I’ve joined Rachel Henry’s mystery shawl KAL, Capriole and can’t wait for clue 1 to arrive in my Ravelry mailbox this Friday.
I love shawls, especially semi-circular shawls and it’s been hard for me to decide what yarn to use but I’ve decided to use my stash of Springtree Road Muscadine Sock in the color Tanis. After swatching, I noticed that I may have to go up a needle size as I tend to knit a bit tight. So with that said, I think I will be using a US 8 (5.0 mm).
Here’s the details from Rachel’s Ravelry design page for Capriole:
KAL Details: The Mystery KAL for Capriole begins now, with the release of this Swatch Clue. The swatch includes several special stitches, and will thus allow you to practice them before beginning your actual shawl. All clues will be given both as complete charts and full written directions.
Schedule for Clues: Clues will be released via Ravelry sometime after midnight, EST, on four consecutive Wednesdays.
- March 27th: Clue #1 – Setup and first 40 rows.
- April 3rd: Clue #2 – Rows 41-68
- April 10th: Clue #3 – Rows 69-88
- April 17th: Clue #4 – Rows 89-101, plus blocking advice
Cost: For the duration of the KAL, and for at least two weeks after the release of the final clue, Capriole will cost only $1. After that point, the pattern will be changed to the regular price of $6. When I release the final version of the pattern, it will replace the individual clues in your Ravelry library.
If anyone would like to join me in the fun, there’s still time and be sure to join the Remily Knits group too! I will be posting progress photos along the way and would love to link my posts to others who are knitting along too.
