Michelle Hunter is hosting another mystery knit-along! This time, she's tackling cables and finishing skills with the Cable Channel pillow.
This mystery begins on April 4, when you can download the first clue from Michelle's website. A new clue will be added every Thursday throughout April.
As always, Michelle will be on Ravelry, answering questions and providing support. She's the best!
The KAL is free, and no registration is required.

If you've ever struggled with the decrease section when knitting a hat on 16-inch circular needles, you need to learn the Magic Loop method of knitting. Similarly, if you hate how sweater sleeves twist up while knitting in the round, you need to learn the magic loop technique.
This technique works on just about any size project, so you can use it exclusively for smaller projects in the round, such as hats, sleeves, mittens, cowls, socks, and so on.
Kelley just finished knitting the Shift Cowl by Andrea Mowry, and she's fallen in love with mosaic knitting.
While it sounds complicated or fiddly—mosaics are made up of little pieces of glass, after all—mosaic knitting is super easy. Seriously, you end up with a beautiful colorwork project, but you're only using one color in each row.
