It's not quite a mystery knit along, it's not quite a pattern. But it IS all fun and games!

Roll the die (included) to determine what to do next on your shawl! Each number is associated with a different stitch pattern. You do whatever the die tells you to, and you end up with a surprise shawl! Everyone's shawl will be similar, but no two will be alike! This is one game you can't lose!

This year's inspiration is Edward Gorey, who described his genre as “literary nonsense”. His love of cats, ballet and the somewhat macabre is truly unique. You may be familiar with his art even if you don’t know his name. He illustrated the book Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats, by T. S. Eliot. That book was the basis for the musical Cats. The intro to PBS’ Masterpiece Mystery! Theater from 1980—2006 featured animation by Edward Gorey. Watch the intro on YouTube here.

This kit contains the pattern booklet and die only. Choose 3 coordinating skeins of fingering weight yarn for the project.
