When:
May 31, 2017 @ 4:00 pm – 5:45 pm

If you have never participated in a Mystery Knit-A-Long (MKAL) before, here is your chance! Join us at Compatto (and over 1500 knitters on Ravelry) for a rare mystery knit-along adventure with the popular designer Joji Locatelli. From her own description: In the quest to knit this beautiful wrap (stole), we will have fun unveiling each clue while playing with color and texture.

Even though the point of a Mystery Knit Along is not knowing what you’ll be making, here are some facts about the wrap that will help you decide if you’d like to embark on this project:

  • The shape is a true rectangle. This wrap can be worn as a wrap, blanket scarf or even as a blanket.
  • Approx. measurements are 26½ x 72” (66 x 180 cm) blocked.
  • It has a graphic look, but is still classic.
  • You will need yarn in 5 colors and you will use up a lot of your yarn, so you’ll need full skeins.
  • The total approx. yardage is 1700 yards (1555 m). It is a BIG wrap.
  • There will be 5 weekly clues starting on May 12th, and ending with the reveal of the finished shawl on June 23.
  • It is good for Knitters of all levels. There will be TV knitting, and also some more engaged knitting. Fun, fun, fun!
  • There is no brioche involved and no short rows either.
  • There is a little bit of simple lace, about 10% of the total project.
  • There is a lot of garter stitch.
