We are a week away from the release of Clue #1 of the Flywheel M-KAL! I’ve decided to start the prizes early for this M-KAL. If you know me, you know I think swatching is a valuable and important part of the knitting process. Any M-KAL-er who posts a photo of their swatch for Flywheel is eligible to win this pair of hand-made stitch markers:
Details for the drawing are posted in the Remily Knits forum.
Many thanks to Jane for crafting these (and many more!) fabulous stitch markers especially for me to give away during this M-KAL. She does beautiful work.
Today is the big day! Flywheel is up on Ravelry!
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.
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
