Pure Wool Worsted Mystery Afghan KAL
Join the Rowan Pure Wool Worsted Mystery Afghan KAL, designed by Martin Storey!
First clue and KAL start: Thursday, April 17, 2014.
Most clue releases: Mondays
Third clue: Tuesday, May 6
Each week for the first eight weeks, we’ll release a pattern for one of the squares that Martin has designed. A completed Afghan requires each square to be knitted six times, giving a total of 48 squares.
If you choose to use Martin’s recommended shades you will knit each design three times in one shade and three in another.
In week nine, Martin will show us how to create the trim. In week ten we’ll provide the final instructions needed for making-up the blanket, to complete a truly beautiful Afghan.
There will be a month given to finish the project after the making up instructions are released. Watch out for a competition at the end of the Knit-a-long too!
The finished squares are 20cm x 20cm. The overall layout is 6 squares by 8 squares (48 in total) = approx 120cm x 160cm plus trim.
Beginner knitter? Not a problem, there are online videos to support the pattern, along with basic techniques like casting on. You can also choose to make a smaller blanket.
Share your progress - you’ll be able to ask for help and advice, share your comments, and photos via the Rowan Yarns Group stickied thread, on this Ravelry pattern page, and also on our Rowan Yarns Facebook page.
