2016 Mystery Along Call for Designers

2015's Mystery Knit Along Pattern, the Washington Park Shawl by Debbi StoneWith plans well underway for next year’s event we are officially soliciting designers to submit proposals. As in past years, we are looking for designs that will be fun and interesting to work over a series of four clues. Our working theme for 2016 is “Oregon Grows Great Things”, encompassing everything from native plants to rain clouds to food crops. To change things up a bit, this year we will consider design proposals for cowls in addition to shawlettes.

Proposals are due by July 31. Our group will review the proposals and make selections in early August, giving each designer two full months to create the designs. Click here for all the details.
