Hi-diddly-ho, Knitterinos! Ring in the new year with me and join the Sprankers mystery knit-along.

DECEMBER 31: Sign ups start. Early bird price is $3.
JANUARY 11: Pattern released. Price goes up to $5.
FEBRUARY 14: Prize giveaway.

This is a ONE-CLUE shawl, all brioche stitch (one color, flat) and you can use almost any yarn in any gauge. Use 200, 300, or 400 grams of fingering weight, sport/dk weight, or worsted weight. Solids, semi-solids, variegated/multi-color, fades, and gradients would all work.

When you sign up, you’ll receive a place-holder pattern that contains instructions for making a swatch that doubles as the beginning of your shawl. You can use this time to choose your yarn, check your gauge, and brush up on your brioche if you need some practice. I would say that an adventurous beginner could easily make this project. Nothing too fancy - just standard brioche knitting with occasional increases to create the shape.

The full pattern has now been released!.

Follow me on Instagram @GrittyKnits and post pictures of your progress using the hashtag #SprankersMKAL. I’ll be reposting and sharing your photos to my stories throughout the knit-along. Everyone who has posted a completed shawl by February 14 will be entered into a random drawing to win Gritty Knits patterns & yarn!

Yarn shown in the pictures is Gritty Knits - Merinosaurus Worsted in the colors Caudipteryx (pink-ish), Deinonychus (blue-green-ish), Postosuchus (purple-ish with a hint of green), and Psittacosaurus (purple-ish).
