Words from members

  • "I loved the final result"

    "Thanks a lot for such a wonderful design. I really enjoyed the knitting process and I loved the final result."

    Sandra, Sweden

  • "I would get quite excited when I knew the next patterns were due!"

    “This is the first time I have taken part in a mystery KAL and I thoroughly enjoyed it. I would get quite excited when I knew the next patterns were due! I particularly enjoyed the chevron stitch pattern but also had a lot of fun with the bobbins dangling as I used the intarsia technique. The video technique explanations were very helpful.”

    Jane, Scotland

  • "The designs, colours, wool and beads were all great"

    "I loved knitting my Mystery Cushion (even the sewing up!) and the designs, colours, wool and beads were all great! Thank you! I ended up buying three sets of buttons before deciding on some covered with Thai fabric which matches the theme and the cushion perfectly!"

    Lucille, UK

  • "I love the colour mixes"

    “I thoroughly enjoyed this five-month project (my first from you) and am looking forward to next year’s club. I’d not done intarsia or beading before, so this was new to me. It adds so much colour and brightness to the dark winter evenings and I love the colour mixes which I would never have been brave enough to put together myself.”

What are the Mystery Knitting Clubs about?

The Mystery Knitting Clubs are unique projects that are split across a number of months. Both the blankets and cushions are constructed from individually knitted squares that are assembled together to create a finished block.

The mystery is that you won’t be told the theme of the project, so part of the fun is to discover this while you are knitting it up! The Mystery Blanket and Mystery Cushion designs will not be published or re-produced in other form, so you will be part of a very special one-off project.

How many months will each club run for?

The Mystery Blanket Club begins on 1st February and runs for 10 months. The knitting kit is sent in two parcels: February and May.

The Mystery Cushion Club begins on 14th June and runs for 5 months. The knitting kit is sent in one parcel at the beginning of the project.

The Mystery Baby Blanket Club begins on 1st October and runs for 7 months. The knitting kit is sent in one parcel at the beginning of the project.

Patterns for the Mystery Blanket and Mystery Baby Blanket are sent monthly by email on the 1st of the month, and the Mystery Cushion patterns are sent on the 15th of the month. There is also an option to have printed paperwork which is posted to members each month and for which there is an extra cost.

How do I subscribe to a Mystery Knitting Club?

Membership is strictly on a first-come-first-served basis and there are a limited number of places in the club. So once applications for the Club are open it is best to sign up as quickly as possible to avoid disappointment.

When applications are open you can purchase your membership in Debbie’s online shop and make your payment using a debit or credit card or Paypal. Then all you need to do is sit back and wait for your first package to arrive.

Can I pay in instalments?

Yes! You can pay for any of the Mystery Clubs in your choice of 2-4 instalments using our payment platform, Splitit.

Just select to pay in monthly instalments during the checkout.

Do I get a discount for being a Mystery Blanket Club member?

If you are a member of the current Mystery Blanket or Mystery Baby Blanket Club, you are entitled to a 5% discount off the price of the 2024 Mystery Cushion Club.

Members will be given a unique code for this which will need to be added to the coupon box at checkout.

Please note that there is no discount for the Mystery Blanket Club membership for being a Mystery Cushion Club or a Mystery Baby Blanket member.

How will the parcels be sent to me?

Parcels are sent to UK members by Royal Mail. Overseas parcels are sent by International Tracked Delivery.

There is an option for UK customers to have Special Delivery (guaranteed next day delivery), for which there is an extra cost.

Tracked Delivery is mandatory for all overseas customers and is included in the price of the membership.

What will be included in my materials parcel?

Your parcel(s) will include enough yarn and embellishments to knit up the whole blanket or cushion. If you have any left over, it is very important that you keep it safe because you will need it for other squares later on in the project.

Can I purchase the patterns separately without a knitting kit?

Yes, you can by choosing the Download Patterns option (if available) when placing your order. This will enable you to use yarn and beads from your own stash to knit the project.

The list of yarns and beads for the first part of the kit will not be released until a couple of weeks before the project begins.

Can you give me any clues as to what the theme is going to be?

It is important that the theme of the clubs are kept a 'mystery' until you guess it yourself! However, in my promotional material for each Club I give an indication of the colour palette and a list of the yarns used in the project.

But what if I am a novice knitter? Can I still join the club and successfully complete the project?

There are two options given for the Mystery Blanket and everyone is sent the pattern instructions for both options.

Most of the squares are the same for both options, but when there is a choice it is clearly stated.

Option one includes textured stitches like cables and knit and purl stitch patterns, intarsia colour work, fairisle colour work, stripes and some beading.

Option two includes all of the above, but any fairisle and intarsia squares are replaced by either stripes, beaded or textured designs.

There is only one option for the Mystery Cushion with no alternative squares to knit.
There are two options for the Mystery Baby Blanket Club offering a choice of two colourways, either Grey/Silver or Rose/Candy.

What if I get stuck and need some advice?

Debbie writes a monthly blog on her website for each of her Mystery clubs, where you can get lots of helpful tips about the project. And each month she includes video demos of several different techniques to help you with your squares.

You could also join the Debbie Abrahams Mystery Blanket group on Ravelry and Facebook who are always very helpful and willing to give advice on all aspects of all the Mystery clubs. If you have a query that you cannot find an answer to then you can contact Sue at sue@debbieabrahams.com and she will be able to help you.

Do I receive any other benefits from being in one of Debbie’s Mystery Clubs?

Each month there is a prize draw which all Mystery Blanket Club members are entered into, with each winner receiving a gift from the range of kits, buttons, beads and books on Debbie’s website. Each winner is notified shortly after the draw has taken place.
