Mystery KAL 2022
Biscotte Yarns is thrilled to invite you to a MYSTERY KAL!
First of all, what is a KAL??
Knit Alongs (KALs) are fun, social activities in which a group of knitters all make the same project in the same period of time.
So what is the MYSTERY part?
Mystery Knit Along (MKAL) is named that way because you don't know what the final result will look like. Parts of the pattern will be released each week, and at the end of the Knit Along, the final design is revealed.
For this specific Mystery KAL you will be making a shawl designed by Louise Robert. The name of the pattern is inspired by a song title by Robert Charlebois, Les ailes d’un ange (meaning “the wings of an angel” in French) and that's all the information you will have to begin 😉.
When does the Mystery KAL start?
The first part of the pattern will be released on Friday October 14, 2022.
How do I sign up?
You can purchase either the Mystery KAL pattern alone or the knitting kit including the yarn to knit this mystery project in one of our local yarn store or on BiscotteYarns.com. There will be several color assortment kits available, all named after a Robert Charlebois song.
You are invited to share your progress with other participants in the Ravelry group. If you share pictures on Instagram, please add the hashtag #BiscotteYarnsMKAL22 so everyone can see your work!
How do I get the pattern parts?
When you purchase the pattern in our local yarn store or through our website, you will receive a first email with a link to download the pattern (always check your spams folder in case you don’t find it in your inbox). The first downloadable document will be a welcome letter including all the details to find our group on Ravelry. Then, every Friday, you will receive an email when a new part is added to the pattern with a link to download it.
How many parts of the pattern will be sent?
The pattern will be divided into 6 parts, released on October 14, 21, 28 & November 4, 11 and 18.
What skill level is the MKAL designed for?
To achieve this pattern, you should know how to knit, purl, increase, decrease, work in the round and read a pattern. You will also find support from one of our teachers, Louise-Hélène, and other group members on the Ravelry group.
