I’m so excited to share my third Mystery-KAL pattern with you!

“Festival of Stitches” is a fun & playful project that will keep you engaged from start to finish! Different sections make it addictive and knit up quickly. The finished item will add a wonderful highlight to your daily wardrobe with a shape that is versatile and easy to wear.

Will there be colourwork? Yes! But only easy slipped stitches (yay, mosaic) and colour blocking, no stranded/fair isle/intarsia/brioche.
There will also be some cables, eyelets, stripes… but no super complicated techniques are used in this pattern.

Each clue contains fully written instructions and charts so you can choose which you prefer to work from.
Every section in this pattern is completely adjustable to your liking or the yarn/yardage you have available.

This pattern has been designed in collaboration with the wonderful Miss Babs and they have put together some beautiful “Trios” for you in the original Caroline yarn and their lovely Yummy 2-ply for this KAL.

I hope you enjoy the pattern and the KAL!

Designed for fingering weight yarn in 3 contrasting colours. Allow approx. 337-340 m / 368-374 yds of each colour to get the sample size. Each section is fully adjustable and works just as well for more/fewer yardage.
Yarn used for sample: Miss Babs Caroline (fingering weight, 100 g = 366 m / 400 yds) in colourways Dark Pegasus (A), Oyster (B) and Dark Adobe (C).

Is not critical for this project, but differences will affect yardage requirements and the finished size. Be sure to use a larger needle size than may be recommended for your yarn to allow a good drape of the finished item.
Gauge on sample: 20 sts x 40 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4“ in garter stitch after light blocking.
Needles used for sample: 3.5 mm / US 4

This pattern has been professionally tech edited and well testknitted. Many thanks to my wonderful helpers!

The pattern will be delivered in small “clues” to your Ravelry library/email weekly, until the final pattern reveals end of May.
