Twists & Turns Stephen West MKAL 2022 Yarn Pack, pattern not included, ready to ship

Twists & Turns MKAL by Stephen West

We've put together some amazing combinations for this fabulous MKAL. Using Stephen's guidelines, we included no more than one speckled skein in your group, to maintain the "crisp clean contrast" he recommends. Five 100g fingering weight skeins will provide more than enough yarn for you to knit this 1900 yard shawl. Get ready for a fun ride!

These yarn packs are ready to ship to your knitting chair.

"The MKAL is back! The MKAL is my annual Mystery Shawl Knit Along and this year’s shawl is called is called Twists & Turns. We will cast on the Twists & Turns mystery shawl on October 6 and knit together throughout the month of October as I release a section of the pattern each week until the final design is revealed. The Mystery Shawl is a complete surprise, so when you sign up by purchasing the pattern, you only know what types of yarn and needles you need as well as some color recommendations.

It’s important to have contrast amongst your colors in order to see the details and crisp lines in the fabric. Solid, semi-solid, and lightly speckled fingering weight yarns are all great options for this year’s shawl. Try to avoid using very busy variegated and highly speckled yarns for all of the colors. It’s okay to have some painterly splashes for some of your colors, but I recommend crisp clean contrast for this year’s shawl."--from the designer

The pack includes enough yarn to make one shawl.
