Info and Rules for the Hello Kitty Knitalong:

This is a knitalong for people that Y Hello Kitty. The Hello Kitty Outfit designed by Oslofia includes: sweater, hat, mittens, legwarmers and a handbag. The set is designed in the sizes: 3, 6/9 and 12/18 months, 2 and 3 years. The sweater pattern will also have a description for a “super easy” version for those that doesn’t want to knit Intarsia. You may even add the Hello Kitty ‘theme’ to other sweater patterns than the one designed by me. This will enable you to knit the set in other sizes that’s not provided for in this knitalong. All the 3 different descriptions are included in the pattern. I, Oslofia will be the host of this knitalong, and I will distribute the patterns (for free) to the participating knitters by e-mail.

You may knit as much or as little of the items that you want. However, the ones that knit all the items will receive a ’secret’ Hello Kitty bonuspattern that will fit an adult. PS! I’m thinking big’n warm…stylish in the Oslofia way =)

The set has only (yet) been knitted in size 3 years, so I can’t guarantee that the set is a 100% accurate in the other sizes. Please report back to me on how the other sizes ‘went’, what type of yarn you used, and how much yarn you used. I will also appreciate it if you e-mail me suggestions on improvements, or any faults you may discover so that I can update the pattern.
