It’s time for our Fall Mystery Knit-A-Long!!!!

Why Navigatrix?
I've been traveling a TON this year, and Navigatrix is indicative of that! Navigatrix incorporates garter stitch with other stitch patterns from around the world... I'll help you navigate your way through this super fun design! The way this MKAL is designed makes it great for travel... so if you are on the go this fall it will be the perfect companion!

OH! And did you hear? Everyone who signs up for Navigatrix can get Transitus Hat FOR FREE! We are going to have a pre-MKAL KAL in my Ravelry group and Facebook page to keep our needles busy until Navigatrix starts on October 5th.

What is Navigatrix?
* Navigatrix can be a shawl or a cowl... you'll make that final decision in Clue #4.
* You'll get to make decisions about size in Clue #4 too, just have the yardage called for on hand.
* You can knit Navigatrix with or without beads, that is totally up to you.
* What I do know is that knitting Navigatrix is sure to teach you TONS, our Ravelry forum is superb, so if you are willing to ask questions, someone will be there to support you! We have a "no knitter left behind  policy"... and you are included!
* Wondering more about what a Mystery KAL is and how I run them? I wrote a FAQ you can read here.
