Welcome to the Tellybean Knits Tasting Menu MKAL, a mystery inspired by my love of food! This mystery is packed with flavor (and color). For this MKAL, we will be knitting a yummy wrap.

When you purchase the Tasting Menu MKAL, a “Getting Ready Guide” will be automatically delivered to Ravelry library. This guide will give you all the info you need to start preparing for the first clue, including tips on planning your yarn, making your color selections, gathering your needles and notions, and more. There is even a coloring page! Clues will be automatically delivered to your library beginning January 1, 2020 (no need to rush through your holiday knitting).


CLUE 1 : JANUARY 1, 2020
CLUE 2 : JANUARY 8, 2020
CLUE 3 : JANUARY 15, 2020
CLUE 4 : JANUARY 22, 2020

Are you ready to start planning your wrap? Hop over to the Tellybean Knits group page. You can chat, show off your yarn, ask questions, share foodie photos, and make plans on the Tasting Menu Getting Ready thread.

The Tasting Menu MKAL will be hosted in the Tellybean Knits group on Ravelry.

You will need NINE mini skeins & ONE full skein of yarn for this project.

For my wrap, I used
Lolodidit Loriginal & Lil Lolo Loriginal
(85% extra fine superwash Merino, 15% Nylon)

COLOR 1 : 52 yards [48 meters]
COLOR 2 : 82 yards [75 meters]
COLOR 3 : 122 yards [112 meters]
COLOR 4 : 98 yards [90 meters]
COLOR 5 : 106 yards [97 meters]
COLOR 6 : 108 yards [99 meters]
COLOR 7 : 88 yards [80 meters]
COLOR 8 : 90 yards [82 meters]
COLOR 9 : 80 yards [73 meters]
COLOR 10 : 380 yards [348 meters]

I have curated SIX kits using the most scrumptious Lolodidit yarn. Choose from the Umami, Salty, Sweet, Sour, Spicy, or Palette Cleanser kit! Each kit is based on a flavor (except the Palette Cleanser, of course). You can find all six kits from Lolodidit for sale here.

Every mystery involves some risk, but here are some things you can expect:

  • This pattern is ONE SIZE
  • This design is great for all levels
  • There will be no brioche, cables, or stranded colorwork
  • There will be some very simple lace (less than 10% off the project)
  • The lace portion will be charted and the charts will include written instructions

The finished measurements and the shape of this wrap are part of the surprise! This will be a large, but not huge wrap. When you finish the wrap, you will be able to wear it like a shawl, wrap, or large scarf.

Two Sets of US Size 6 [4 mm] circular needle, 32” [80 cm] long or size to obtain gauge

18 sts & 36 rows = 4 inches 10cm in GARTER stitch knit flat AFTER BLOCKING

Changes in gauge will affect yardage if different from above.

4 Stitch markers & a Tapestry needle

We will be using the hashtags #tastingmenumkal & #tastingmenuwrap on social media.

Please use the Tasting Menu thumbnail or photo of your unknit yarn as the first photo of your Ravelry project page throughout the MKAL. This will help keep the wrap a mystery. Thank you!
