Arne and Carlos’ quarantine knitting challenge

The first week of the knitting challenge started on Monday March 23.

Day after day, they release clues to the models of the week. Each day of the week, a part / pattern will be revealed. Week 1 has parts 1 through 5, week 2 has parts 6 through 10, and so on.

So far, the weeks have not started on Monday exclusively. For example, week 2 was posted on Friday March 27 and week 3 was posted on Tuesday March 31. But they publish five games per week, which means you can do one per day.

Start week 1 here. You can find week 2 and week 3.

Arne and Carlos have also posted a KAL (knitting) podcast and YouTube video that you can watch every day!
