Mellow Mallow MAL Announcement

I’m super excited to be joining forces again this winter with talented yarn dyer Kitey, aka The Yarn Whisperer, to bring you a brand new seasonal make-along.

Imagine, it’s Boxing Day evening, all the main festivities are over, you are feeling nice and relaxed and are ready for a cosy evening, snuggled up warm by the fire, with a nice new crochet project, and some lovely new yarn, to work on.

So toast those marshmallows, roast some chestnuts and sip some mulled wine as we dive in together with the Mellow Mallow MAL!

If you are not sure what a MAL is, you can read more on the MAL landing page here, but Kitey and I have been working hard to bring together the best bits of a traditional Christmas along with a modern twist creating a lovely winter treat for you!

This time around we are going to be making a triangular scarf, which I’m not going to show you yet, but I will say, for this design, Kitey and I have been digging into ideas of all the cosy things – and I love how it’s turned out!

Kitey has worked his magic to put together an amazingly special colourway for this MAL and the pre-order’s for MAL kits are available The Yarn Whisperer website NOW (4 November 2021) at the cost of £37 + postage.

An exclusive pattern and kit have been created for this extra special MAL. Each kit will include:

  • 2x 100g / 400m skeins of skeins of Corriedale Sock 80/20 yarn, in an exclusive hand-dyed colourway.
  • A digital copy of the pattern (which will be sent to you 22nd – 23rd December)
  • a few extra treats, including an EXCLUSIVE @mrsgmakes stitch marker, just for good measure!

Pin this project for later:

AND if you order your kit in the first 24 hours you can enjoy a 10% Early Bird discount.

Kits will be dyed to order over the coming weeks, with generally a 1 week turn-around from order to shipping. But get in quick to ensure you get yours in plenty of time to crochet along with us!

Last International orders will be shipped by 21 November if ordered by 15 November. UK orders will continue to be shipped after this date, but ordering early ensures yours arrives in plenty of time to join us on 26 December 2021.

The MAL will start on 26 December 2021 and will run until 26 January 2022 when everyone can have a ta-dah moment and show off their scarves. We have put together a long make along period because we wanted it to be a project you can pick up when you want to and enjoy the making without feeling rushed to finish.

I’ve put together all the details for this particular MAL on a landing page which you can find to save the details here, or find via the top menu of this blog under the tab ‘CALS AND MALS’.

There will be support for the pattern as usual in my Facebook group; the KCACO-UK Crochet Community Group.

You can also pop in and join in with the Virtual Stitch-n-B*tch sessions hosted by Kitey – Wednesday evenings from 7pm, Friday’s from 5.20pm and Sunday’s from 5pm (see full details on Kitey’s Insta page). These sessions are a bit like going to a virtual knit and natter group, and everyone there is really lovely and helpful.

Make sure you are signed up to the blog (or my newsletter) and / or The Yarn Whisperer newsletter to make sure you are the first to know when the new collaboration project is revealed!

We do hope that you will join both Kitey and I for this fun make-along – we can’t wait to see your wonderful new projects come to life!

Until next time folks! Happy hooking, keep calm and crochet on my friends xx
