I joyously invite you to join myself and my designer friend, Sarah Alderson, for our third annual mystery knit-along (MKAL), leading you in an intrepid knitting adventure with juicy new techniques to learn, and lots of fun to be had whilst knitting a unique pair of socks.
The MKAL is designed to stretch your creativity by giving you not one, but two options for each section of the socks. We will send out a section of two great linked designs each week and the choice becomes yours. You may decide to make both socks the same, or On The Other Foot you may decide to do things differently.
To sign up for the MKAL:
- Buy the pattern. This gets you immediate access to the preliminary information, then the weekly pattern updates as detailed below.
- Join the MKAL Ravelry group.
- Post in the signup thread in the Ravelry group.
The innovative MKAL will start with part one of the designs on the 9th of March, followed by Part Two on the 16th, Part Three on the 23rd, Part Four on the 30th, and Part Five on the 6th of April. The final full pattern will be revealed on the 13th of April with winners chosen and prizes announced for those who have posted pictures of their completed socks in our Ravelry group forum page. Participants will automatically receive an email with the pattern update on these dates to download the next section. Each part will have one option designed by Sarah Alderson and one option designed by Ann Kingstone. They can be mixed and matched giving you many different sock pattern options!
We will be supporting you throughout the MKAL with online video tutorials and advice on our blogs, Periscope, Twitter, Instagram and Facebook groups. In our Ravelry group we will have forum threads for each update, spoiler threads and a finished sock thread as well as chat and prize giveaways. We love seeing your colour and yarn choices and sharing with you the fun of a MKAL.
