Come on down to the Crossroads for the first Brew City Yarns Mystery Knit-A-Long! Starting on October 1st, 4 clues will be released weekly to knit the Crossroads Shawl.
The Crossroads MKAL Shawl is a richly-textured shawl knit up in two main colors and using mini-skeins as accents. The entire shawl is knit in two-color brioche, but with a twist! Never tried two-color brioche? It’s actually EASIER than one-color brioche,
because you can always tell which yarn you are working with.
This design was created so that knitters can use bright, variegated yarns that result in a shawl that is unique but tied together. You can go stash diving for the MKAL, but Brew City Yarns is also offering four kit choices: Wizards, Supernatural, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, and Moulin Rouge.
Retailing at $130.00, each kit contains 600 yds/150g of the two main colors,
400 yds/100g of coordinating mini-skeins (5-pack), plus the MKAL pattern! This is ample yarn for all sizes of the shawl. Both the main colors and mini-skeins are dyed on our Premium Draft fingering yarn with an 80% Superwash Merino 20% Nylon fiber content.

Who will be brave enough to put their name into the Goblet of Fire? August's Brewski is inspired by the wonderful wizarding world of Harry Potter and his ordeal with the Goblet of Fire.
The July Brewski, Party in the U.S.A. will be available in yarn stores soon! About 4 years ago on a June afternoon, the Supreme Court struck down the ban on same-sex marriage. At the time, we dyed a very small run of this colorway to celebrate. Dyed in a traditional rainbow, it has generous speckles at the center to represent fireworks.
Calling all wizards and witches!
