Nachtfalter Summer Knit-a-Long

I’m very new to craft blogging.  (As in I started yesterday.)  Another blogger, reWOLLuzza liked my Saturday Night Purse post yesterday, so I decided to check out her (much more established) blog.  On her blog I found many beautiful patterns and was delighted to find that she is working with a couple of other popular blogs (Holla Knits and  Under the Red Umbrella)to complete a summer knit-a-long of her Nachtfalter pattern shown below.  I’ve never knit with other people before.  I am beyond excited.  The idea is that a group of knitters will work on the same project over a six week period.  “Cast On Day” is tomorrow, so I found the project just in time!  I quickly knitted partial swatches to check my gauge.  I’ll post my weekly progress here.


Bottom ribbing gauge 1.5″


Butterfly Lace 1″

  1. I’m so glad you stumbled upon us just in time to join in the fun!
    Is that black or a really, really dark blue you’re working with? I think it’s blue and I’d love that…

    • It is blue. It is kind of between a navy and royal blue. The color is very pretty, but it didn’t show up well in the picture. I’ll try to get better pictures in the future! I really love the pattern. The sweater is gorgeous.

  10. Hi Rachel,
    I was wondering how to get the pattern for that beautiful sweater you did with the knit-a-long. My daughter Rachel Guia sent me a pic your work. Please let me know.
