Selfish Sweater KAL - January 2021

Sold out


What better way to kick off the New Year than knitting with friends?

In celebration of Selfish Knitting Month, we’ll be starting and finishing that sweater we’ve been dying to make but has been abandoned in our queue for far too long. 

Whether you haven’t been able to carve out the time, lost your knitting mojo (probably between the couch cushions), or are just feeling a little anxious about flying solo, this is the perfect opportunity to get the accountability, friendly encouragement, and skilled support that will make this a fun-filled project from the first stitch to the final bind-off. 

If the feedback from our previous KALs is anything to go by, you might even find yourself finishing in record time (umm...or finishing a big project for the first know who you are)!

Get in on the #SelfishSweaterKAL and have a blast knitting along with designer Anne Hanson, as well as other knitters from across the U.S. (and even abroad). We'll be using Ravelry forums as well as ZOOM video meetings to "get together," chat and show off our progress.

Plus, your KAL registration fee gets you a FREE Anne Hanson design of your choice and the chance to win one of these fabulous prizes...*


  • Grand Prize -  $75 BNW Gift Certificate*  
  • 2nd Prize - Knitting Kit with a custom project bag, 1 skein of yarn and a Knitspot pattern*
  • 3rd Prize- Knitspot Design eBook (your choice!)*

What do you need to do for a chance to win?

  • Wait until the start date to cast on and complete your new sweater on or before the end date
  • Use either a Knitspot design or Bare Naked Wools Yarn
  • Post your gorgeous new FO in the Ravelry Group Thread by the end date

Want even more chances to win? You got it! Get an extra entry to win for tagging us on social with a picture of your project (Instagram or Facebook - just use @barenakedwools and #SelfishSweaterKAL). 


Rules? What rules?

We're light on rules and big on fun here. Participants just need to use an Anne Hanson sweater pattern OR a Bare Naked Wools yarn to knit their project to participate. (Of course, you can also choose to use both our yarn and our patterns :D But, that's totally up to you.)

And while prizes are only awarded for new cast-ons that are finished—you're welcome to come on over with your WIPs if you just want a little company—there’s room for everyone. 

That means this KAL is wide open to your creativity!

Can't you just imagine all the cozy, wonderful possibilities?

We can't wait! 

January will be here before you know it! So sign up, and get your supplies ready, because this KAL starts soon! 

START DATE: Cast on no sooner than Friday, January 1, 2021

END DATE: Saturday, March 6, 2021
