piu-piu mystery K.A.L. - FREE for a limit period of time

As promised during Hera’s K.A.L, another mystery knit a long would follow for welcoming Fall! First clue has been released today, November 17th, as scheduled, come and join the fun. The K.A.L. is hosted in my group in ravelry Seni designs :-)



Pattern description

Piu-piu is an asymmetrical shawl knitted bias in one piece, starting with only a few stitches on the needles. It has a cute border and attractive lines hence to the different patterns used – lace, mock cables, textured and elongated stitches – being somehow challenged and fun – you’ll never know what you encounter next! Even though it was especially designed for beautiful variegated yarns it works well with solid colors too.

MATERIALS: 582.4 – 669.7 m (636.9 – 732.4 yds) of sport yarn;  size 4 mm (US 6) circular needles; tapestry needle; 1 marker, pins or wires for blocking.

How it works

- I’ll provide a thread for each week’s clue where questions can be asked and progress pictures shared.
   
- Because this is a mystery K.A.L, I kindly ask you to not post any progress pictures until the K.A.L. is officially over - use the above picture for your project page photo, and share your W.I.P. in the weekly thread instead.

- You cannot reveal pattern clues or final pattern anywhere or send them to someone else; pattern is protected by copyright and is for personal use only. Please make sure the pattern instructions are not visible in the pictures.

- Everyone is welcome to participate and join the fun, please remember to link your project page to the pattern and add the tag piu-piuKAL :-)
