Fall 2022 Mystery Knitalong Yarn Bundle



Join us on a month-long mystery knit along showcasing another Brown Sheep yarn.

This mystery knit illustrates the versatility of Shepherd’s Shades yarn, utilizing three hues within a color gradient to mark the progress of an asymmetrical triangle shawl as it moves from light to dark or dark to light. The heavy weight yarn, easily memorized lace and mosaic stitch patterns, and clever color play contribute to a swift and enjoyable knit.

Participants are encouraged to join our Fall MKAL forum on Spinning Yarns and share their progress on our social media channels using #BrownSheepFallMKAL2022.

An important note about color choices: This shawl was designed to make use of Shepherd’s Shades unique 3-color gradients. Knitters can choose for their shawl to progress from light to dark (color A is light, color B is medium, color C is dark) or dark to light (color A is dark, color B is medium, color C is light). Be mindful of your color progression preference when choosing a kit, and also if you decide to build your own color gradient for the shawl.
