Juego Mystery KAL: Starts April 12th

It's time for another Mystery KAL, who wants to "JUEGO" with me?
(FYI- Juego (huay-go) means game or play in Spanish....)

Schedule:
Clue #1- April 12th
Clue #2- April 19th
Clue #3- May 3rd
Clue #4- May 10th
Clue #5- May 24th
How it works:  Sign up by purchasing the pattern prior to April 12th for a discounted price of $6.00  (You can sign up later and receive the previous clues, but I think it's more fun if you start it right from the get-go!)  After April 12th the KAL will be $7.00 

When you sign up you will be sent a pdf with a materials list and gauge to be ready to cast on.
The pattern uses two colors of light fingering yarn, one variegated and one solid, 490 yards each, with optional beads (40 grams, size 8 glass seed bead).  You will receive more information about yarn and optional bead choices when you sign up, or you can go read here.  Beads are easily omitted if working with beads isn't for you!

On each scheduled clue release date an updated pdf will be sent to you with the next clue.  There will be videos made just for the KAL to help you, and an active thread in my Ravelry group so that you have lots of support and FUN while you are knitting. 

Exciting News!  Last MKAL, many of you asked for kits!  So guess what? I teamed up with SpaceCadetCreations, and we made some just for you!  I used Celeste in my version of Juego with a lovely Matsuno rainbow topaz bead.  Stephanie and I came up with 3 different colorways for the kits with optional coordinating beads... you can see them here (and in the photo above!).

So, Sign UP! Sign up for the KAL on Ravelry or my website  and then get on over to my Ravelry group and start chatting about your yarn (and bead) choices!

Note
This is a brand-new never released design and it is sure to teach you TONS!  Video tutorials will be included along the way... I had such fun incorporating new techniques into this design, I hope you like it as much as I do!

Have Questions?
Ask them below... I'll answer in the comments so everyone can benefit from the answer.... if you have questions, I'll bet someone else is wondering the same thing too!

    1. I will call it advanced beginner to intermediate... it's definitely less challenging if you choose to not work with beads!

    2. With that yardage (2 colors, 490 yards each!!!) - it's got to be a shawl or wrap or something big.
