We're going to knit a Mystery Shawl!!
The clues for this KAL will be sent to you by mid-day (probably earlier) on the 1st, 8th, 15th, 22nd, & 29th of June.
Please join the Ravelry group and participate in the discussion there. Questions are most easily addressed in the group forum. Always ask your questions in the group forum first, PM’s and emails will take longer to answer.
There will be separate threads for each week of the KAL. Only post spoiler photos in the appropriate spoiler thread.
When adding your project to Ravelry be courteous to other participants in the KAL and make your first photo a “Spoiler Alert”. You are welcome to use the image above for your top photo.
Choosing a Size & Gauge:
Gauge: 18 sts & 22 rows = 4”/10cm in stockinette, blocked!
Please take the time to check your gauge and adjust the needle size as necessary. Gauge varies widely from knitter to knitter.
This pattern is offered in one size which, when worked at the gauge given in this pattern will measure 52" wide by 17" deep. To make the shawl larger or smaller adjust the needle size and/or yarn to achieve a larger or smaller gauge. Be sure to allow extra yarn if you decide to increase the size of the shawl.
A solid or semi solid color is best. This shawl has patterning that will be lost with most variegated or striped yarns.
I used a lace weight yarn form my sample, but a fingering weight yarn will also work. Be sure to allow extra yarn for differences in yarn put up and gauge.
A Bit About the Design:
This shawl will be worked from the top edge down and out. It starts with a garter tab, which is described in the pattern. There are also many excellent on-line tutorials and You Tube videos for this technique.
Working flat, increases, decreases, picking up sts, binding off, blocking.
Both charts and written instructions will be included.
We will start the KAL on June 1st. You will be sent a new clue once a week through out the month of June. To join simply purchase the pattern. The pattern will be $4.00 from now until June 1st. On June 2nd the pattern price will increase to $6.00.
