Welcome to the the Mystery Knit Afghan 2019!

If you haven’t joined in this amazing MKAL experience, this is the year! We are combining two of our favourite stitches this year to create another unique and spectacular Afghan. The theme for 2019 is Cables and Lace. A seamless knit afghan with multiple sections of cables and lace that is knit throughout the year. Each section bringing a new challenge and excitement! It will be difficult to put down. Honestly, we have found this is the best way to start and finish a full size afghan! Since we have started the MKAL’s, we have actually completed the afghans! Plus, no boredom of knitting the same stitch over and over again.

This year, we have introduced one more size. You can choose from three different size afghans to knit:

Standard Size Afghan: 48” x 60” (122 cm x 153 cm )
Bonus Size: 60” x 72” (153 cm x 183 cm), or
Lap Blanket Size: 36” x 45” (91 cm x 114 cm)

Upon purchase, you will receive the information file to get all of your supplies ready for the official launch of the first clue on January 15th! This Afghan will have 7 clues throughout the year:
