HAUNTED - 13 Days of Halloween Mystery Mini Skein Set - 2022
Halloween is my very favorite holiday. Monster movies, ghosts, costumes, friends.... What's not to love? Even when we can't be together, we can watch the same movies. And who doesn't want to watch more scary movies with yarn?
This mystery mini skein set includes 13 mini skeins individually packaged in numbered black satin bags. Each skein was inspired by a horror or sci-fi movie featuring spirits. Possessions, hauntings, poltergeists and friendly ghosts - movies could be comedy, cartoon, science fiction, cult classics or horror.
Each mini comes with a quote from the Haunted movie inspiration.
The pattern to be released with the sets will be a knitted wrap. It will also be a surprise. The printout will show only black and white images so as not to ruin the color surprise and will not be pictured on Ravelry or www.rebelpurl.com until November.
Finally, there will also be a little stitch keeper gift in with your mini set.
These skeins are dyed with fluorescent rainbow on a faded base. They can be used to create one item, knit up separately or crocheted individually - however you choose.
Dyed on 4 Plies of the Apocalypse, each mini skein is 20 grams of 4 ply sock yarn or about 87.2 yards. This makes the total weight of the mini set 260 grams and the length about 1133 yards total.
