Welcome to our annual MKAL! This year’s MKAL is the third in our “The Unique Sheep” global elements series. From sun to water to wind, Solar Flare Circular Shawl to Oceanic to now Air Bender, explore the heights and depths of God’s great creation through your stitches.
I’m eager to spill the beans but am doing my best to keep my naughty digits to saying only that you’ll be crafting a soft triangular-shaped shawl with three personalization options. That’s all she wrote until Clue 1 tomorrow ?.
During the review knit, I made some changes to the bind off, which changed the materials required. You’ll now need anywhere from 2 stitch markers to 151, depending on the personalization option you choose. Don’t fret, the stitch markers actually make it easier!
The social fun happens in two places – the Knit Eco Chic group on Ravelry and our new MKAL Slack group. This year Puddles and I are pleased to introduce our new Slack group for the MKAL fun.
How To Join the Slack Group:
Purchase your pattern (either with the buy now link, on Ravelry, or via e-mailing me for a paypal invoice)
Tell me the email address you’d like to join the Slack group with
Check your email for the Slack group invite (either from me or Puddles… it’s a human (non-automated) process so it might take up to a day)
Sign in and get social with your knitting!
When it comes to the final FO showing, I’ll pop into the slack group with a summary of completion from Ravelry and pop into Ravelry with a summary of completion from slack. Puddles will then order based on time stamp and run his random draw on the combined completion list for the prize drawings. You are more than welcome to join either or both groups, however, joining both will not increase your chance of winning.
Are you ready? Grab your pattern and these materials for lift off in T-1 day! I can’t wait to see all your beautiful stitches!!!
