In a year where we all feel more apart than ever, it feels really nice to be participating something called Traveling Afghans. A group of 49 knit and crochet designers, led by the wonderful Two of Wands, worked together to design a pair of patchwork afghans. Throughout 2020, each afghan has been on a journey from designer to designer. This week I’ve played host to the Traveling Knit Afghan as I added my square (Square 20) to the mix. Read on for all about Traveling Afghans, find the pattern, and also catch a tutorial on how to work Triangle Rib Stitch, which is featured in my square!
