Join Kaffe Fassett's new Afghan Knit-Along ...
Featuring Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted!
The design team at Rowan has once again teamed up with globally celebrated designer Kaffe Fassett to craft the perfect Knit-Along. This season, Kaffe has created an amazing colorwork afghan! The last Kaffe Fassett Knit Along was amazingly popular and this KAL will be no different. As always, we're delighted to help you find all the info you need to knit this project and participate in the KAL!
Kaffe started the KAL on Thursday, March 30th, 2017 ... but you can join in anytime!
Kaffe Fassett Afghan KAL
by Kaffe Fassett
Inspired by bold geometric tile designs, Kaffe's afghan design achieves his iconic look without any complicated colorwork. If you are an intermediate knitter, you will enjoy this project while building colorwork skills!
The afghan has a total of 48 squares knit from 13 unique patterns, plus a border and will be made using intarsia colorwork techniques. The layout of the squares flows around Kaffe's instantly recognizable tumbling block design. Each square is then placed to achieve the maximum geometric impact.
Did we talk about Kaffe's colorways? ... they are simply amazing! For this KAL, he has crafted only one simple yet effective colorway that captures his distinctive Kaffe signature. But choices are good! We have over 50 colors of Rowan's Pure Wool Worsted ... so if you would like to substitute colors, we have all the project details in the "Materials" section below ...

Celebrating 25 Years of Mountain Color Yarns ...
Revisit a favorite project or discover a design you missed!
For the last 25 years, the creative team at Mountain Colors Yarn has brought us beautiful fiber in colors inspired by the Rocky Mountain West! Diana and Leslie each have a unique color sense. By combining their individual aesthetics they are continually introducing amazing new colorways that sparks creativity in both knitters and crocheters.
We are proud to have supported Mountain Colors in our LYS since we opened in Galena, Illinois in May of 2004. Watching them add to their color and yarn lines has been a continual source of inspiration for many of Amy's designs.
Creating new colors are another way we've enjoyed working with Mountain Colors over the years. To date we offer 15 FiberWild custom colors in 10 yarns, most of which have patterns Amy specifically designed to show off their gorgeous hues! Below is a sampling of Amy's "best of" designs worked in Mountain Colors yarns. We hope you will revisit a favorite project or discover a design or color you missed!
Happy 25th Anniversary
