The afghan commemorates Cascade Yarns® 30th anniversary. The 30 squares will be released throughout 2017 as part of the mystery knit-along.

Cascade Yarns® will be making a donation to different fiber-related charities equal to the amount that it receives from Ravelry for the sale of these patterns.

Proceeds from Blocks 6-10 will be donated to Halos of Hope, a non-profit dedicated to providing comfort to those who have lost their hair due to cancer treatments such as chemotherapy or radiation. Providing a soft knitted, crocheted, sewn, or woven handmade hat lends dignity and warmth to an otherwise life-altering moment. Halos of Hope collects hats from creatively, crafty volunteers across the country and donates them to over 400 cancer centers, oncology offices, and hospitals most in need. More information is available on their website at
