Afghans are among my favorite knitting projects. They make memorable and cherished gifts for weddings and graduations. And what fun it is to create a handmade blanket for the new baby! My husband asked me last week when I'm going to knit a a blanket for him...guess what he's getting next Christmas!
There are many, many patterns available for afghans. One of our favorite books at The Stitchin' Den is Done by Monday.
The patterns in this book are knit with double stranded worsted yarn on Size 13 needles. The book suggests the ever popular Encore worsted. This is a great pattern book when you need a fast, but impressive project!
Michelle Hunter was inspired to write Building Blocks and Building in Color because she heard, "I want to be a better knitter" so often. Each book is a carefully designed sequence of patterns, with supporting videos, to help any knitter improve her (or his) skills.
Have you heard of the Knitterati Afghan? This pattern, designed for Cascade 220 Superwash Yarn, has 30 squares,
created by 30 different designers, to commemorate Cascade Yarns 30th anniversary. The 30 squares will be released throughout 2017 as part of a mystery knit-along. This is the first square. You can read more about this project on the Cascade Yarns website. The Stitchin' Den has many beautiful colors of this yarn and will soon have the colors called for in the patterns.
We've got dozens of patterns to choose from, from cozy cable knit throws to precious designs for baby's first blanket.
