Not much is known about the very first Quarter Quell in The Hunger Games. All that is known about this Games is that it was a Quarter Quell and the twist was that the districts had to choose their own tributes instead of reaping them.

So goes the same for this shawl. I will be holding a KAL for this beautiful shawl in August 2016 and you can volunteer to be in the games. When the games begin you will receive the full pattern and can battle it out with the other player to be the first person to victory (finishing the shawl).

Needles- US size 6 (4mm) DPNs and 32” cable
