Shiftalong Bundles by Drea Renee Knits with Spincycle Yarns
The Shiftalong was originally created out of a ‘knit-along’ by Drea Renee Knits and has been a popular hat design since! It was knitted in Spincycle Yarns in their Dyed in the Wool blend.
Andrea’s Original – 1 skein of Melancholia & 1 skein of Stay Out of the Forest

In 2018 I hosted a fun KAL challenge over the 4 day holiday weekend with my basic brioche hat Harlow. For 2019 I thought it would be fun to host another challenge with a new technique to learn – Mosaic knitting! This is one of my favorite ways to play with combining colors, and is a simple technique for even newer knitters to try out! If you can slip sts, knit and purl – then you can do Mosaic knitting! – Andrea Mowry
