"On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place."; Knights Who Say Knit KAL Kit

  • $130.00


I do love a good MKAL, and this one is going to be excellent! You need 2 skeins of a main color, and 6 mini skeins of about 140 yds per color, and I've put together 3 different themed kits for you to choose from!

 

This set is "On second thought, let's not go to Camelot. It is a silly place."

it is 2 full skeins of chain mail, and 6 minis in green, orange, purple, red, yellow, and blue

this set is available on two different bases: Marcel silk  merino and Edith Merino. The silk merino has a lovely sheen and feel, and the Edith base is a 17 micron merino that is nearly as soft as a fluffy bunny (not the killer variety)

 

From the pattern page, here are some details on the MKAL pattern:

I seek the finest and silliest knitters to join me in a this quest for the grail! You have proven yourself worthy--Will you join us? There will be coconuts! Unladen swallows! And you must bring us….a SHRUBBERY!

This Very Silly MKAL is for a shawl, and I’ll go ahead and tell you that will end up being rectangular with a fun construction. It’s a “festival of stitches” sort of project that will feature several different stitch patterns, many of which will be repeated in the project, and some that make only a cameo appearance (Zoot would understand).

TIMING
