Join in a lunar mystery knitalong with clues that follow the phases of the moon! When you purchase the pattern, you’ll receive a Pre-KAL Guide with more about the theme and yarn selection.

Eight secret clues, one per week, will lead us through crafting a stunning celestial shawl. We’ll begin in April so that we conclude our shawls on the night of a lunar eclipse on 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 kits from Six & Seven Fiber and a selection of sparkly gem tones in Jojoland Ballad.

Rachel has created some luscious colorways and combinations specially gathered for this shawl. To see more photos and to pre-order in time for the KAL, visit her shop!

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.

Chat begins right away!

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
