The Mystery Quilt 2021 consists of ten 12×12 squares using slip stitches and mosaic techniques with ten alternating seed stitch squares for a quilt of interesting textures and designs. Each month one slip stitch or mosaic square and one seed stitch square are completed.
The Quilt is constructed in panels. Once completed, the panels are joined with a clever method using a crochet hook. Finally, borders are added to give a finished look.
Techniques include: basic knitting and purling, chart reading, and slip stitch/mosaic knitting. The rest is a mystery, one square a month revealed.
The monthly virtual Zoom class is offered 10a-12pm on the last Thursday or Sunday of the month, Starting January 28/31 2021-November 2021. Select one time, though flexibility between the two is possible as your schedule needs arise.
Class Fee: $120 for the knit-along. This fee covers all 11 classes.
