Well, my friends, here we are. Clue Five and the very last week of our Autumn Dahlias Mystery Knit-Along.
Summer fades into the cool brush of wind across the fading petals, but not without one last burst of colour with some late dahlia blooms. One more chance to delight amidst the yellow leaves just falling. Similarly, Clue Five has its own pop of texture and colour before you’re done. And at the end, I hope you walk away with a fun, personal, cozy shawl to be proud of.
August 30, 2022: Clue Five updated to Version 1.01 – The updated version adds a missing “Join CC1” at the beginning of Final Garter Decrease.
August 30, 2022: Clue Five updated to Version 1.1 – The updated version corrects Row 29 in both the chart and written instructions. The chart was missing the s2kp and then it should read k5 after the s2kp (not k6).
I have one last tutorial to help you near the end of Clue Five: Knitting Tutorial—Picot Bind Off.
Remember to take your time and relish the connection each stitch brings. That connection is the best part of an MKAL. We’ve been in this together from Day One, which means you carry everyone’s heart in the work of your shawl to carry you through the season ahead.
