MKAL / MCAL Ça va bien aller!

The spread of covid-19 affects everyone and we are not the exception.
As the “Ça va bien aller ” (It’s going to be Okay) movement is gaining popularity, here at Artfil, we wanted to join the movement and give our knitting friends a knitting or crochet project that will unite us and bring us happiness.
Let’s knit or crochet a shawl together with a rainbow kit!
By working together on this project, we will create a gesture of social solidarity while having fun.
The MKAL and MCAL encourage people faced with the situation with a positive approach that seeks to transmit hope in our hearts.
This project will also support the community, we will do what Gabriella Cucinelli, the initiator of the movement in Québec asked, we will donate to the Canteen for all.
More people who embark on this project, the greater the donation will be! Can we prove that we can make an impact?

Crescent shawl – Mystery pattern available both as knitting and crochet.
Crochet Design Hostess: Julie Desjardins (aka ACCROchet)
Knitting Design Hostess:  Yana Petrova

HOW TO PARTICIPATE: During the Mystery phase, until the end of May, the only way to participate is by buying the kit. This is a project with a cause!
After that, both knitting and crochet patterns will be available for purchase without the yarn.

DIFFICULTY LEVEL: Advanced Beginner
*Support groups and video tutorials are available

YARN: Klick here to purchase the kit
3 skeins of 100g. each or approx. 1080 m. of Fingering weight yarn. Subtle variegated, semi-solid or light speckling are ideal for the 2 skeins representing the sky. Those two skeins must have some contrast. The third skein is best to be gradient for the rainbow.
