Follow Your Arrow 2

The second mystery knitalong from Ysolda, with a choose your own adventure style twist.


    Just like the first Follow Your Arrow there are five clues, and every clue will come with two options either of which builds perfectly from whichever you choose previously. The result is 32 possible combinations – a really mysterious adventure.

    You will receive files for all the clues separately. Although the knitalong is now over no photos are included within the pattern in case you’d like to maintain the mystery aspect. However, if you do want to peek many, many photos of gorgeous finished shawls can be found on Ravelry.

    The pattern will be written out or charted depending on what makes most sense for that segment of the design. Some stitch pattern directions will only be given in a charted format.


    Stitch markers in a couple of different colours or designs.


  • Fingering / 4-ply yarn
    Up to 550yds / 500m yarn in one or more colours.

    A roundup of our yarn choices can be found on the blog.

    In addition, it has been designed to work equally well in a single colour, using different colours for different clues or with a small amount of contrast colour detail.

    Suggestions rather than set directions are given for using different colours so having plenty of each colour you want to incorporate on hand will give you the most options.
