Starting Axiom and KAL Resources

Today is the day to cast on your Axiom Sweaters! Because the pattern is knit in pieces and seamed, the order you knit the four pieces is up to you. If you’re new to knitting cables, we suggest starting with your back or sleeves to get you feeling confident about your project, and we’ll have some tips for working the cables later this month on this blog. To stay on track, we recommend aiming to take about 15 days per piece, leaving you plenty of time for assembly and finishing by the end of the KAL on December 15th.

Be sure to check out our Learning Center for resources, and use the hashtag #AxiomKAL on Instagram to share your progress with us!

Resources for the Axiom Sweater KAL

    Hi Kim, I hope you received an answer to your question. I went looking for the same information and it was difficult to suss out. Here’s what I found:
    Suggested yarn is High Desert Tweed (worsted)
    Wool of the Andes Superwash (worsted) is on sale:
    I looked and there is no information that I can see for how much yarn per size. Best if you send an email to them directly for that information. Cheers!

      If you visit the Axiom Sweater pattern page that’s linked in the post, there are two different ways to find that information depending on your device. If you’re on mobile, you’ll find the yarn details broken down by size on the second to last photo, which is the front page of the pattern, and the yarn type and weight are also included lower down on the page. If you’re using a desktop computer, you can toggle the Kit Builder by size and yarn to find out the exact number of skeins you’d need for a specific size, and the yarn type and weight will be in the right sidebar.
