Following the theme of last year’s 1920’s Mystery Shawl KAL, we move along to the 1930’s. Inspired by the colors, textures and economic climate of the 1930’s, designer Jae Koscierzynski has hit another home run. I can say that because I’ve seen the swatches and the design. I think you will enjoy this knit, it is perfect for adventurous advanced beginners or intermediate knitters and beyond. There will be five clues, the pre-clue will be issued 3/7 with Clue A coming on 3/14, Clue B on 3/21, Clue C on 4/11, Clue D on 4/25, and ending with Clue E on May 9th. Note that we have set the clues up so they will come on Friday this year because we learned that you like to be able to plan knitting time for the weekend. This shawl is an arc (sort of heart-shaped so that it will fit nicely) worked from the bottom up. The first clue will go fast, which is why we only have a week until the second clue. This time out there will be no lace, but you can expect lots of texture and some cables. The yarn selected is sport weight Louet Gems. We have selected the colors in which we believe the shawl will look best, either knit in one solid color or in either of two selected colorways.
This year there is a fee to participate. Either $15 for the pattern OR, if you purchase your yarn through us, the pattern fee is waived. You can sign up and see the colors by clicking here or on the yarn pic at right. For yarn ordered prior to 2/15, you will receive a $10 discount. The KAL will be closed on 3/21. After that, later this year, you can get the pattern on Ravelry through Jae, Some Knitting Required.
