As this was a collaborative creation with Jeanne of Destination Yarn, I strongly recommend treating yourself to one of her two Mystery Kit options linked here. The stitch patterns included in this nostalgic adventure were created with these colorway combinations in mind. These kits will also provide a more complete MKAL experience as you uncover your mystery notion companions to help you as you stitch your way through, and as you style your final piece with a shawl pin unique to this event.

Alternatively, you’ll need…
C1 - 150 yd fingering weight yarn in a dark semi-solid colorway
C2 - 150 yd fingering weight yarn in a medium variegated colorway
C3 - 150 yd fingering weight yarn in a medium semi-solid colorway
C4 - 150 yd fingering weight yarn in a speckled colorway
4 stitch markers
Suavest Sheep yarn bobbins to tidy loose ends
US #5 /3.75mm needles or size needed to obtain gauge
Cable Needle (in needed to work cables)

Where can I get the Mystery Kit?
On the designers’ website Crafty Flutterby Creations

Where can I get non mystery colors for the pattern?
On the Destination Yarn website. There are a few 4 skein 40g mini skein sets that would work well.
