Questions and Answers:

Q: Are there kits? A: Yes! Click through the following links to find kits at Elemental Affects and Sincere Sheep.

Q: Which color should be used to swatch? A: Less of Color 3 (natural) is used, so there’s more leeway there.

Q: Do I have to cut my yarn after swatching? I might need to use it. A: You don’t need to cut it! You can knit a little extra on your swatch so that you can wash the swatch and pin it to dry while still on the needle! It’s easier to do this if you use a circular needle, as you can put the stitches on the cable and stretch the swatch more. After you’ve gotten your measurements, just unravel the swatch and then steam out the kinks to get the yarn ready to use again!

Welcome to my autumn shawl-along! This shawl was designed using four colors of Coastal yarn, a lovely silk/merino/linen blend created by Elemental Affects and Sincere Sheep (who’ve also got some gorgeous kits for you)! Each skein is 200 yards, and it knits up as a sport weight yarn with a lovely drape and crispness. I’ve loved using it for mosaic!

The pattern will be released digitally in five installments, beginning on October 20, and there will be a YouTube live introduction with tips and tricks! This is not a mystery; you’ll see the whole shawl before we start, and if you follow me on Instagram you’ll have already seen a sneak peek! The pattern will be broken into five pieces total, with a 4pm (Pacific time) YouTube live intro to each, and each one week apart. You will receive access codes to view the lives, and if you are unable to be there “in person,” you will be able to access the recordings on my YouTube channel. The pattern with associated tips and tricks uses a “pay what you can” model to make it more accessible to more people, while helping me to defray some of the costs for my own time. It is also included in my 9 Lives eBook.

We will be knitting together in the @Romi’s Studio forum!

Feel free to substitute yarn, but please do not choose a yarn with less than 205 yards. Note when choosing colors: one of the colors needs to contrast well with each of the other three so that the mosaic pattern will show up properly.
