Hummingbird is the Anna Johanna mystery shawl knit-a-long for fall 2019 so you’d best get ready to have fun and be prepared for anything.

The MKAL starts on August 16th and the clues will be updated as follows:

1st clue: August 16th
2nd clue: August 17th
3rd clue: August 18th
4th clue: August 20th
5th clue: August 21st
6th clue: August 22nd

8th clue: August 31st
9th clue: September 2nd
10th clue: September 5th
11th clue: September 9th
12th clue: September 13th

You’ll need three skeins of fingering weight yarn. I’d recommend vivid colors with good contrast. Check out my webstore(Fin), webstore(Eng) for yarn kits for the shawl. If you buy a yarn kit, you’ll get the pattern for free. There will be three different color schemes for the kits. Each kit will include three skeins of Martin’s Lab Merino Singles with one special colorway dyed especially for this MKAL.

The shawl is big, using most of the yarn and the pattern includes guides on yardage after each clue to make sure you don’t run out.
