Mystery Sock XII KAL

Mystery Sock XII:  Let it Snow

The Fun Starts January 17th!

The kits for this year's Mystery Sock KAL are SOLD OUT - sorry!  Bms12-logo.pngut you can still join us for the fun!  Read further for details on how to download the free pattern, what supplies you will need, and where to join us online!

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: Snow.  Whether you love it or choose to leave it, we are all affected by it in one way or another.  So this year, let's pay tribute to our icy friend and nemesis that brings us beauty, fresh water, and exciting sports, while also providing us with slippery surfaces, damaged trees and roofing, treacherous roads, and exhausting opportunities to shovel.  This cuff-down design is worked with two colors, and features snowy mosaic themes which will neither chill your needles nor melt in your lap.

This year's Mystery KAL is being presented in a series of Six 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:

  • Narrow Width:  6.0 - 7.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Medium Width:  7.5 - 9.5 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • Wide Width:  9.5 - 11 inch circumference at ball of foot
  • And foot length is determined by the knitter.

No yarn purchase is required to participate in the KAL.  You can download the pattern for free on Ravelry beginning 1/17/20!
