This kit was assembled for Twists & Turns, the 2022 Westknits MKAL design.

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.

Stephen has hand-picked this MKAL Kit and it contains everything you will need for the MKAL - except your needles and of course the pattern! Old Maiden Aunt's Merino/Bamboo is a beautiful soft blend of Merino and Bamboo that has great stitch definition.

The included Westknits Pattern Download Code can be used for any Westknits pattern of your choice on Ravelry! If you are unable to access Ravelry, please contact customer service at for assistance.

  • 2 skeins Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino/Bamboo in Midnight Owl
  • 2 skeins Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino/Bamboo in Put on the Day
  • 1 skein Old Maiden Aunt Superwash Merino/Bamboo in Kelpie
