Fall is for MALs – Jimmy Beans Wool Blog

It’s finally fall, y’all! That can only mean one thing – it’s MAL (make-along) season! Ranging from big, fluffy blankets to cozy shawls and comfortable mitts, there’s a MAL for everyone out there who wants to cast on and knit or crochet along with other people making the same project! The sense of community built on these MALs warms our hearts to no end. To kick off the spooky, cool season of autumn, we decided to compile a list of some of our favorite MALs we’ve seen around lately – think of this as your one-stop-shop for all things make-along, hehe!
