Fancy a Mystery KAL?

No idea what a Mystery KAL is?

A Mystery KAL is a knitalong where the pattern is delivered in weekly 'clues' and you don't know what the complete shawl is going to look like until you get the last clue. This is my first Mystery KAL and I've been planning it for months and I'm very excited about it. Although I did design a Mystery Blanket for Let's Knit a couple of years ago.
 We'll start on 15 October and there will be 5 weekly clues. The KAL will be run on Ravelry and there will be help and support in my Ravelry group. Each week you'll receive an e-mail with the link to download the next part of the pattern.

A few details:
The shawl is knitted in Twinkle Lace but you can use any laceweight yarn which has 800m/880yds per 100gr. You'll need 3.5mm needles. I recommend circular needles as you'll have quite a lot of stitches by the end. The edging has beads added which is optional. The beads are added using the crochet hook method. but if you don't want to add beads that's fine too.
So what do you do if you fancy joining in? Go to the pattern page on Ravelry to sign up. it's only £1.50 until 25 October. After that the sign up closes. After the KAL has finished the pattern will be available for general sale at £3. Participants can download the full pattern for free after the KAL has finished.

The KAL will be run from my Ravelry group where you can get help and support. You don't have to join the Ravelry group though.

In about a wee's time I'll publish a stitch pattern that you can use to check your tension and to see if you're happy with the fabric you get with your chose yarn and needles.

Will you join me on this exciting adventure?
