I do so love a mystery KAL.  Please join in the fun! I’m hosting the Flywheel M-KAL in the Remily Knits forum on Ravelry.  You’ll find all the details there, of course, but here is most crucial information.

Pattern Information
This triangular shawl is worked from the top down. Flywheel begins with a garter-stitch tab and progresses through all stitch patterns with regular increases at the spine and both edges. The shawl is designed to be made with two skeins of fingering-weight yarn in complementary colorways (choose semi-solid or tonal colorways for best results). Clues alternate between the two colorways, resulting in broad stripes. Each clue features a different stitch pattern, with transitions between clues.

Finished Size: appx 74” tip to tip and 37” down the spine

Yarn: A Hundred Ravens Llyr 438 yd/400 m per 3.5 oz/100 g skein; Color 1: “Thames” (sample used about 340 yards); Color 2: “Grass” (sample used about 430 yards)
Gauge: 20 sts = 4” in stockinette stitch (exact gauge is not critical for this project; however it will affect yardage needed to complete shawl)
Tools: #4/3.5mm circular needle, stitch markers, cable needle, tapestry needle

CO Monday: Flywheel, a new shawl design!

I’m very excited about my latest design project!  I hardly dare say it (because jinx), but it’s coming together so effortlessly, and I looooove it so much! Here’s a bit of the first motif:

One of the joys of being and indie designer is that I can share photos whenever I like! So there.

My new collection of shawls is called “Clockwork.”  Each shawl will feature different fingering-weight yarn from A Hundred Ravens.  I’m using the yet-to-be-released spring/summer colors, and each two-skein shawl will feature two different colorways. I’ve seen some preview skeins, and they are unspeakably lovely, so I hope you are all super jealous 🙂 :).

I swatched madly and then cast on for the first shawl, Flywheel, this week, using Llyr, a silk/wool blend with all the drape and shine you’d expect.  I’m using two semi-solid colorways, and some really interesting and fun stitch patterns.  This design will probably be my mystery KAL pattern for the collection.
