Square-ish is the simplest knit ever and it looks great on everyone!

All of these different women are modeling the very same piece.

Simply two rectangles with easy seams, Square-ish is the perfect first garment and travel project.

Let’s knit this breezy linen top together!

Join us Saturday, June 4th from 3-5 pm for a Wine Tasting and Square-ish Kick Off Party!  You’ll get 10% off your project supplies and Hilary will be available to answer any questions you have about the pattern.




The pattern is free for the Knitalong and exclusive to Nina until July.  It’s not even available on Ravelry yet!

If you’re not local, or wish to join this Knitalong without coming to the shop, we’ll be happy to ship the yarn and pattern (and we’ll offer the discount too).  Just email us at info@ninachicago.com.

Here are our favorite colors of Shibui Linen.  It takes just 3-4 skeins!



Maybe you prefer Shibui Twig.  That yarn will work too!

The Square-ish Knitalong will continue each weekend in June and most of July, Saturdays and Sundays from 3-5 pm.  Come whichever days work best for you – every weekend or just a few.

Eager to cast on right away?  Since it’s an easy garter stitch project, perfect for every level of knitter and everyday wear, feel free to come in anytime to get started.  The discount applies immediately.


Here’s Nina’s started project.
