GoT super fan and designer Rachel Roden of Unraveled Designs has whipped up an amazing shawl design that uses all of those speckled minis to perfection. Paired with a solid main color, and using advanced beginner mosaic color work, this year's MKAL is great for TV knitting, but also has some more intricate spots to keep your interest peaked. The colors fade nicely from one to the next, with the main color anchoring them together. And don't be worried about those little mosaic crowns! They take just a minute to get the hang of, and are totally worth the effort!
In addition to the kit with one Ice and Fire String Quintet, one skein of Shepherd Sock in Pewter for the main color, and a download code to get the pattern from Rachel on Ravelry, you will also need a US 5 circular needle (at least 24" long) and a yarn needle. You may also want stitch markers to help keep track of the repeats!
