The knitters at Abundant Yarn Online, Linda Lynn and Hannah Cuviello, are going to use this space to share what’s on our needles (and hooks). Linda has started on the Great American Kid’s Afghan, one of the Great American Afghan series by Knitter’s Magazine, featuring Cascade Yarns.
The two squares with pocket motifs give a child something to play with, and use red, yellow and orange, the warm colors. Both squares are knitted in garter or stockinette stitch. The large pocket square has knitted shapes to tuck inside. Designer Kristin Nicholas suggests making six of these squares with a variety of closures and attaching them together in a cube shape. What a great idea! The other square, from designer Lucy Neatby, features flaps trimmed in I-cord, that open to reveal hidden treasures. See the dinosaur button and the dump truck button? What’s under the other flap?
