Join us in June 2024 for Ambah’s annual June Solstice Knit-along (KAL).

A “choose your own” Mystery Knit Along (MKAL). This or That begins with a choice between your preferred shape, shawl or wrap, followed by clues presented weekly over four weeks. Both the shawl and wrap will follow the same design/stitch patterns; only the shape will differ. Each of the clues will offer a choice between Path A or Path B. Follow Path A or Path B for a standalone design with each clue flowing into the next. Or mix it up as each choice is presented to you; start with Path A or B, then work Path B or A and so on. There are four clues with a total six parts, each with an “A or B” decision to make. With This or That, the choice is yours.

Visit the dedicated MKAL thread for more detailed MKAL info, FAQs and yarn tips.

Fingering weight
C1, C2, C3: 400 yd/366 m each

  • Total yardage for each colour can be either a single skein or mini skeins. Eg 5 x 20 g minis or 3 x 33 g minis per 400 yd/366 m requirement
  • C1 and C2 need to contrast strongly.
  • C1 will be the more dominant colour in your project than C2.
  • C3 can be the same colour as either C1 or C2.
  • This will work well with a gradient yarn; whole cake or mini skeins. Swap C1 or C2 and/or C3 with a gradient yarn.
