Welcome to my eighth mystery shawl KAL! This is a shallow triangle using two colors of light sport/fingering weight yarn, 385 or 400 or 438 yards each.

The first clue will be released digitally on April 3. The KAL will have 5 clues total, each one week apart. After the KAL is over, your mystery pattern will update to the full pattern. After the mystery KAL is finished and the pattern is released as a full pdf, the cost of the completed pattern will increase to $6.50.

The yarn pictured with limited edition pin (from Stitches West kits) is A Verb for Keeping Warm Floating in Kabocha (darker solid) and Papaya (lighter speckled), and these are the original colors for the shawl. The second yarn picture shows two additional colorways available.

We will be knitting together in the @Romi’s Studio forum. I hope you’ll join us!!!

Hints before the first clue:

- Although Floating and Annapurna are listed as sport weight in the database, I would say they knit as though they are on the light side, and more like a fingering weight. Either light sport or fingering weight will work.

- The pattern starts with the lighter speckled color.

- Do not substitute a yarn of which you have less than 385 yards.
