This Mystery CAL project is a full size feminine afghan designed especially for the lady in your life. It is worked and assembled in sections with very little seaming. Instructions for each section will be published in increments over a period of eight weeks. Take this time to assemble all of the materials you will need, and spread the word to your crochet friends so that they can participate in the fun.

Your initial download will be a placeholder for the MCAL which includes all of the information you will need to begin. Each new clue will be published as an update to the pattern.

Clues will be released as follows:
07/05/2015 – Clue #1
07/12/2015 – Clue #2
07/19/2015 – Clue #3
07/26/2015 – Clue #4
08/02/2015 – Clue #5
08/09/2015 – Clue #6
08/16/2015 – Clue #7
08/23/2015 – Clue #8
08/31/2015 – MCAL concludes

The MCAL officially concludes on 08/31/2015 and the pattern will no longer be made available in the Clue format; rather it will be revised to a single file.

My original design uses 5 colors of worsted weight yarn, but you can use 4 or 3 colors for your afghan, or even assorted stash. Just consult the chart below for yardage. I used more feminine colors; however, some of the testers used color palettes such as green/neutrals/browns/blues with beautiful results.

Andante Scarf Mystery CAL

Time for another Mystery CAL. Come along with Ruth Greenwald of PennyRose Yarns and myself as we take you on a Symphony of crochet designs and yarn. 

This will be an ongoing club, but each design will have a separate sign-up. So you get to choose if and when you wish to join. Last day to order is Wed, Aug 14.

Included in this month's kit are the following:

The Andante scarf pattern, emailed to you. 

1 skein of Yarn: This month's yarn is Lyric Yarn, 400 yards of a 100% SW merino singles yarn in a fingering weight.. The 5 colors are Asparagus, Pewter, 
Watermelon, Chocolate Milk,  and Dusk.. Lyric is a very easy yarn to crochet. Even though it looks curly, it will not kink as you work with it. It's very soft, drapes well, and is not itchy at all. Truly a lovely yarn!

Cost of the kit is $27 plus shipping. To order please see: PennyRose Yarns Etsy Shop.

To give you a little preview, here's one piece of the puzzle. :)
