Presenting my first ever mystery pattern release. If you’ve never participated in a Mystery KAL hey, neither have I! So we can work together to make this our own.

Here’s how it will work:

Friday, March 2: The Mystery pattern will become available for purchase. Limited, mystery shrouded information will release about this new sweater design, including schematic measurements and yarn requirements.

Four sets of instructions are released on Friday for four weeks: March 2, 9, 16, 23. On March 30 you’ll be invited to post your completed sweaters and be entered to win free yarn from Julie Asselin!!

There will be no photographs included in the pattern! This is what makes it a mystery, you will be knitting yourself an original Hannah Fettig sweater without knowing the finished look until you bind it off your needles. Some of you have said in the past “I would buy any of your patterns sight unseen”…well now you get to! :)

If this whole mystery thing isn’t your…thing, no worries. At the end of the four weeks the full pattern will be released. Also, if you choose to participate in the Mystery KAL, after it is over the mystery pattern will be replaced in your Ravelry library with the full pattern.

This is not a surprise, gag sweater with twists and turns. If you like my sweater designs, you will also like this one. Check back here for more details in the coming days! Forums makes me anxious so I won’t be using one for this mystery sweater, but you will be able to interact with me on Instagram (@knitbot) or you can send me e-mails at I will update this page and the homepage of my website with frequently asked questions, answered as we go!

Is this a good pattern for a first time sweater knitter?
As with most of my sweater designs, I do think this one is accessible for beginner knitters. Hey, if you’re adventurous, go for it! However, you may also decide for a first time sweater a more straight forward experience would be best. You know yourself and your abilities! The good news is at the end you’ll have a full pattern to work from if the piece mail pattern starts to throw you off.

What is the fit?
This is a set in sleeve cardigan. If you want a reference point, check out my Georgetown Cardigan. This is also a set in sleeve cardigan. Many of my designs are raglan construction. Given the success of Georgetown I decided to add another set in sleeve to my catalog! I would say you can expect a similar fit to Georgetown, with a bit more ease. And that’s all I’ll say about that. :)

Is the gauge measured blocked or unblocked?
Oh gauge. I never know how to answer this question. I did calculate the entire sweater based on an unblocked swatch. However, measuring gauge on the finished, blocked sweater I am getting the same thing, 20 x 28 over 4”. So I guess officially I would say measure your gauge blocked to be sure to match the finished sample!
