Welcome to my 2022 mystery shawl KAL! I don’t usually share a theme as we begin, but this year, the tenth year, was 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 was released digitally on April 22, 2022. The KAL had 5 clues total, each one week apart. One year after the KAL is over, your mystery pattern will update to the full pattern (now updated; pattern files include both clues and a full pattern).
