Mystery History Workshop

Mystery History Workshop

Are you ready for a new Westknits Workshop? Dive into the world of Westknits Mystery Shawls and enjoy a mystery history lesson of the first 13 designs. My Mystery Knit Alongs embrace surprises, learning new things, and knitting into the unknown. Every year thousands of knitters participate in a new MKAL and explore color, texture, and shaping to create a wearable work of art.

Many knitters modify the shawl with extra colors or textures, so this workshop will also provide you with lots of ideas on how to modify the details and sizes of shawls. I will share my design process for each pattern and talk about how to choose colors for the mesmerizing mystery shawls. You will also learn several knitting tips and tricks related to my previous 13 mystery shawls that you can apply to your knitting projects too! Grab your knitting and enjoy this marvelous display of Westknits Mystery Shawls with me! 

Sign up by the end of the month to get the workshop for €40 (plus VAT for EU/UK). This workshop includes a free pattern coupon code for a Westknits pattern of your choice (free code applied to all my patterns except the new Geogradient MKAL pattern).
