Make something that is both fun to knit and to wear - knitting with others is even more fun - so why not join the MKAL over in the Stitchnerds group - click here

Suitable for even a determined beginner - if you can knit and purl and follow a few instructions, you can make this, but more advanced knitters should have fun too.

Can be a scarf or a cowl.

The size is determined by the amount of yarn you have available - see below.

Originally designed for striping yarn but I have since made them with other yarns too and liked them all (see below for suggestions).

Pattern has been tested to ensure it is suitable for mystery knitting.

Clue #1 - Friday April 19th.
Clue #1b - Sunday April 21st
Clue #2 - Friday April 26th
Clue #3 - Sunday April 28th

The length of your item will be determined by your total yardage:

300m = roughly 130cm (good for a cowl) - 52”
400m = roughly 150-160cm (cowl or short scarf) - 60”
500m = roughly 180cm (scarf) - 72”

Weight can be anything from fingering to worsted/light Aran

Yarn options:

Single yarn:

I’d recommend a striping yarn - I used Noro (various ones) and Urth - you could also use a handpun (or similar) or gradient - not variegated

2-yarn version:

1/2 the yardage should be striping, handspun or variegated - this is a really good way to use approx. 200-250m of handspun

1/2 the yardage should be co-ordinating or contrasting solid or semi-solid.

4-yarn version:

you can use 4 yarns from a set of mini-skeins - 1/4 yardage of each.
or just equal amounts of 4 yarns you like together
