Miss May MKAL from 2022 knit using our SPLASH Gradient Set
color Ramabling Rose

Two years ago, when I knit the Miss May shawl, I used a SPLASH Gradient Kit in the color Rambling Rose.  I purchased the kit that included five, 4.0 ounce | 113 g skeins.  I knit the Miss May as a gradient, marling the yarn slightly as I came to a new skein.  I used almost all of four skeins (had one full skein unused).

If you purchase one of the SPLASH Gradient Sets using five 2.0 ounce | 56 g skeins and knit it as a gradient, that would give you 1,225 yards.  Add a 4.0 ounce skein of Walkabout in a coordinating color and you would have total yardage of 1,715 more than enough for the Twenty Four Birds MKAL.

Here are several different options for the Twenty Four Birds MKAL.

  1. SPLASH Gradient Kit - Full kit (five 4.0 ounce skeins) - $140.00
  2. SPLASH Gradient Kit - Half kit (five 2.0 ounce skeins), plus one 4.0 ounce coordinating color skein of Walkabout. - $98.00
  3. Birds of North America - Four skeins of Smitten - $120.00
  4. 4-Color Kits - 4 skeins of Smitten $120.00

Helen Stewart of Curious Handmade recently announced her new Mystery Knit-A-Long.  named the Twenty Four Birds shawl.   The MKAL uses 1600 yards.

Her mystery knitalong design this year is a tribute to William Morris and his daughter May, Edward Burne-Jones, and their fellow designers and artists, who left us such a legacy of beauty, and craftsmanship. In this mystery knitalong, we’ll let their work spark our creativity.  It is the latest project written in the curious Handmade Percentage Checklist Pattern style.  So easy to keep track of stitch counts and yardage requirements.  She has done all the work for you.

The MKAL runs for six weeks with the first clue being released on March 21, 2024.
