls. Join us for this KAL and finish by the end of April and you will be entered to win a $20 JPKS giftcard*!

Odyssey is a crescent shaped shawl in 3 colors of medium-weight yarn. Medium weight means DK, or worsted, or even Aran! The good news is that you knit it up super fast. Each color section ends with a lace band that features striking big eyelets and wavy texture. It works with MANY yarn weights, and with ANY yarn, but we suggest using Malabrigo's new Dos Tierras! If you do plan to use Dos Tierras - see all the notes below!

April 24 @ JPKS from 6-8pm

Pattern modifications
You will need to make small adjustments because the pattern as written uses a US 8 needle. In order not to run out of yarn, you will want to make sure that your gauge, after washing and blocking, is 17 sts per 4 inches and the finished sample measures 62.5” wingspan and 17” deep. Malabrigo's Sample Knitter used a US 8 needle to achieve this gauge, so it is extremely important that you match this gauge in your swatch before starting your project.  

*Prizes: You will be entered to win a $20 JPKS giftcard if you complete the wrap at the end of April (before or at our last meetup) and use at least one yarn bought at JPKS. You will also be entered to win a giftcard if you tag us on instagram using the hashtags #jpksmaker and #jpksstayhomemal.

If you want to try and win something from Malabrigo - participants will need to use the hashtag #malabrigoKAL to post pictures across all social media channels in order to be eligible for prizes and of course, the garment has to be knit using Malabrigo Dos Tierras. You must also sign up here!
