A guest post from Jenny Faifel of Sweater Freak Knits
Every holiday season, I like to run a little mystery KAL, sometimes it's a hat or a cowlette. This year I came up with something truly special - a cowl that is styled like a shawl but it doesn't have seams (like many other cowls that fit like a shawl do!).
It took a bit of tinkering and thinking, but it all worked out at the end just like I envisioned and I am pleased as peach!!!!
The first clue drops Dec 6th and the pattern is now on sale for 50% off at 3USD (no code needed!) till then. Get the pattern here and don't forget to visit the MKAL Chat thread to show us the yarn you plan to use! You can find all the details such as yarn info and dates on the pattern page.
Also, when you purchase the pattern, you get a 20% off coupon for the yarn pictured above - the very same yarn I used for my sample - naturally dyed Alpaca/Merino mix from Everlea Yarn. The code is valid till Dec 15th.
Hope to see you there!

You can help by submitting the details of an event or new locally designed knitting/crochet pattern, or other newsworthy item and I'll write a blog post about it here on the blog. Thank you! ~Janna Vallee
