amirisu Mystery KAL 2022: Memories of Moonlight
amirisu is holding our second annual Mystery KAL in September!
In a Mystery Knit Along (known a Mystery KAL or MKAL), participants knit a shawl section by section without knowing what the finished design will be. A new section of the pattern (a "clue") is revealed each week. Completing each clue brings participants one step closer to finishing the shawl and revealing the complete design.
There are many ways a Mystery KAL can be held and different themes they can have. For this year's MKAL, Tokuko designed a shawl based on an original concept: Memories of Moonlight. Each clue features a scene that serves as the inspiration for the motifs in that clue.
Join us for this year's MKAL to enjoy knitting along to the story!
