The abundant swath of dahlias sway against the skyline, seeming to wave their last farewells to the summer sun. At the height of their bloom, autumn seeps into the air like a whisper and the landscape takes on a richer hue. Dahlia’s soft petals, perfect and vibrant, beckon us into the season… and on to Clue One of SweetGeorgia Yarn’s 5th Annual Mystery Knit-Along (MKAL)!
Week One’s clue is going to walk you through the Gauge Swatch (if you haven’t already done it), the shawl setup, and three different stitch patterns. The best part is getting to jump right into using all the different colours!
Update on Aug 5, 2022: three small errors were found on Rows 2, 4, and 6 of the Mosaic Increase. Version 1.1 was sent out to everyone, but feel free to check out www.sweetgeorgiayarns.com/errata; we update it frequently.
Of course, we have a few helpful tutorials to get you rolling if you’re new to shawl knitting:
You can see all of our free knitting tutorials HERE.
This afternoon, at 3pm EST, we’re getting together for an Autumn Dahlias Cast-On Party. You’ll find the Zoom link in your Planning PDF. Whether you cast on with us, be sure to share your progress with us right here on the SweetGeorgia Yarns Blog or the School of SweetGeorgia Forums (for SOS members). We can’t wait to see how your colours come together.
PS—If you haven’t already, go grab the Autumn Dahlias pattern from our website or Ravelry to join in.
