I recently took part in a Mystery Knit Along on Ravelry with a project called the Shawl Pin Shawl by Lindsay Lewchuck in the US. This involves being sent the beginning of a pattern along with other participants and following the different stages of the pattern as they are released one by one. All we knew about the knitted garment was that it was a shawl/scarf. At first, the idea of knitting something without seeing a picture of the finished object seemed quite daunting to me, but how wrong I was! The pattern was very well-written and explained and I found myself waiting in anticipation for the subsequent clues.
I really enjoyed the whole experience.
Here is the final result:
The pattern required a sport weight/4-ply yarn so I opted for the eco-stitch sport in the Rose colour way.
Here are some different ways of wearing the shawl/scarf, including 2 by Lindsay herself.
