Product Description

MKAL running all through September 2014! Clue #3 available now. Purchase this pattern to get Clue #3 (which includes all previous Clues), or if you've already purchased, get a new download under "completed orders" by signing in to your store account.

This Mystery Knit-Along is a one-ball (or two-ball!) scarf that is a quick knit, with lovely textured results. 

It combines lace with some simple shaping techniques to give it beautiful body and structure. Choose the one-ball option, perfect for gift knitting, or choose the two-ball option if you prefer your scarves with a little more length.

A 70% kid mohair/30% silk blend yarn will give you the required, strong halo that complements the lace and a finished scarf that is sumptuous to touch. (A non-mohair yarn is not recommended, as the intended results will only work with the specific type of yarn suggested.)

I used Elann.com Silken Kydd, but have listed very similar options here (but please remember to substitute based on yardage, not balls of yarn or weight).

Choose a vibrant or soft color that will make you (or the gift recipient) happy. This is a fun, feminine, and sophisticated design that will be a delight to wear!

A slightly variegated color would work as well, though I would recommend more subtle color variations to allow the two different stitches to come through.


  • Initial Sign-up period ends August 31, 2014. (But feel free to join anytime in September, as Clues are all cummulative.)
