“It was a dark and stormy knit…”

Join Trystitchual Designs for their first installment of The Slip Knitwise, P.I. Murder Mystery Lit-A-Longs.

Not just a pattern, but also a story set in the classic film noir era of 1945. The yarns are the characters and the stitches tell the story.

Join our intrepid gumshoe Slip Knitwise, P.I., and the Purlington siblings in a case full of lies, betrayal, and… murder.

This pattern was originally introduced as a free weekly Murder Mystery Lit-A-Long from April 13, 2018 through May 25, 2018.

As of June 1, 2018, it is no longer available in individual chapter form. It is only available as a consolidated pattern.

This is a consolidated and updated form of the original MMKAL containing the story, written pattern, and charts for:

  • The Prologue
  • Chapter One
  • Chapter Two
  • Chapter Three
  • Chapter Four
  • The Epilogue

There is a Ravelry forum for discussion in support of this MMKAL for both spoiler and non-spoiler posts, as well as other fun topics.
