About my Mystery Lace Blanket KAL’s versions

I was asked for some clarification about my Mystery Lace Blanket KAL 2020 versions. It seems some people thought they should have to wait for the third pattern to be released to start the seamless version, so I better clarify some things.

Mystery Lace Blanket KAL 2020 – Intro and FAQ

Mystery Lace Blanket KAL 2020, ohlalana, ohlalana pattern, lace blanket KAL, free knitting pattern

Welcome to my Mystery Lace Blanket KAL for 2020!

Last year I centred my attention almost exclusively in beginner knitting. That is, only knit-and-purl projects. I shared a ton of different stitch patterns (52 Square Pickup), all the letters (Alphabet Series), numbers (Number Series) and some object here and there (like my Heart dishcloths, or Smiley dishcloth).

This year I want to make more diverse things (lace, cables, and baby clothing patterns), but I DIDN’T FORGET that many of you are novice knitters.

👉 if you’re looking for a beginner blanket MKAL for 2020, I got you covered! Visit my BEGINNER BLANKET MKAL 2020 page to learn more. 

So, let’s start talking about this lace blanket, shall we?

Welcome to my Beginner Blanket MKAL 2020!

Last year I centred my attention almost exclusively in beginner knitting. That is, only knit-and-purl projects. I shared a ton of different stitch patterns (52 Square Pickup), all the letters (Alphabet Series), numbers (Number Series) and some object here and there (like my Heart dishcloths, or Smiley dishcloth).

Although this year I want to make more diverse things (lace, cables, and baby clothing patterns) I DO NOT WANT to forget all the wonderful beginner knitters that follow my yarn adventures 🙂 So, don’t worry friends! There will be plenty of patterns to keep your needles busy in 2020 😀

LACE HEARTS knitting pattern and some news

Hello!

My LACE HEARTS knitting pattern will be the last Valentine’s day related pattern for 2020. The entire pattern is below, as well as the link to purchase a PDF copy.

It’s a 12” x 12” square (31 cm x 31 cm) after blocking and there will be more like this one in the future 🙂 Which brings me to a notice I want to give you, concerning my 2020 KALs.

I decided to make 2 blanket MKALs this year:

1) Knit and purl squares (beginner level), same amount of sts and rows as my 2019 squares (like my 52 Square Pickup KAL), featuring different objects: animals, plants, and transports. Great to add to any projects for babies and kids. Or to join into a blanket. 28 squares. At the end, it will be possible to assemble a 60” x 35” (155 x 90 cm) blanket.

2) Lace squares (intermediate level), same amount of sts and rows as today’s square. There will be 15 different patterns which you can also join into a blanket of 60” x 36” (155 x 91 cm). Alternatively, I’ll also give the option to work the entire blanket in circular needles (back and forth), knitting 4” of each pattern (no sewing at the end, squeee!)

My patrons will get PDFs of everything, of course. Plus some extra squares and hats here and there. If you want to support me on Patreon (even with $1/ month!), please click HERE. If you can’t, don’t worry! All my KAL patterns will be available for free here in my blog, just as today’s pattern.

I hope you like both ideas. Let me know what you think in the comments below (“Leave a reply” section).

2020 will be a very knitty year in Oh La Lana! 😀
