Our MKAL features an unreleased shawl pattern that can be knit in two sizes with lots of twists and turns (no buzz on what it will look like though . . .). This brand new, exclusive design is broken down into parts which are released as clues—you follow along each week with us, knitting a new section.
Upon purchase, you may download a PDF with yardage, gauge, and needle information, as well as the cast on instructions to prepare for the first clue, released on June 8, 2021
Each Tuesday afternoon, a new pattern section will wing its way to you via email and on Wednesday evenings we meet on Zoom for group knitting. The Mystery Knit Along reveal party will take place near the end of July. By the end of the knit along, you’ll have a brand new cuddly shawl, just in time for chilly fall weather!
A portion of the proceeds from each yarn kit will be donated to our "Summer of Bees" fundraiser to benefit the Spikenard Farm Honeybee Sanctuary.
***Each kit contains (select kit size and color from pull down menu):
Small sized kit: 1 skein of Targhee Tango Sport (choice of shade), MKAL pattern and participation fee + a sweet surprise
Large sized kit: 2 skeins of Targhee Tango Sport (choice of shade), MKAL pattern and participation fee + a sweet surprise
Includes enough yardage to easily complete the selected size.
Targhee Tango Sport is a 2 ply sport yarn spun from Targhee fiber sourced from one farm in Montana. Targhee has plenty of softness and retains a lively spring; the final yarn passes through the knitter’s hands like velvet and produces a light and cuddly-warm fabric with excellent stitch definition. It can be knit in a variety of applications from accessories to sweater garments to blankets and is particularly friendly for stranded colorwork.
Skeins are UNWASHED; swatches will require washing and drying to determine final gauge.
