Pre-clues are on sale now, the Clues officially start on January 25 and run through mid February.
First Clue on January 25th!
Don’t you just love a good mystery? Then you should purchase the Rose City Yarn Crawl “Mystery Alongs”! When you do, you will immediately receive the Pre-Clue for either the Mystery Knit Along – or the Mystery Crochet Along. This Pre-clue provides general information about the project, recommended yarn, needles, hooks, etc.
We would love to help you pick out your perfect yarn combination from the large selection of yarns we recommend! We have lots of color choices in Madelinetosh Twist Light or Black Trillium Sock for the Mystery Knit Along. And loads of colorways of Manos del Uruguay Fino or Madelinetosh Light for the Mystery Crochet Along. Yowza! Something for every taste and style.
The Mystery Alongs (MAL) begin in earnest when the first of four weekly Clues is issued on January 25th. Each week you will receive another Clue via your Ravelry account, with all the info you need to make the next section of the knit or crochet pattern. The final clue wraps things up 2 weeks before the 2017 Rose City Yarn Crawl begins, with plenty of time to weave in those ends and do some blocking – yeah!
One of the highlights of our Rose City Yarn Crawl is seeing everyone showing off their completed Mystery Along projects. Yowza! It’s always inspirational and amazing how creative you all are in your yarn choices and embellishments – no two are ever alike. Each year we have more of you participating in this fun Pre-Crawl activity, so during the Crawl we literally swamp the Greater Portland area with MAL-wearing mobs of Crazed Crafters. Don’t you want to join in this Fiber Phenomenon?!
The Yarn Crawl always occurs during First Friday in Multnomah Village, the charming, “turn of the Century” area where Northwest Wools is located. Each year the Business Owners in Multnomah Village look forward to seeing Fiber Fanatics from all over the Country visit “our Village”. They love seeing all the many interpretations of the Mystery Alongs you are wearing and marvel that “no two are ever alike”! To show their appreciation of your visit to Multnomah Village, many offer discounts and special deals to Yarn Crawl participants. How cool is that? It truly “takes a Village” to properly support the RCYC.
Pre-clues for the 2017 Mystery Knit and Crochet Alongs with celebrated designers Casapinka and Julie Blagojevich can be purchased on Ravelry now.
