FAQ:

What is an MKAL?
MKAL stands for Mystery Knit A Long! Knit Alongs (KALs) are fun, social activity in which a group of knitters all make the same project in a specified timeframe. A Mystery Knit Along adds an extra level of spice, because you won't know what the thing you're knitting is when you start. A section of the pattern (clue) is released each week, and at the end of the Knit Along, the final design is revealed. 

The Westknits MKAL is always a shawl design, and always incorporates interesting techniques (shaping, stitch patterns, and other design features), but beyond that, it's a mystery!

When does the MKAL start?
Clue one is released on 9 October 2020. 

How do I sign up?
Purchase the MKAL pattern on Ravelry or Gumroad and cast on! 

How do I get the clues?
The clues are released every Friday. If you purchase the pattern through Ravelry, you will receive an email and be able to update your pattern in your Library. If you purchase the pattern through Gumroad you will receive an email when the update is available for download.

How many clues are there?
There are four clues, released on 9 October, 16 October, 23 October and 30 October. 

Do I have to be an advanced knitter to participate?
The pattern will be suitable for adventurous beginners (you should already know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease, and read a pattern), and it will be enjoyable for seasoned knitters too. There will be photo tutorials and videos where they are necessary to assist you with visualizing the techniques and construction.
 
What yarn do I need to participate?
For this year's pattern, you'll need five skeins of fingering weight yarn: 2 skeins of a main colour and three contrast colours
