Ravelry’s Tania Richter has put a new twist on the MKAL (mystery knit along) with “Yarn Quest 2017: Heroes of Yarnia”.
To celebrate the 3rd anniversary of Epic Knits, we’re bringing your a brand new MKAL in a format never before seen – a Knitting RPG! The campaign will play out over 8 weeks, and we’ll be knitting a very special mix and match scarf. What charts you knit will be determined through random numbers rolled either by dice or through a random number generator.
The way this works is that I shall act as the Dungeon Master (Game Master) for a custom game of Yarn Quest – Heroes of Yarnia. The welcome letter comes with a couple of extra documents for determining your stats and the stats of your Feline companion. Starting January 1st I will release instructions for determining what charts to knit on your scarf. These charts will be randomized by each person using a set of character stats. There are several dozen charts, so everyone’s scarf will be unique!
The campaign started last month and runs through February, but you still have time to get in on the action. Just pick up the pattern for $8.00 to get started.
