This Year’s Mystery Knit Along

As I have done in past years, I enjoyed participating in this year’s westknits mystery knit along. From the beginning I figured the shawl would be different than other years as it really did seem to use less yarn, or at least fewer colors. That was indeed the case.

I went with a fall theme really, I had been choosing colors that looked autumnal to me at the time. I think maybe I may have veered pretty far into the Halloween direction. But I do appreciate the color scheme.

I enjoyed the different various elements to this shawl and I am glad I knit it!

My absolute favorite part are these icord embellishments woven into the antler cables.

The braided pieces were my other favorite new technique, it really gives the shawl a unique texture.

I’ve knit tons of twisted stitches before but I wanted to get a close up of that element to the shawl as well.

This was a really enjoyable knit, titled Twists and Turns. The westknits mystery shawls are always so well thought out and planned. There’s never a technique that feels unapproachable since there’s entire youtube videos to go with every new technique and transition.

Now that this shawl is complete I am back to working my way through the westknits shawl book titled Painting Shawls. I have two in progress, Painting Waves and Painting Diamonds. I am about midway through both, and it’s entirely possible that they’ll wrap up around the same time.
