The official pattern will be delivered on 6/15/20. The KAL officially starts on 7/1/20. Each year a big group of knitters knit a sweater in 4 days (or try to, no one cares if it takes longer). This year the pattern is using two yarns but no colorwork!! It uses one main color and slip stitches/mosiac stitches for the 2nd color. An advanced beginner would be able to knit this sweater.
