NOTE: if you bought this pattern before June 2011 at a fiber festival you may have a copy with an error in it.
Please check the errata below.

All patterns purchased since June 2011 or bought for the KAL are correct. There were only a few incorrect copies sold and I am so sorry for any problems this may have caused.

This pattern was originally designed for a Mystery KAL on the Criminal Minds group that will began November 10th. 2010 it was fondly nick named “The House Cozy” so I’ve added that to the pattern name for anyone looking for it!)

You’ll need 880 yds of fingering weight yarn and size 7 needles.
The finished shape will be a half circle.

If you have 297 stitches at the end of Row 15 in Clue #4 then your pattern is correct as written…


If you have 301 stitches, and yes, because this is a ‘mystery row’ this is completely possible, …knit rows 16 &17 as follows:

Row 16: K3, P across shawl to last 3, K3 (301)

Row 17: K3, K2, {yo, K2tog-b, K1, K2tog, yo, K1} x11 to 5 before m,
yo, K2tog-b,K1, K2tog, sm, K1, sm repeat to last 8,
yo, K2tog-b, K1, K2tog, K3 (297)

Please note:
in the 297 stitch version you are knitting to 4 before m, then you will yo, k2tog-b, k2

in the 301 version you will knit to 5 before m then yo, K2tog-b, K1, K2tog

When you are done with either version you will have 297 stitches for Row 18
