A friend of mine did a mystery pattern knit along with her knitting group. Her LYS lady gave everyone a part of the pattern each time their group met. The assignment was to complete each part before the next meeting and next part of the pattern was handed out. She did not tell them what they were knitting or even gave them a clue. When they were all done, they all had knit a really beautiful shawl.
She said it was fun and exciting. It was also a fairly easy project that most levels could participate in.
Has anyone done one of these before? I think it sounds really neat.
