ABOUT THE MYSTERY KNIT-ALONG
“Every dahlia is love’s perfection in bloom.”
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 SweetGeorgia Yarn’s 5th Annual Mystery Knit-Along (MKAL).
This year’s MKAL is playful and colourful, evoking a delightful sense of abundance. Delicate lines and subtle patterns let the colours take over, like when autumn dahlias overtake the garden at the close of summer. With gradient sock blanks and contrasting skeins, you’ll reveal, clue by clue, a beautiful, wearable shawl at the end of five weeks. This is a MKAL you won’t want to miss.
We’ve put the following sets together to help take some of the guesswork out, available HERE! (Note that the pattern is not included with the set.) The original sample was knit in Antique Blush.
Knitters will need to know how to work: left, right, and centred decreases; knit front & back and yarn over increases; slipped stitches; picking up stitches; and cable and long-tail cast on.
HOW DO I PARTICIPATE IN THE MKAL?
Simply purchasing the Autumn Dahlias MKAL Pattern automatically ensures you’ll receive every clue update, as well as the full pattern once it is launched.
All the fun and camaraderie of the MKAL will take place on the SweetGeorgia Yarns Blog and, for School of SweetGeorgia members, the Autumn Dahlias MKAL Group. Be sure to check either of these spots for commentary, chat, tutorials, and announcements.
The SweetGeorgia Blog will also feature announcements and tutorial links.
