Fancy a Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy themed MKAL for August?

Join us in the Nimble Knits group for a semi-circular shawl adventure full of airy lace, dynamic transitions and fun!


The design has five distinct parts to reflect the story. To keep the element of surprise in the design, the pattern has been separated into these parts, however each requires more knitting than the last. The release dates have therefore been spaced to reflect the amount of knitting involved.

Part 1: Aug 1
Part 2: Aug 3
Part 3: Aug 7
Part 4: Aug 12
Part 5: Aug 19


Please keep a placeholder image first in your project for the duratiion of the KAL to avoid spoiling the surprise those who prefer to wait.

Skill level

Intermediate/confident, see my project notes here for more detail.


Suits lace to fingering. The design has several possible ending points, and the outer edging can be extended for many, many rows, so the shawl can use anywhere from 488m/533y to over 1000m/1100y. (Specifics available on my project page, linked above.)
