Have you finished Chart B of your Summer Mystery Shawlette? If you have, your work will look something like this:
And a close-up:
Now it is time . . . time for Chart C of the Summer Mystery Shawlette!
Get your copy here (in pdf format).
EDT: If you downloaded the pdf before 6:30pm on May 26 and you are knitting from the written out directions, please download it again — there was an error in Row 5 (written out) that has been corrected.
Again, you need to read the pattern carefully, as you will be knitting the 24 rows of this chart multiple times — how many times depends on whether you added stitches to your shawl. Fear not, all is explained in this piece of the pattern. So please do read it.
This is a bigger chunk o’ knitting than the previous clues, being 72 rows worth (if you are not resizing it, but knitting the pattern as written). But remember, the rows are getting shorter, so by the time you are done with this clue you will only 49 stitches total on your needles.
I timed it so this clue would be posted right before Memorial Day weekend so that those of you for whom this is a holiday weekend will have more to occupy your needles while you are enjoying a hopefully long weekend.
The final clue will be released a week from today, on June 2 at approximately 4:30 pm EDT.
Yes, just what I needed — more yarn.
This is Aade Long, an Estonian wool yarn that reminds me a lot of Kauni. I purchased mine from an eBay seller in Latvia, whose store is here. I can recommend this store — the prices are low, the shipping is reasonable, and the seller nice.
This is a fingering weight wool with long color repeats and approximately 440 yards per 100 grams. I think I’ll use mine to knit another triangle shawl.
I am knitting along on the Estonian Pi . . .
And Lucy is too busy to supervise.
