Home > FIBER > Mariposa Tee KAL with Fickle Knitter & Zen Garden

Come join Michelle Miller of Fickleknitter.com and Roxanne Yeun of Zenyarngarden.com as they bring you a semi-mystery KAL to begin in mid-March, 2013. Unlike our other mystery KALs, this KAL will be a semi-mystery. We are pleased to show you the tee design but the pattern details will not be released until we begin the KAL. The bonus of hosting our KAL this way? You get to see the tee beforehand and when you are knitting along with your fellow knitters, you get the resource of other knitters standing by to help you along with any questions you might have. Of course, Michelle and Roxanne will always be available to help you along during the KAL too!

Mariposa is a seamless short-sleeved yoke sweater, knit in the round from the bottom up with 2 simple lace panels on either side of the waist shaping.

Included in this KAL is the following:

(1) Mariposa Tee Pattern by Michelle Miller
(2) Serenity Worsted (enough to complete your size - please choose your requirements based on bust size)

YARN DETAILS - SERENITY WORSTED (per skein)
80% superwash merino/10% cashmere/10% nylon
175 yds/100 g | hand/machine wash | air dry

Serenity Worsted is regularly priced at $32 but for this KAL, we are offering a discount on the yarns for the volume purchases!

We have included extra yarn for your bust sizes to ensure that you will have enough yardage to complete your pattern and also to allow for an extra surprise pattern toward the end of the KAL. Michelle has graciously agreed to offer a bonus pattern to all our KALers to help use up any extra yarn you may have at the end of the KAL. We are also ensuring that you have enough yardage in your dyelot so you can knit from one skein to the next.

The Mariposa Tee has two options - high neckline and a scoop neckline - you will get to choose what you want to knit and the yardage estimates have included enough yarn for both options. Please choose your colourway from the dropdown menu. We have 3 tees knit up to show you colourways Bronze Age, Delphinium and Blue Hawaii. Bronze Age shows the lower scooped neckline option and Blue Hawaii & Delphinium show the higher neckline option.

BUST SIZES:
32"-34": 3 skeins
36"-46": 4 skeins
48"-50": 5 skeins

(please make sure to measure your bust around the fullest part of your bustline to ensure you have the proper size for your tee)

Needles:  24" US 8/5 mm circular knitting needle
Gauge:  16 stitches & 24 rnds over 4" (stockinette)

Won't you come join us? This tee will be making its debut at the TNNA fashion show in Long Beach, California at the end of January and don't forget, as KALers, you will also be able to take advantage of special yarn savings during the KAL!
