Mystery Dishcloth KAL

What is a KAL?

A KAL, or Knit-a-Long, is a virtual event where many people all knit the same pattern throughout a specified time. This KAL is a Mystery Dishcloth, meaning you will knit a dishcloth but will not know what it looks like until the end.

How does it work?

Each Monday, every single week, I will host a new Mystery Dishcloth Knit-a-Long. On Friday, before it starts, you’ll receive an email with the details you need to know — yarn, needle size, and a hint about the pattern and color to use.

Each morning that week, Monday through Friday, you’ll receive an email with a portion of the dishcloth pattern — usually around 11 rows of the pattern each day for the 5 days. When you finish on Friday, you’ll have a completed dishcloth.

Every week?

Yes!

The Mystery Dishcloth Knit-a-Long has turned out to be wildly popular and so I’m offering it every week for a small subscription fee.

I offer three different Tiers:

  • Free — 1 KAL per month
  • Plus — 2 KALs per month
  • VIP — every week

The schedule below outlines what you can expect if you sign up for one of the different plans that I offer.

Special Announcement:
While we Shelter-at-Home

For the month of May (and possibly longer) I will host TWO FREE Mystery Dishcloth Knit-a-Longs per month. This is the same as if you paid for the Plus Tier, but I am offering it for free for now.

I know we are all feeling the stress of the COVID-19 pandemic and I would like to help provide something to take our minds off of it.

What does this mean for signing up?

If you signed up anywhere else for the KAL (a landing page, through a link on Facebook, or in an email) you do not need to do anything.

If you are not yet signed up, choose the Forever Free option below.

What if I’m absolutely positive that I will want to continue with the Plus Tier when the pandemic is over?

You can sign up now for the Plus Tier or wait until the end of May. I’ve added in a free trial to allow for the month of May, but that free trial will not be a regular thing after the pandemic. If we are still sheltering-at-home for the month of June, I will extend the free trial period for everyone who signed up for the Plus Tier during the pandemic.

Forever Free!

Subscription Questions

Can I join at any time, or do I have to wait for the beginning of the month?

Join at any time in the month.

For Free members, you’ll be added into the list and at the beginning of the next month, you’ll start receiving the KAL emails.

For Plus members, you’ll be added into the list, and you’ll start receiving KAL emails for either Week 1 or Week 3, whichever one comes soonest.

For VIP members, you’ll be added into the list, and you’ll start receiving KAL emails for the very next KAL.

Check our calendar so you know which week we currently are on.


How will I be charged?

When you purchase one of the paid subscription options, Plus or VIP, each month on the same day you signed up, you’ll be charged the price for that tier. The subscription is an automatic recurring charge that will go to whatever payment method you chose at checkout.

Please note that while PayPal does allow for recurring subscriptions, I have fewer options using them, such as being able to adjust your billing date if you need that, extending the free trial, or allowing you to upgrade or downgrade tiers. The regular checkout with a credit or debit card allows for much more flexibility.


Can I cancel?

Yes, cancel at any time. Your subscription will continue to be active through the end of your billing period and then will not renew.


I don’t live in the U.S. What is the pricing in my local currency?

I wish I could switch the listings to multiple currencies. Unfortunately, because I am a very small business and due to limitations with my payment processors, I must continue to process payments in U.S. dollars, and the currency conversions will happen through the payment processors (PayPal and Stripe).

Here is a currency converter so you can have an idea of the current exchange rates. There may be exchange fees charged by your credit card, bank, or PayPal.


Which Tier should I pick?

If you’ve never done a Knit-a-Long before, join the free one and try it out.

If you like my patterns and know about Knit-a-Longs but don’t want to commit to every week, join the Plus Tier.

If you are an avid knitter and are CRAZY about my patterns, then the VIP level is for you!


Will it always be a dishcloth pattern? Will it always be knit?

Yes, that’s what I design. I haven’t branched out from that, but maybe someday. And yes, always a knitting pattern.


What type of designs will the dishcloths be?

Most of the patterns used for the Knit-a-Longs will be picture dishcloths. If you look at my shop, you’ll get an idea of the type of picture cloths that I design.

I have recently started designing some patterns that are not pictures, but more utilitarian. They might be a little lacy with some yarn-overs. Or they might use a repeating stitch pattern to create a design. As I design these types of cloths, I plan to use them as one of the new patterns in the VIP tier. You may not get one like this every month.


I just joined, can I get in on this week’s KAL?

Depending upon when you join, you might start getting emails in the middle of a KAL. Don’t worry, all the daily emails have links to the previous days so you can get caught up.


What if I already own the pattern you picked? Can I get a different one?

I’m sorry but I cannot keep track of all the patterns individual customers own. Part of the fun of a Mystery Knit-a-Long is the mystery. If you own a lot of my patterns, there may be a chance you end up with a repeat.

If you are more interested in making sure to get brand new patterns each month, I will suggest to sign up for the VIP level, where I will release two brand new patterns each month as part of that Tier.


I missed this month’s Free KAL, can I still get the pattern?

No, I’m sorry. Once we are past the Free KAL, I do not offer access to those patterns. However, they are still available for purchase in my shop.
