The Ice Fire KAL Starts Today

Today is the day to cast on your Ice Fire Wrap! With the KAL running June 1st to July 31st, there are 8 weeks to knit your wrap, and it’s no coincidence that the large repeat is worked 8 times! To get your wrap finished by July 31st, all you need to do is work a full repeat of rows 5-76 once every week until you bind off. 

If you ever get stuck, be sure to check out the resources in our Learning Center for help, or leave a comment here or on social media! Use the hashtag #IceFireKAL to share your own progress.

    I am also struggling tremendously with the flame. I knit continental style and have torn my attempts up multiple times. I can knit, wrap and turn…. It would be great to see a short video for short row 6 and 7.

      Are you having difficulty keeping track of where you are, or is there another issue that’s making them difficult?

    I’m having a really hard time with the flame section! Ready to throw in the towel. 😢 Any tips? I’ve watched the videos but it’s still throwing me. A video of one being done would be really helpful,

      Could you share more about what you’re having trouble with? The more details, the more we can help!

        Picking up the wrapped stitch, especially where there’s more than one. I’m getting lost on which stitch is which. I think I was okay in the first row ( first time picking up a wrapped stitch-short row 6). it was subsequent rows that seemed to throw me off.

        • Andi Satterlund / June 9, 2023

          On the podcast we talked a bit about simplifying the pattern by leaving the wraps in place and knitting the wrapped stitch normally instead of picking it up. It’s a great option if you’re having trouble keeping track of what you’ve already done because the wraps will be visible for reference when you look closely, but they’ll blend into the garter stitch from a distance.

          On my own project, I’m using that modification because I actually prefer the way it looks.

          Can you link the podcast you are referring to?

            Episode 365, where we announce the KAL has the details! If you scroll down on that post, you’ll find some time stamps to help you skip to the KAL discussion.

            You can also try putting a locking stitch marker on each wrapped stitch when you wrap it, to help keep track of which is which stitch. Then remove the marker once you knit back over the stitch.

    I bought the kit (pattern and yarn) and received my yarn today but where is the pattern?

    Late to the party- I want to use the 4 dragon lily colors I have, what would be a good Chroma contrast color for the other 4? I want it to pop like the sample. Thanks!

    • Andi Satterlund / June 5, 2023

      Dragon Lily is a gorgeous colorway to start with! To get a variation on the Ice Fire look, you could pair subdued blues and grays with your reds by using Sandpiper. That will provide plenty of contrast and coordinate well with the tones of Dragon Lily. That’d be my first choice, but if you’d like something brighter, Narwhal would also look nice.
