Starting July 1st, we will begin our third Stunning Mystery Society knit-along for 2019 based virtually in the Netherlands.

This project is knit with two strands held together. You can either select two colors for a color shift from one color gradually to the second color, or you can select one color for a solid effect. Knit in our Lavish Lace base or upgrade to our Wispy lace base.

Select your size; small, mid or long lengths, with a choice of 4 neck opening sizes (dimensions shown on schematic image).

Stunning String Studio has Middelburg Kits in your choice of over 200 colors, complete with beads, stitch markers, the pattern and some extras. You can choose yours here.

The clues will be spread out over 8 weeks with simple, non-stressful sections released each week.

If you’ve never done a Mystery Knit Along before, you are in for a treat. Discovering the mystery along with your fellow knitters is the best.

The MKAL discussions will be in the Wild Prairie Knits group, so come and join us.

Skills Needed
Each clue will be fully written out and charted. The stitches used are basic, so it is a relaxing knit, but with enough detail to keep you interested. Basic knit increases and decreases (yo, k2tog, ssk) are included, but anything beyond that will be explained. We will be offering a good introduction to working in the round and optional beads.

Pattern is fully written and charted.
