I had been searching for an afghan pattern that takes advantage of Kureyon’s long color runs. This block pattern is based on Barbara G. Walker’s Short-Row Stripes square in her Learn to Knit Afghan book. The original idea was to knit a square occasionally as I came across new colors of Kureyon, finishing the afghan in time to send it to college with my daughter, who is also a knitter and who loves Kureyon. Unable to stop once I began, she instead received it for her 15th birthday.

Version 1 – Multicolored squares:
Noro Kureyon 100% wool; 109yd/100m per 50g skein; color: various, 1 skein/square (for 24 squares, I used 21 skeins, making up 3 squares with leftovers)
Yarn for seaming (I used navy Cascade 220 [100% merino wool; 220yd per 100g skein] - Kureyon tends to come apart when used for seaming)

Version 2 – Knit in one piece:
Noro Kureyon 100%wool;109yd/100m per 50g skein; color: #157, 20 skeins

Both versions - less than one skein of Cascade 220 for crocheted shell edging.

French translation available here.
