Welcome to the very first week of the Curious Collective Shawl Project.

For this project you can join in to help create a new shawl design!

It is a choose-your-own-shawl adventure and you will collectively decide on various design choices through a series of polls over the next five weeks.

Now the first thing I want you to know that this is not a knit along. Not just yet anyway. I’m not even sure there is a name for it as I haven’t seen it done before, but let’s call it a “design along”.

The only design decision I have made at this point is that it will be a two colour shawl. Other than that I have no idea how the final shawl will look – everything else will be up to you!

For the next five weeks I will post a poll here every Monday with a question about the design of the shawl. Then on Friday I will check the results and announce the collective choice.

There is a pattern page for the Curious Collective Shawl on Ravelry where you can sign up to receive the pattern. Until we get to the end of the design process, this will only be a placeholder. Once you have made all the selections then I will spend a week or two finalizing the design, writing up the pattern and testing and anyone who has purchased the pattern will then have access to the full pattern when it is released.

The price of the pattern will be free until 24 May and then gradually increase to full price after the full pattern has been released. So the earlier you go in the better deal you will get!

You don’t have to purchase the pattern to play along with the polls and likewise you don’t have to vote on the polls to buy the pattern. But I think it would be more fun if you do both!

Once the pattern is released I will host a knit along for the pattern.

So for week one here is the poll. Vote away, share the Curious Collective Shawl Project with your friends, and please comment on any other thoughts you have about the design choice!
