Buy today and get all 8 Clues, plus a Pre-KAL Guide.

Eight secret (doable-sized) clues, one per week, lead us through crafting a stunning celestial shawl that concludes with a finish honoring the lunar eclipse of June 5th.


All yarns are welcomed and loved, from stash to new hand-dyed kits to widely available yarns at all price points. Shown here are two kinds of selections - stunning sets from Six & Seven Fiber and a selection of sparkly gem tones in Jojoland Ballad.

You’ll need four skeins of fingering weight yarn, three that progress from light to dark, and a fourth that is a contrast color. For more about yarn requirements, theme, and ideas please see the Pre-KAL Guide that you receive when you buy the pattern.

Busy, friendly chat is underway!

A big part of the fun of a mystery KAL is sharing ideas, experiences, yarn and stories, as well as helping and encouraging one another. Here’s a thread to get started. <3
