2009: The Year of the Afghan (March)

I can't believe I forgot to post about this last week (although if you read our newsletter, you already know about this).

The March Square is ready and available. As previously stated, while we will be using yarn from our shop to make each square, the patterns will be written for any worsted weight yarn that gets approximately 4.5 stitches/inch on a US 8. So feel free to substitute anything you have in your stash! At the end of the year you will have twelve squares (more, if you do some of them twice) and while the squares will be interesting enough to keep even advanced knitters interested, it would also be a good project for the new or intermediate knitter who is interested in learning some new skills throughout the year. Please keep in mind that depending on how you knit, your square may come out to be a different size. The size given on the pattern is just an estimation - tight knitters will get a smaller square, and loose knitters will get a larger square. It doesn't mean that you're doing the pattern wrong if you come out with a bigger or smaller square; all this means is that we all knit differently!


Here is the Ravelry pattern page for the March square! You can download the pattern for free off our website, or we have hard copies available in the shop. Enjoy!
