Gradient Lapghan

Thanks to everyone who is bringing cans of food into the store for the Food Drive. Please keep them coming.

Cascade had so much fun with last year’s 30th Anniversary Afghan that they have created an all-new design for 2018. The folks at Cascade know that if anything motivates a knitter more than a knit-along, it’s a mystery knit-along! This Mystery Knit-Along is sure to be as exciting as it was last year. Knitters all over were sitting at their computers, eagerly waiting for the next pattern to land in their inbox. Once the pattern arrived the knitting frenzy began as inquisitive knitters couldn’t wait to see how the block would knit up. 
The Knitterati Knit-Along starts in March, 2018 and a new pattern will be released every three weeks for a year. There will be sixteen squares in all, created by sixteen top designers.
The Knitterati Knit-Along follows a gradient theme to correspond with a special gradient section that Vogue is featuring this Spring. There are sixteen colours of 220 Superwash Merino in this afghan — four graduating shades of four different colours.There are two magnificent colour choices using the new shades available in 220 Superwash Merino for the Knitterai Knit-Along, and kits will be available in the store very soon.
Should you be thinking of subtle shades for your afghan, let us suggest the original colour option. Soft lilac that flows through tranquil grays and blues and in to warm shades of green. Perfection!
Looking for something a little more bold? Why not try out the alternate colour option? Rich aubergine that coordinates exquisitely with shades of gold, blue and green. 
Please note that in order for you to participate in the Knitterati Knit-Along and to receive pattern releases for each square, you must sign up at
Cascade 220 Superwash Merino will be arriving later this month. Our first order will include all the colours shown for the Lapghan (both colour options) as well as cream, white, three greys and black. We will continue to add colours.
220 Superwash Merino is similar in gauge and yardage to our classic 220 Superwash but with the softness of merino. Use this total easy care yarn for adult and child garments and accessories that need that extra touch of softness.

Join me for the fun. Making a square every three weeks doesn't seem like a lot. They're little and easy to carry around with you. What a great way to learn some new techniques.

Here is a link to the KAL that is just finishing. The squares look great. And they have some big time designers. You still have time to download the squares. If you hurry. They are only good until February 15th. Sign up on Cascades website for the download codes.
