2014 Sampler Mystery Knit-a-Long
Underground Crafter’s 2014 Sampler MKAL is a great way to expand your skills or increase your stitch collection during the course of a year while working alongside other knitters and an experienced knitting teacher (and designer). If you can cast on, knit, purl, and bind off, this sampler MKAL is for you!
Each stitch will be a mystery, with a picture only shared after the next clue is revealed, so even intermediate knitters can have fun. You can find the links to the chat and spoiler threads for the MKAL here.
We will start off with basic knit and purl combinations (to help build your confidence in pattern reading) and move on to stitches that incorporate increasing and decreasing, cables, bobbles, and other techniques. New techniques will be explained with written or photo tutorials and/or links to web resources.
All clues have been released, including 25 different patterns for 6” (15 cm) squares, tips for planning and assembling a blanket, and several border options. Knitting one of each square will make a delightful baby blanket.
Here’s a guide to the three documents you’ll find:
