|Martin Storey KAL|
This is Martin Storey's second knit along featuring Rowan Pure Wool Superwash Worsted, and this time he has created an amazing eight color afghan.
|Martin Storey afghan in Blues Colorway|
This KAL was designed with the beginner knitter in mind, but it expands on the techniques of Martin's first KAL. In this blanket, the knitter will start to create recognizable motifs in both one and two color squares, delicate motifs in simple textures, and lace. The gorgeous designs were influenced by knitted textures and Fair Isle patterns from the Shetland and Faeroe Islands as well as Norway, Sweden, Denmark, and Iceland. For the more adventurous among us, he's even offered a further option to introduce beginner knitters to a simple bead knitting technique.
The afghan is knit in squares, so the project travels well and can be knit away from home (not always easy to do with a large project!). Eight different squares are each knit six times for a total of 48 squares. Starting January 28th, two square patterns are released each month on Ravelry with the final project close on May 26th. It's a nice project to work on through the cold winter months - and you'll be done and ready for smaller projects in time for summer!
Our KAL kits are discounted 25% off from the regular price of the Pure Wool Superwash Worsted yarn - plus get free shipping in the US and Canada!
So leave the cookies and milk behind, grab your knitting needles (and some wine and crackers!) and get ready for some grown-up Storey Time!
Happy Knitting . . . . Amy
