Legend says that one night Robert Johnson went down to the crossroads in Mississippi and made a deal with the Devil. He asked the Devil for extraordinary musical talent, offering up his soul in return.
Come on down to the Crossroads for the first Brew City Yarns Mystery Knit-A-Long! Starting on October 1st, 4 clues will be released weekly to knit the Crossroads Shawl.
The Crossroads Shawl is a richly-textured shawl knit up in two main colors with a unique use of mini-skeins as accents. The entire shawl is knit in two-color brioche, but with a twist! Never tried two-color brioche? It’s actually EASIER than one-color brioche, because you can always tell which yarn you are working with.
This design was created so that knitters can use bright, variegated yarns that result in a shawl that is unique but tied together. You can go stash diving for the MKAL, but Brew City Yarns is also offering four kit choices: Buffy Vampire Slayer, Supernatural, Moulin rouge and Wizards.
Retailing at $130.00, each kit contains 600 yds/150g of the two main colors, 400 yds/100g of coordinating mini-skeins (5-pack), plus the MKAL pattern! This is ample yarn for all sizes of the shawl. Both the main colors and mini-skeins are dyed on our premium Draft fingering yarn with an 80% superwash merino 20% nylon fiber content.
It is recommended that you download the pattern intro prior to the MKAL to read over the Color Theory tutorial so that you can make your yarn choices.
The Crossroads MKAL begins in October and you will be sent an automatic update of the pattern with each clue on the following dates:
Clue One – October 1st ● Clue Two –October 8th ● Clue Three – October 15th ● Clue Four – October 22nd
