Join our Mystery Knitalong - FOMO is real!
"I have done the Mystery KAL for the last 5-6 years. I always look forward to the next one. Most of them were patterns that I would never have attempted. I have learned so many new techniques, most importantly how to read my knitting, which has given me much more confidence.” - a mystery lover
Our annual Mystery Knitalong (MKAL) is possibly our most popular event of the year. Last summer, almost 200 people across the country participated in our adventure.
The hardest part of the Mystery KAL has always been choosing yarn since you don’t know what you are making. To make it easier, we are offering kits.
2023 Mystery KAL Kit Includes:
- Five skeins of Dream in Color Lamb & Goat in a custom kit
- Four emails, sent weekly in June, including clues and tutorials for the mystery project
- Mystery pattern
- A custom goodie
- All kits will be shipped free!
We have three color options:
- Wandering in Wheatfields
- Watching the Rain
- Walking in the Woods
Need needles? You'll need a 32" US7 circular for this project - choose your preference: 'WITH needle’ or 'NO needle'
Knitalong Starts on June 4. The first clue will be sent out on Sunday, June 4 via email. The clues include pictures and tutorials as needed, but if you need additional help, you can join our Thursday Zoom Sit&Knit at 7:30 PM Central Time.
Note: Your kit will be delivered at the end of May.
This kit INCLUDES the clues - do not buy those separately.
