Starting January 1st, we will begin our 1st Stunning Mystery Society Knit Along for 2019. As we knit our projects, we will discover Switzerland.

This will be a two-color shawl/throw/ruana created in a lovely, fingering weight.

This is a two-color wrap, knit in gorgeous fingering weight yarn. You can choose from four sizes: Small – Extra-Large and two shapes: Rectangular or Ruana.

Stunning String Studio has Alpine Chalet Kits in your choice of over 160 colors, complete with beads, stitch markers, the pattern and some extras. You can choose yours here.

The clues will be spread out over 8 weeks with simple, non-stressful sections released each week.

If you’ve never done a Mystery Knit Along before, you are in for a treat. Discovering the mystery along with your fellow knitters is the best.

The MKAL discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.

Pattern is fully written and charted. This pattern is knitCompanion® supported. What does that mean?

Skills Needed
Each clue will be fully written out and charted. The stitches used are basic, so it is a relaxing knit, but with enough detail to keep you interested. Basic knit increases and decreases (yo, k2tog, ssk) are included, but anything beyond that will be explained.
