Mystère is a bottom-up shawl that I designed for my first ever mystery KAL and with the help and encouragements from some wonderful knitters, the KAL was run successfully.

There are some interesting twisted stitches involved in the pattern and it is definitely a challenging and yet satisfying lace knitting project. Photo tutorials and video clips are included in the pattern to help making those twisted stitches.

The shawl size can be adjusted easily depending on the even number of leaf pattern you cast on at the beginning.

Nupps, wrapped eyelet, twisted stitches are all the fun you will have in this shawl. You can replace the nupps with beads if you wish too and there are bead placements suggestion for certain rows of YO in the pattern too! Enjoy! .
