If you love to “try out” new stitch patterns, then Audition is a KAL you won’t want to miss! This generously sized asymmetrical shawl debuts four unique stitch patterns. Each pattern features interesting stitches along with improved ways to execute old standards.

The shawl is knit using the lovely shades of Simplicity Spray by HiKoo and is paired with two skeins of solid HiKoo® Simplicity. (Both of these solid skeins MUST be the same color). Simplicity Spray is wound in huge 200 gram cakes and dyed with a brand new technique for an exceptional color palette.

While the shawl design is a mystery, it is no secret that video tutorials and daily support are available all throughout the knit along.

This will be Michelle’s last KAL for now as she takes a well-deserved sabbatical to spend time with her ever-expanding family. Have no worries! While she is globetrotting and rocking babies, her website and videos will remain in place to assist you. Michelle will continue to monitor the Knit Purl Hunter group on Ravelry with all her many friends.
