Dive into the world of Westknits Mystery Shawls and enjoy a mystery history lesson of the first 13 MKAL (mystery knit along) designs. Westknits Mystery Shawl 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 the 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!
