Brae Cove Tunic KAL :: getting started without a hitch

It’s another cosy snow day here in Salem, so it’s the perfect day to kick off the Brae Cove Tunic knit-a-long!

Sam Lamb, the amazing designer behind the tunic pattern, has made a detailed video walking us through the Invisible Provisional Cast-On. Maybe I’m a littttle too excited about this video, but that’s only because the first time I knit this pattern I overlooked this special cast on, and, well… had to rip everything back! Hope you all find this video as helpful as I will when I cast on this weekend.

In the meantime, we would love to see what yarn you’re using — so even if you haven’t cast on yet, you can certainly take photos with the hashtag #braecovetunic of your yarn choice. I’m using Loft in my favorite color-way, Woodsmoke, and am going to attempt the color-work in Wool Socks.

Oh, and I forgot to mention in my previous post — by no means do you need to cast on today, just as long as your finished knits are up on the Ravelry page by May 18th, you’ll be entered to win the Grand Prize. The first giveaway happens in two weeks time — High Pines Kit from Brooklyn Tweed! Happy knitting! xo

  1. What a great idea! I wish I had come upon this earlier; I totally would have joined. (Knowing me, I probably missed an email.)

    I am DEFINITELY going to be knitting this, but will get a later start date, so definitely won’t be done by May 18th, but I’m so excited to follow along on Ravelry and see everyone’s tunics as they finish, and I’ll post mine on there once it’s done. (Still haven’t bought the yarn yet — DOH!)

    This will be my first shirt/sweater type project, so I’m both excited and alittle nervous. Wish me luck!

    Keep the fun coming, and I can’t wait to meet you in September, Meg 🙂

    • Hey Candace, of course you can join in whenever! We would love to see your finished project, and please do post it on the Ravelry group… also, there is the ‘grand prize’, but also lots of fun mini-prizes happening along the way, so please do post photos of your ‘work-in-progress’. Excited to see what yarn you’ve chosen — you GOT this!! xox
