The summer "Brooklyn Blossom" knit-along was so much fun we've decided to partner once more with Catherine of Brooklyn General Store to bring you a new series of knit-along parties for the fall.
This time the featured pattern is a "mystery" knit-along called "What the Fade?!" by Andrea Mowry, the rising star famous for the immensely popular "Find Your Fade" shawl.
What's a Mystery Knit-Along?
A knit-along is when a community of knitters decides to all work on the same project at the same time, helping, teaching, and encouraging each other as they go.
In a mystery KAL, the knitting pattern is broken down in "clues." Clues are small sections of the pattern released one at a time on a set schedule, and the participants do not even know what they are knitting while they work the clue (i.e. there are no photos). But with a talent like Mowry you know it's got to be gorgeous!
The first clue drops on August 31st, so you have plenty of time to visit Argyle or Brooklyn General to choose the six colors of yarn you'll use for this knit-along. Andrea Mowry used Hedgehog Fibres, which we have here at Argyle in both the Skinny Singles and the Sock yarn, but any fingering-weight yarn you love will fit the bill.
The pics above are of Mowry's recent designs. When you purchase the pattern online for "What the Fade?!" the first thing you'll receive is a welcome video. Then, the pattern will be revealed to you in sections between 8/31 and 10/12. Check out Andrea's Ravelry group to see pictures of other knitter's fade ideas.
It's casual and free to attend, but we do ask that if you're planning on coming please RSVP because seating is limited.
Note that the first night of the "What the Fade" KAL doubles as the wrap party for the Brooklyn Blossom. So if you joined us for the Brooklyn Blossom KAL, make sure to bring your finished shawl so we can all admire each other's creations!
