For those of you who joined us for the Big Game Mystery Make-Along back in February, you know the great time we had making a mystery project together. We learned a LOT from our first attempt at a mystery make-along and are using what we learned to make this one better!

The Tournament of Stitches mystery make-along is a great way for us to come together as a community and make something that is the same…but different… Sound confusing? I hope not. Think of the old, “choose your own adventure” stories you probably read as a kid, this will be similar to that.

Your first choice is whether you want to make a shawl or a cowl. Once you decide that, you will follow along the options for that piece. Each round there will be a set of clues for you to choose and each clue will have the concentration level attached (see chart below) so you can decided what kind of concentration level you want to use for that week. Once you select the clue, simply work up the pattern for that clue then wait for the next round to start.

On the next round, you will have another set of clues to choose from and you can select which one you want to follow for that week. The cool thing is that I’ve written the pattern in such a way that you can mix and match concentration levels so you don’t have to stick to the same one each round. After four rounds you will have a finished shawl or cowl that was a mystery to you (and to me) prior to you making it.
