Welcome to “Choose Greg’s Adventure: 2022” -- a mystery design-along!

Throughout the summer of 2022, I will be designing this shawl “in public.” What does that mean? It means that I will sharing details about my design process as I go. Additionally, when I get to points where it’s time to make design choices, I will put some of those choices up for an internet vote. So you can have input on how the final shawl comes out.

I do have some basic parameters I will be working with: this is an asymmetrical triangle shawl knit with 2 hanks (100g each) of light fingering yarn. I am using Beach Bunny Yarns World Traveler -- one hank is variegated and the other is tonal. The variegated yarn will largely be seed stitch for texture, and the tonal yarn will be lace. Choosing the lace patterns is where the internet voting will come in! I think there will be 2-3 lace panels inside the shawl and a fine one at the end.

I’ll be writing more detail about the process as we go on my Knitting Daddy blog, and will be talking about it on Unraveling…a knitting podcast.

Please use the hashtag #ChooseGregsAdventure when posting pictures on social media.

NOTE: Due to the nature of the design process, the individual clues will not be tech edited or test knit by anyone other than me. Once the shawl is complete, I will convert all the clues to a single, cohesive pattern and have it tech edited. Because the design won’t be polished until the end, it is currently priced at $3. Once the completed design is published, the price will increase to $6. Of course, patrons of Unraveling…a knitting podcast always receive a 50% discount for all of my patterns.
