Your MKAL Collections

It's amazing to see all of your beautiful Westknits MKAL shawl collections, from last year's Shawlography to my very first mystery shawl, the Earth & Sky. I put so much love and care into designing the mystery shawl every year and it's really exciting to watch you all knit the pattern I've spent the past year working on. Twists & Turns is going to be a stunning addition to this MKAL family and I can't wait to see what you guys create!

When posting on Instagram please post your knitted WIP as the second photo on a multi-photo post to prevent spoilers.
