The 2015 Rose City Yarn Crawl planners are delighted to announce that, as a part of the 2015 Rose City Yarn Crawl, there will once again be both a Mystery Knit Along AND a Mystery Crochet Along.

We’ve teamed up with two fabulous local designers, Debbi Stone (The Stitches of My Life Designs) and Darla J. Fanton (Designs by Darla J) to bring you two sensational shawl designs for this year’s Mystery Along. Two very different and very Portland designs.

Presales of patterns will begin on December 5th, giving you plenty of time for swatching, color choices, and requesting yarn for the holidays. Both Mystery Alongs will begin in January 2015.

December 5th: patterns for sale
Clue 1: January 28th
Clue 2: February 4th
Clue 3: February 11th
Clue 4: February 18th
March 5-8: Rose City Yarn Crawl. Wear your shawl!

Each 2015 Rose City Yarn Crawl participating shop will have their own recommended yarn(s), so make sure you hit your favorite Rose City LYS. Many shops will be hosting K/CAL nights, with the designers making appearances, so, again, make sure you connect with YOUR LYS!

It was such a blast last year, seeing the plethora of shawls in so many fantastic color combinations making their way from shop to shop during the crawl. The 2015 Crawl is sure to be just as much fun.

So, get your needles and hooks polished, clear your calendar, and get ready to join in a Rose City Yarn Crawl Mystery this January!
