Yarn Kit – Geogradient: Westknits MKAL 2023
Just as certain as the seasons are changing Stephen thrills us with the promise of an über-exciting mystery. Well established as the highlight of the year for many a knitter, with this the 14th installation of Westknits Mystery Knit-a-long Stephen welcomes you to join in on the Geogradient explosion of colour!
As always, since this project is a mystery, we've only been given a few details of what is to come, but we know it is a shawl, we know it is worked in a gradient colour combo and we know it involves geometrics. Yes, here at Knit With Attitude we are intrigued, and ready to cast on!
How does it work?
When buying the pattern, you will be signed up for the MKAL and receive the initial information about the project. Cast On is Thursday October the 5th, when you will receive the first clue to work through. The project is then followed with a new clue every week throughout October. Stephen will hold you by the hand and guide you through the mesmerising stitches of the Geogradient with video tutorials throughout. We'll be knitting the Geogradient together!
Clue 1 - Thursday, October 5th
Clue 2 - Thursday, October 12th
Clue 3 - Thursday, October 19th
Clue 4 - Thursday, October 26th
The Geogradient Shawl is made using 4x 100g 4ply weight yarns in a gradient of four colours, following Stephen's guidelines we've picked our favourite hand dyed yarns in combinations especially curated for you and this project.

The Geogradient Yarn Kit contains all the yarn you need to make your very own shawl, and it can be bought with or without the pattern. In addition you'll need circular needles size 3.5mm / US4 in 100cm / 40” length, a spare circular needle the same size or smaller for holding sts OR waste yarn, 4 stitch markers, and a darning needle for weaving in your ends.
