Formerly the TTL Mystery Shawl 2017, Fugue in Mosaic Minor is a two-color asymmetrical triangle. I recommend a solid or near solid yarn for both colors. I do not recommend highly variegated yarns for this pattern. If you’re feeling adventuresome, try playing around with 3 colors. Have a look at the projects on Ravelry for some ideas of alternate color placements.

This shawl may be worked in any weight yarn, but keep in mind that the heavier the yarn, the more yarn you will need. The sample shawl used approximately 430 yards of color A and approximately 365 of yards of color B of fingering weight of Yarn Carnival Yak Attack. Be sure to allow extra. The amount of yarn needed will vary with slight differences in personal gauge, yarn weight, fiber, and brand (even within same yarn weight category).

Although this is a shawl, it is important to obtain gauge in order to avoid running out of yarn and to have your finished shawl match the size indicated. Adjust needle size as necessary to obtain gauge. The gauge given above is a blocked gauge. The lace pattern for your gauge swatch will be given in clue 1.

The pattern name came from a contest we had on Ravelry after the Mystery KAL was over. Here’s how winner, fhorn explained her suggestion: “I often think in musical terms. This shawl starts with a main theme, the lace. It then embellishes the lace with the various mosaic sections, always returning to the lace. And because this is a mystery, I’m choosing a minor key (which always sounds more mysterious!)”
