Join me for the first mystery knit-along—and pattern--in the Year of Kaleidoscope Knitting 2020!

This shawl pattern will incorporate many—but not all—of the aspects of kaleidoscope knitting. A good introduction to kaleidoscope knitting, it will be a doable (a.k.a. not-too-difficult) project for the average knitter and will result in a wearable shawl when done.

There are five weekly clues with the first clue going out on Tuesday, 14 January 2020.

The finished piece uses approximately 1100 m./1203 yds. of different yarns with an average weight of 325 m./355 yds. per 100 g.

Create a palette of at least 5-7 colours to begin. You can always add in more colours as you work. This project is excellent for using up scrap yarn. The more colours the better!
