I can't tell you how many times we've heard 'If only I could knit!' But the truth is anyone can, and in May we thought it would be fun to knit a romper along with you. You don't have to be a beginner to join in, but if you are ~ we will be making a series of videos to get you started and we'll also be anyswering any questions you fire at us as we go!
What are we knitting?
The Etive Romper ~ Why? Firstly because we love it; no matter how many things we make, when we have an order for an Etive it is such a pleasure to cast it on. It takes shape quickly, is knitted in-the-round, so requires minimal sewing, and it’s such a sweet and enduring style for boy or girl! The pattern is available from size 0-6m – 2-3 years, and if you sign up for our knit-along emails, you’ll receive a discount code to purchase the pattern at half price!
When do we start? And how long does it last?
We’re casting on May 4th, and we’re wrapping up May 20th. As with all knitting projects, we encourage you to swatch your yarns so can ensure you’re getting the right gauge to achieve proper fit.
If you are an experienced knitter ~ you don’t have to wait for our tutorials, you can just fly through the pattern at your own pace, although we’d still love to hear your thoughts about the pattern and see your progress pictures! You can use the #rainerandbearKAL on social media and we will be sharing our favourites on our blog and Instagram stories.
We will be covering the following subjects with videos and or step by step instructions:

This is perfect if you are a beginner as we will be here to help at any point along the way!
We hope you will join us!
