It’s time for the annual Westknits MKAL (Mystery Knit A Long)! The MKAL is Stephen West's annual Mystery Shawl Knit Along and this year’s shawl is called is called Shawlography. Cast on the Shawlography mystery shawl on October 8 and knit together throughout the month of October as a section of the pattern is released each week until the final design is revealed. The Mystery Shawl is a complete surprise, so when you sign up by purchasing the pattern, you just know what types of yarn and needles you need along with colour recommendations. 

Stephen says: "It’s important to have contrast amongst your colours in order to see the details and crisp lines in the fabric. Solid, semi-solid, and lightly speckled fingering weight yarns are all great options for this year’s shawl. Try to avoid using very busy variegated and highly speckled yarns for all of the colors. It’s okay to have some painterly splashes for some of your colours, but I recommend crisp clean contrast for this year’s shawl."

Yarn required: 5 colours of fingering weight yarn (100g or at least 347m of each colour)
