"The summer MKAL will be a bit later than usual, beginning August 7 and running for 6 weeks. It's a little different this year, as Sharon From Security had/has a huge hand in it but I hope it will be a lot of fun!"

Details
1. Four skeins of fingering weight yarn - 370-400 yards each.
2. I suggest one neutral or "Base" Color.
3. Using two of the same color that are different shades is also great (eg. Casapinka used a peachy pink and an almost neon pink.) They still need to contrast with each other. Contrast of all the colors is important!
3. And one other contrasting shade, to make the 4 different colors.
4. You can also use 4 separate contrasting yarns.
5. Subtle speckles are probably great for all four but this has not been tested. You can use one skein of variegated and one (less than subtle) speckle.
6. If you're using a variegated, make sure it doesn't contain a lot of the same colors as the other yarns because it will blend. You want contrast! (I mentioned that, right?)
7. There are 3 needle sizes due to varying gauges - US 4, 5, 6. Most is done on a US 6. Sample gauge is 22/4" on US6 in SS after blocking.
10. There are 2 versions - Absolute Beginner shawl knitter and Advanced Beginner. With the pandemic, I don't want to think too much so I assume I'm not the only one!
11. Shape: Rectangle. It will be adjustable in length.
