Once again Julie Yeager brings you her yearly Mystery Afghan, this time she is offering 2 colourways with each colourway having an option of 4 different yarns to craft in but your colour per round selection is totally up to you meaning your work is completely unique and 1 of 1. The afghan will consist of multiple motifs with an easy join and finished off with a dark border that acts as a 'frame' to your artwork. When finished, this blanket will measure 66" long.
Choose between the different colour and yarn options by using the drop-down menu just above the 'Add To Basket' button. Firstly, there is Patina, an eclectic mix of purples and green tied together with neutral greys that create a subtle yarn pack that is still full of colour. Beachy is just what you would expect, a blend of blues, greys and whites that remind you of the crashing waves making there way over the waiting pebbles.
The above two colourways are available in the following 4 yarns, Scheepjes Stone Washed XL; a wonderfully soft cotton and acrylic yarn, which knits up nicely on 4mm needles with superb stitch definition. Available in handy 50g balls, this Aran weight yarn is best for multi-coloured afghans and blankets or Scheepjes Stone Washed; A wonderfully soft cotton and acrylic 4 ply yarn with superb stitch definition. Scheepjes Stone Washed is ideal for lovely lightweight sweaters and classic accessories. Also, there is Stylecraft Special Aran; a gorgeous yarn has been made with the art of craft in mind. Expect high quality, 100% acrylic yarn which is ideal for afghans and blankets and finally Stylecraft Special DK; Soft and easy to knit or crochet, this yarn has been made with the art of craft in mind. Expect a high-quality acrylic yarn which is constantly a favourite with knitters and crocheters alike.
