Not every letter will translate into this great design. Inspired by a Kaffe Fassett quilt, we worked an afghan in a sport-weight yarn. For a piece with larger dimensions, substitute worsted-weight.

Yarn information:
A - 800 yds
B - 1000 yds
C and D - 1100 yds each

For Simpli Worsted:
A - 850 yds
B - 1100 yds
C and D - 1150 yds each

If you choose a different letter, be aware that the rotation of colors should balance out for yarn amounts. If possible, get an extra ball of each color with the understanding that you may return the unused amounts.
