This is the final season of Downton and thus our final MKAL as well (although we’ve heard rumor of a movie, so we are holding out hope!)

To make it easier to find help with the pattern, I have added direct links to the Clue Threads here and will be unsticking the earlier threads in order to make the current threads easier to find. Here are the direct links:

Clue 1: Knitting Help & Spoilers

I made a pilgrimage to Lorna’s Laces in Chicago where their awesome team allowed me to test dye this color myself. I was aiming to create a color that looked like the Yorkshire skyline, and I am so thrilled with how it turned out! I hope you like it too! This color was only available for the duration of the MKAL, but there are plenty of other beautiful colorways of Solemate to choose from!

-2 skeins of Lorna’s Laces Solemate in “Yorkshire Skies” -or- 850 yds of fingering weight yarn.
-US Size 4 – 24” & 40” circular needles (or size needed to obtain gauge.)
-US Size 4 - DPNs
-Stitch markers
-Tapestry needle

How to get pattern help:
Just like previous years, there will be threads for both Help Chat and Photos over in the Jimmy Beans Wool Ravelry Group, For the MKAL, there will be a separate thread for each clue, so be sure to ask your question for whichever clue you are on in the appropriate Help Chat thread. The photo thread will be a “spoiler” thread, for those who want a sneak peek at what the finished clue looks like. To kick us off, we already have an MKAL Pre-Chat Thread started, so please feel free to join in the excitement!
