4 colors of fingering weight yarn (ca. 366-400 m per 100 g)
366 m / 400 yds / 1 skein per color
1464 m / 1600 yds / 4 skeins in total
21 sts / 42 rows = 10 cm / 4″ in garter stitch
21 sts / 21 rows = 10 cm / 4″ in brioche stitch
Measured after blocking. Gauge has an influence on the size of your finished shawl and your yardage!
US 4 / 3.5 mm circular needles (or size needed to obtain gauge and optimal drape); plus larger needle-size (e.g. US 7/4.5 mm) for bind-off;
While one set of circular needles with a long cable (at least 100 cm / 40″) is sufficient, a second set with a shorter cable (60-80 cm / 24-32″) or DPNs in the same needle size is recommended!
tapestry needle, 2 stitch markers
How it works:
You will get some basic information before the start of the MKAL on May 21, so you can have all your materials ready to go, and you also get three pieces, and only three, of information on the project on the design:
- It’s a shawl.
- You need four colors of fingering weight yarn.
- The probability for brioche is 100%.
The pattern is split up into four parts, which will be released one week apart starting May 21 (see schedule below for details).
If you’ve already purchased the pattern beforehand, you will get an automatic e-mail with a download link sent to you.
You can get started right away as soon as each part is released, join in later, or wait until all parts have been released and you can see the full design; you don’t have to finish each part before the next is released! Please knit at your own pace and just enjoy the process! It’s supposed to be a fun communal knit-a-long, not a race to the blocking mat!
Basic knitting skills are required, but the pattern will be fully supported with video tutorials and I will host live Q&As, post tips and tricks, and answer questions when they arise, so you should be able to follow along, even if you are new to brioche knitting.
If you want to get some practice in, have a look at the Brioche Basix tutorial, or use the gauge swatch to get familiar with the technique.
The social aspect of a knit-a-long is at least as important and the pattern. I want all knitters to be able to share their progress, ask questions (and get answers from me, the designer, and other knitters knitting along), and cheer each other on.
