This pattern was formerly Through the Loops Mystery Shawl 2015.

This year’s Mystery Shawl KAL is now over. Thank you to all who participated.

Thanks to Candigirl429 for her excellent name suggestion of Liz Christy. Here’s what she had to say about the name:

Liz Christy after the founder of the community garden in Manhattan. Liz Christy would toss seed grenades--balloons filled with wildflower seeds and fertilizer-- into New York City’s garbage-strewn vacant lots to see what would grow. She was a founder of the Green Guerillas.

The Liz Christy Shawl is a top down, two-color half-pi shawl. I recommend a solid or near solid yarn for the MC. CC can be slightly variegated, or tonal, but I do not recommend highly variegated yarns for this pattern.

There are large sections of each color, so if your colors look good together in the skein, they will also look good in this pattern.

If you prefer single color shawls, this pattern will also look lovely in one color.

I have included the yarn amounts that I used, be aware that yarn consumption amounts vary and you should always allow extra yarn.

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.
