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 ...
