I bought the Westknits Mystery Shawl : Earth and Sky pattern on Ravelry in late July. This was my first mystery pattern purchase and I absolutely love how it turned out.
So the whole idea behind this is: buy the shawl pattern and an email will come every Monday in August with a link to the next clue, so by the end of the month you'll have knit a complete shawl.
I chose to use yarn that I had in my stash already (a goal of mine for the next 6 months). I chose Quince and Company's Tern yarn in a lovely brown and blue called Barnacle and Boothbay, and the rest of a skein of Noro Sock that I bought to finish the Sweet Jazz Scarf.
Here is Week 1 - Clue 1...
Week 2 - Clue 2
Week 3 - Clue 3
I waited until clue 4 was out before I finished clue 3 so there isn't a picture.
Week 4 - Clue 4
This shawl blocked out great! I ended up knitting the medium size and the Option 2 edging to end the shawl.
I had moments knitting this when I thought I didn't like it but now that it's done, I find myself drawn to the bold colours and shapes. It's really soft and warm! Here are a few FO shots taken during a super hot afternoon last week!
So would I do another mystery shawl?
It was fun!
