  1. Little disappointed that the first row for knitting the cowl is not shown in the video. You assume that we won’t have a problem with just starting with the third row. I don’t feel like I should have to watch so much of the video to get instruction where I am having problems.

  2. Wondering if there will be a video tutorial with each KAL Week?!?
    I’m a newbie to the needles and I’m finding the mitten pattern a little hard to read/follow.
    Thanks for all your help :)

  3. Where is the gallery located at?

    I would like to have a link to the gallery please :)

  5. I live in New Zealand and went to a lot of trouble to take a nice photo of the hat and now find that I cannot compete.

  6. Where do I find the written pattern for the crochet items?

  7. I life in the Netherlands, I’m sorry that I cann’t join this challenge

    • Hi Hermina,

      We wish we could open our contest to anyone and everyone who wanted to participate. Unfortunately, we cannot adapt our rules and regulations to the requirement of every country and region. We hope you understand and enjoy the stitch-along tutorials anyway. :)

  8. Lace net curtains. I’m trying to find a pattern. But never found any. I’m just crocheting the v stitch. But it seams to be a bit boring for net curtains

  9. Same as I live in beautiful Australia

    :-(

    • Hi Robin, we’re sorry you feel that way! We’ll have other upcoming stitch-alongs, tutorials and contests – we hope you stick around and enjoy something in the future! :)

  11. I am a little sad as I would love to join and knit these items but cannot enter the competition as it is only for the US and Canada.
    Such a pity now I will knit them just for the sake of knitting them. :)
