Powerful ancient dragons have awakened. Are you prepared to face them?

A choose your own adventure story - knitting style! This MKAL will allow you to create a larger double-knit scarf/shawl sized project compiled from four clues with four elemental-themed dragons to choose from. There are a total of 256 possible dragon combinations. Stick with your element or mix and match as you please! The story ending you receive will change depending on what path you choose, but there are no bad endings so pick and choose however you wish! Visit the official MKAL thread in the Epic Knits Group to declare your element and check out the prizes for finished scarves!

Base pattern will use approximately 600-650 yards each of two contrasting colors of sport weight yarn (total yardage will be between 1200 and 1300 yards). Feel free to play around with different yarn weights and needle sizes to find a combination that works well for you! There are two additional charts for each style of dragon that can be added to extend the length of the scarf.

The four clues will reveal new charts for the pattern along with the next section of the story. There will be four unique storylines, one for each element. As you choose your adventure, your story will be determined by which element you choose for which clue. Clues will be released once every 2 weeks on the following schedule -

June 1st - Clue 0 - Prologue and MKAL info live
June 15th - Prologue to story and swatches released
August 1st - Clue 1
August 15th - Clue 2
