The Westknits Mystery Knit A Long (or MKAL) is an annual mystery shawl knit-along hosted by Stephen West. Every year, thousands of knitters cast on a new shawl, not knowing what they'll end up with. When the MKAL kicks off in October you will receive one clue weekly for four weeks, until your mystery shawl is complete!
Stephen has curated a selection of exclusive MKAL kits for Stephen & Penelope. He's worked with some of our favourite hand-dyers to create palettes especially for this design, and this year, we're including a selection of knitting related goodies with your kit to maximise your MKAL fun.
Fingering-weight Loft from Brooklyn Tweed channels Targhee-Columbia wool’s airy bounce into feather-light lace and accessories. Loft is a woolen-spun 2-ply yarn with delicate twist, specially designed for unique lightness of hand. It’s not a sock yarn, so treat it a little more gently when it’s on the winder and the needles. Once your garment is blocked, the stitches will cohere in a beautifully even and sturdy fabric. This yarn is not Superwash treated.
Please note that the pattern codes are not included with any MKAL yarn sets. Patterns will be available for purchase on Ravelry and Gumroad, with the first clue publishing 9 October, and info sheets available prior with needle sizes and gauge information.
