We're so excited to participate in the upcoming Transient Mystery Knit-Along to create a shawl knit with just one skein of the beautiful new alpaca yarn, Concentric,from HiKoo by Skacel.

The pattern will be free, and because it's a mystery knit-along, a new "clue" (a section of the pattern) will be released each week in April.

This is what Michelle has to say about this yarn and new project:

"Named after the concentric circles that this cake of yarn so closely resembles, these color gradients were carefully designed by the Skacel color specialists! Concentric is made from four non-plied strands, which create the distinctive color change. The colors change at a regulated sequence, allowing for a wide range of design possibilities.

In Transient, each color change will bring a different stitch pattern in this easy to wear shawl. You will find yourself racing to the next color change to find out what comes next!"

Materials

Yarn: Concentricby HiKoo, 100% baby alpaca, 200 g / 437 yards, one skein

Needes: US # 8(5mm) 32” circular needle

Gauge: Approx. 20 stitches and 40 rows = 4” in garter stitch, unblocked

Finished Size: 53” at widest edge, 27” deep

What is a Mystery Knit-Along?

These knit-alongs are so much fun. Each week, Michelle will release a new "clue," which is the next part of the Transient pattern. Part of the excitement of mystery knit-alongs is the anticipation of the upcoming new clue! You'll love it.

How to Participate

The KAL is FREE and no registration is required. Simply go to knitpurlhunter.com anytime after 9 am on April 5th to download the first installment of the pattern. Each week, a new portion of the pattern will be released. Michelle will answer questions daily on her website and in her Ravelry group.

Kelley will be taking part in the Transient KAL and we'll be posting pictures of her progress on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.

So get your ball of Concentric now—people are really loving this yarn! Our prior shipment sold out in all colorways within days. 

Cheers,

Kathleen Cubley
