KAL Fashion Show

A video call and IRL (if you’re in Nor Cal) event in which, funny thing, we all show up in our matching berets! We’ll share our #sleuthaesthetic looks, share some FO pics, and your KAL mods, Bernadette and Catie, will give out prizes!

Will there be a mystery to solve this night, resulting in a prize giveaway? Who knows? Who knows anything, really. Life is a mystery…


In case anyone was wondering, this KAL welcomes trans girl detectives. It also welcomes all other genders of detectives. We also want to welcome knitters of any marginalized group.

#sleuthaesthetic looks hot on us all.


You can grab the pattern below, anytime after Friday, March 17th!

Sleuth Beret


We get it. You’re a private investigator but no one takes you seriously. Let’s change that. Sleuth Beret is the credibility you want, today. Or however long it takes you to knit it. Probably about a week.

This is a downloadable knitting pattern pdf.

See sizing, gauge, tools, and suggested yarn in pattern sample images.

There is a KAL for this pattern happening soon! Visit KAL page.
