Just Beachy MKAL by Lisa K Ross

Posted by Sally Ridgway on

I am delighted to be a part of the Just Beachy MKAL by Lisa K Ross of @paperdaisycreations.

I have been selected as an Australian supplier of yarn kits for this MKAL!

They are available here and have enough yarn to complete the pattern. Rest easy! All techniques with charts also include written instructions. There is no stranded colorwork, cables, short rows, or brioche. This design is intended for intermediate knitters.

All the good info from Lisa!

Introducing the Just Beachy MKAL… a colorful MYSTERY WRAP that will be revealed through 6 clues released over the next few months! When you purchase this design, you will immediately receive access to the Getting Ready Guide, which includes all the information you need for curating your yarn palette and preparing to cast-on! You’ll also receive the Swatching Guide with all the details on how to try out your colors and ensure you’ve got the right needles for your knitting style. Need a little reassurance? Check out Garden Variety, last year’s mystery wrap. This one is completely different, but is intended for the same audience!

 check out Lisa's FAQs page on Ravelry!

Who’s ready for a day at the beach?! It’s no secret that lounging in the sand and listening to the waves crash onto the shore is a great way to relax. Playing in the surf, swimming in the water, or paddling over the surface, there’s no limit to the fun to be had! This mystery wrap combines simple, relaxing stitches with the thrill of underwater adventures. You’ll discover new techniques, play with garter and stockinette in new ways, and experience unique construction that, like any good beach read, will keep you guessing what comes next. I’ve created tutorial videos that will guide you along the way, and have created KAL threads to join others all over the world on this beachy vacation! You’ll find all the links you need at the end of each clue. Take a deep breath… it’s time to dive in!

What to expect:
While there are a lot of surprises hidden within this design, here are some things that you can expect:

  • slip-stitch knitting
  • lace
  • elongated and/or unique stitches
  • frequent color changes
  • cable twists
  • eyelets
  • unique construction

    Rest easy! All techniques with charts will also include written instructions. I’ve created tutorial videos to guide you through any new techniques. There will NOT be any stranded colorwork, short rows, or brioche. This design is intended for intermediate knitters, but could be suitable for an adventurous beginner. The best part of a KAL… there will be lots of help from knitters along the way!

    Finished dimensions:
    Shhhh… it’s a secret! Looking at the yarn requirements, you can deduce that this will be an opulent piece for your wardrobe. Take a look at Garden Variety (last year’s mystery wrap with the same yardage requirements) to get a general idea of the size.

    Beach Supplies:
    Needles:
    Two sets of US 5 (3.75mm) circular needles, or as required to meet gauge; 40”/100cm or 47”/120cm recommended (NOTE: One of the two sets of needles can be smaller than gauge to put stitches on hold.)

    Gauge:
    BLOCKED: 20 sts and 40 rows = 4”/10cm in garter stitch after wet-blocking and pinning
    UNBLOCKED: 24 sts and 48 rows = 4”/10cm in garter stitch before blocking
    (NOTE: Gauge is not crucial, but it will affect finished dimensions and yardage)

    Notions:
    Stitch markers (number varies by section) and a tapestry needle
    Optional: blocking wires, pins, and mats (see this page for my favorites!)

    Yarn Requirements:
    MC: 800yds fingering weight yarn
    C1-7: 133yds fingering weight yarn in EACH of 7 colors
