Mystery Sock IX: Crazy Quilt
The Fun Starts January 27th!
The annual Mystery Sock KAL is our most popular knit-along each year! Join us for some fun, and you might even win a prize!
Description: Crazy Quilts, all the rage in the late 1800s, were characterized by visually interesting details in random piecework, varieties of angles, diverse stitch patterns, and happy directional confusion.
This year's Mystery KAL captures the spirit of crazy quilting, and translates it to yarn and sock knitting. Boredom is not an option with this toe-up design, that is being presented in a series of Seven Weekly Clues that will keep you entertained and maybe even teach you a new trick or two! The pattern contains instructions in text and charts, and, as always, there will be video support to help you with techniques that might be new to you. The pattern is written for three sizes:
No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL, but kits are available for $24 in your choice of 32 colors and three sock yarns by scrolling below. Or, if you prefer to visit your stash, you can download the pattern for free on Ravelry beginning 1/27/17!
How to Play Along:
The Moderating Brewmistress also reserves the right to add any needed guidelines that she may have overlooked. She is blonde, you know. She has also been known to release clues early if the group whines loudly enough!
At noon (Pacific time) on Friday, March 24, the names of all participants who have posted a photo on the Ravelry discussion board of at least one completed sock will be entered into the random drawing for prizes. No yarn purchase is necessary to participate in this KAL, however the Grand Prize will be awarded to a knitter who uses any Knitters Brewing Company Sock-aholic yarn. Knitters who use other brands of yarn are eligible for the Runner-Up prizes.
Runner Up Prizes (2 to be awarded): A $25 Gift Certificate from Knitters Brewing Company.
Grand Prize (1 to be awarded): A $50 Gift Certificate from Knitters Brewing Company.
We hope you can join us for the quilting circle!!
