If you purchased a Verb for Keeping Warm kit, there’s no need to purchase this mystery, as a code for a free pattern download is included.
This pattern uses a “pay what you can” model to make it more accessible to more people while helping me to defray some of the costs for my own time. You can purchase the KAL at the following price points:
$15 – no coupon code needed
$11 – use coupon code MysteryLove1 in your shopping cart
$9 – use coupon code MysteryLove2 in your shopping cart
$7 – use coupon code MysteryLove3 in your shopping cart
This listing is for a PDF downloadable hand knitting pattern only. You will have unlimited access to the downloads through your account. This is a mystery knit, so there are a few clues in the further description below, but you will not know what the finished product looks like until the end of the clues. That’s the fun of it! By purchasing this product, you will receive a full pattern broken into 5 “clues,” beginning April 22, 2022 and spaced one week apart. The pattern will then be compiled in March of 2023 and updated so that you receive the full copy in one PDF document.
See below for more pertinent info!
Welcome to my 2022 mystery shawl KAL! I don’t usually share a theme as we begin, but this year, the tenth year, is special. As I thought back through the years to how much has changed, I knew that this mystery needed to be about the passage of time. So much poetry and so many songs speak to the ravages of time, but I choose to look instead to healing and growth throughout the years. I hope you will join me in reflection and celebration of all we have been and will be.
This is a half circle using two colors of sport or fingering weight yarn, 385 to 438 yards each. It’s my favorite shape, so I’m breaking with the alternating shapes tradition a little, as this year would have been a triangle after last year’s crescent. The first clue will be released digitally on April 22, 2022. The KAL will have 5 clues total, each one week apart. One year after the KAL is over, your mystery pattern will update to the full pattern.
We will be knitting together in the @Romi’s Studio forum, and I will also be doing YouTube lives and meetups! Each Friday, you’ll receive a link for a Live at 4pm that afternoon. A Verb for Keeping Warm is hosting meetups too! The YouTube lives will remain accessible as recordings. I hope you’ll join us in the fun!!!
Hints before the first clue:
- Although Annapurna is listed as sport weight in the Ravelry database, I would say it is on the light side, and knits up like a fingering weight. Either sport or fingering weight will work. Floating and Rumor are fingering weight yarns.
- I am using the Pan Dulce (peach with washes of pink)/Lady Extravaganza (deep coral) colorway and starting with the lighter color.
- Do not substitute a yarn of which you have less than 385 yards.
