It’s time for a STASH BUSTER Mystery KAL! The Mystery continues with a cure for your holiday hangover.
The winter holidays are done. We’ve baked and/or gift-knitted our hearts out, and we may still be a bit hung over from all the fun and stress that December brings. Let’s cleanse our palettes a bit with a fun mystery that’s an enjoyable, pretty darn easy knit!
More layers, more recipes, more relaxation. This low-stress mystery knitalong is for a small, scraptastic cowl project that’s meant to use up a bunch of leftover bits of yarn). Add in half a skein of sock yarn for your Main Color, and you’re all set!
The Great British Baking Cowl: Holiday Hangover MKAL will begin January 28!
The Details:
Once you purchase the cowl pattern, you’ll receive a download link for a planning sheet with detailed yardage information.
As each clue is released (see dates below), you’ll receive an updated pattern link that contains a new pdf for that clue.
The Dates:
Clue 1 will be released on Tuesday, Jan 28th, 2020
Clue 2: Tuesday, Feb 4th
Clue 3: Tuesday, Feb 11th
This project is all about using up scraps on a MC background, and the exact yardage is listed and number of colors used as a guide and for the purpose of writing the pattern. You absolutely don’t need to use 10 different contrasting colors! You could use just 1 contrasting color + the MC. Or 6 contrasting colors + the MC. Or just keep using scraps + the MC until you run out of scraps. You can even change contrasting colors in the middle of a row or round if you run out. Any color progression of the scraps that looks pleasing to you and makes you happy will totally work .
