Pacific Coast Tour Mystery Knit Along


The mystery knit along that travels around the country has a new name - Knitting Escapades - but the same talented designers, Cynthia Spencer and Valerie Reed. This year they're taking us on a tour of the Pacific Coast - from Hawaii to Alaska. The knit along launched on Local Yarn Shop day - April 27, 2024

    • Choose Beads. There will be clues that include the option of incorporating seed beads. We've made some recommendations for each yarn combination. You will likely need about 3 tubes. You could choose 3 colors or 3 tubes of 1 color. If you can't pick a color,  Silver Lined Crystal is neutral and looks good on everything.  Check out more of our 6/0 beads.

    To add the beads to your shawl you will need either a dental floss threader (available from your local pharmacy), a small crochet hook or an Elastic Cord Needle.
