MKAL 2022 is here!

MKAL 2022 is here!


I am so excited to announce that the kits for this year's Westknits Mystery Knit Along are here! You can shop my kits at Stephen & Penelope here. This time it is all about Twists & Turns, so get your needles ready to begin the Westknits MKAL adventure. It's going to be the best shawl yet!

For the Twists & Turns pattern, you will need five skeins in three different colors of fingering weight yarn.

MC (main color) - 2 skeins (200g total)
CC (contrast color) - 2 skeins (200g total)
AC (accent color) - 1 skein (100g total)

This pattern knits up beautifully in solid, semi-solid, and lightly speckled yarn. We worked with so many amazing dyers this year and I can't wait for you to see all the stunning kits we have put together for you. From striking color pops to more subtle, nuanced palettes, you will find something you love. I curated all the beautiful kits at Stephen & Penelope to work perfectly with the Twists & Turns pattern and I am so excited to see all of the wonderful creations you knit with the kit of your choice! Which colour combination will you choose?
