The Perfect Blend MKAL is now over. When you buy the pattern, it is still in “Clue” form but this will revert to a single pattern after Clue 7 (the surprise clue that is for leftover yarn and unrelated to the shawl) is released in September. When? Well, that is part of the mystery! So, if you wish to knit it, you will have to download it one clue at a time.

12 mini-skeins - or use 4 skeins of 300 yards of sock yarn
There is also a tea recipe/suggestion for each clue**

Skill Level - advanced beginner. Can yo, k2tog, ssk, slip some, knit some, purl some, make some, that kind of stuff. If you’ve done some of my patterns, you’ll be fine and there is Paced and Planned Netflix Knitting throughout - i.e. garter rows.

All of the details are here including all of the participating dyers. There is currently a pre-clue with a schematic to help with your color placement and I’ve added one for those who want to use four full skeins of sock yarn.

The kits from Miss Babs are available here. The top one is the one I used for the design - I started with the hot pink (Color 1) and ended with the Gold (Color 12). It is called “Casapinka’s Perfect Blend.”

Materials 12 mini-skeins, at least 100 yards each for the normal sized shawl - not huge but lovely (80 yards for the smaller version).
