November Mystery Knit Along

knit-along-november

Have you ever done a mystery project?  A mystery knit along is a fun way to work on a project.  Not only do you get to do some knitting, you also get to meet other knitters who are working on the same project.  It’s a fun way to turn an individual activity into something that’s fun and interactive.  Think of it like a book club for knitters.

Mystery Knit Along

The other fun part about mystery projects is that you start the project blind.  The designer, or coordinator or the knit along, will share only a portion of the pattern at a time.  The mystery of what techniques and stitches you’ll be working on adds to the fun of these projects.

Craftsy is hosting a Mystery Knit Along for November.  The pattern featured in this knit along was designed by Felicia Lo.  In addition to the pattern, you’ll also get:

  • Access to a web-based tutorial
  • Detailed written instructions
  • Up close photos to help walk you through the pattern
  • One skein of superwash wool yarn from SweetGeorgia

You can find lots of mystery projects and knit alongs on the web.  If you are a member of Ravelry, you can do a search to find one to join.  And if you’re not a knitter, there are also fun “craft-along” groups for crochet and other crafts.  Craftsy is also hosting a Mystery Crochet-Along for November, so there’s a project for everyone!

Mystery Crochet Along

Have you ever done a mystery project or joined a knit-along (or crochet along)?  Would love to hear what you thought.  I know that for me the only downside of a mystery project is that I don’t always have the time to keep-up with the pace of the project.  But that’s OK.  That just means that I end-up having all of the pattern available to me and I don’t have to wait for the next installment of the the pattern.  And I also benefit from seeing everyone’s comments and design ideas.  Because like any project, there’s always room to adjust a pattern to fit your style.
