Are you thinking about the cooler weather? Well you should be and I am here to help with your wardrobe! Everyone, and I mean everyone, needs a big statement, every day, go to Shawl for fall. This is a Mystery Knit a Long (MKAL) and will be broken down into 5 Clues. Clue 1 will span 2 weeks and the rest will be weekly. At the end I will compile each clue and make one file for the entire pattern. I picked my variegated color first, and then picked out two colors from it, for my coordinating semi solids. I would have at least 90gr or 360yds of each color on hand. You may go with 4 colors and split up one of your semi solids into about 30gr and 60gr. Clue 1 will begin with your variegated color. I am SERIOUSLY so super excited for everyone to work this Shawl up! I have to say this is my favorite piece that I have designed to date.

UPDATED Schedule:
Sunday July 24th 9am EST Clue 1
Sunday August 7th 9am EST Clue 2
Sunday August 21st 9am EST Clue 3
Sunday August 28th 9am EST Clue 4
Sunday August 28th 9am EST Clue 5

I am in the process of compiling Clues to make one pattern which should be available by 9/11.

You will be starting Clue 1 with your variegated color. Here is how I would arrange your colors, however you may do whatever you would like,
Color A- Variegated
Color B- Darker Solid/Semi-Solid (unless you are using a neutral/white then use your Lighter)
Color C- Darker Solid/Semi-Solid
