The 2020 Rose City Yarn Crawl Mystery Alongs are right around the corner. Our theme this year is “Birds of the Pacific Northwest” and the Mystery patterns are just the ticket to help us take flight.

Pattern sales will begin on Ravelry on December 9, 2019. With your purchase, you’ll receive a pre-clue description of materials needed and a schedule of clues, as well as a yarn suggestion list from the ten shops participating in this year’s Rose City Yarn Crawl. Clue #1 will arrive in your Ravelry library by the end of Monday, January 20, 2020, with a unique new clue each week thereafter – five clues in total.

Mystery Along Schedule

Pre-sales begin – December 9, 2019
Clue 1 – January 20, 2020
Clue 2 – January 27, 2020
Clue 3 – February 3, 2020
Clue 4 – February 10, 2020
Clue 5 – February 17, 2020

After the last clues are released on February 17, you’ll have two weeks to finish up in plenty of time to wear your finished project while you crawl! Around mid-March, each design will be released in its entirety as a regular, non-mystery pattern. See our Ravelry Help page for tips on using Ravelry.

2020 Mystery Knit Along Designer – Marie Greene

Marie Greene of Olive Knits learned to knit at her grandmother’s side when she was around 11 years old and – as her family and friends can attest – she never put her needles down. And if she’s not knitting, Marie can be found writing (about something creative), speaking (about something creative) or cooking (something delicious). Truth be told, she’s always up to something.

Marie loves crunchy wool, coffee, true crime podcasts and rainy days. And as crazy as it sounds, she loves early early mornings and Mondays. Yep, she’s that person.

Olive Knits started with seamless sweaters (because that’s what Marie loves to knit), but has grown to become a space that supports knitters throughout their creative journey.
