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.
These two squares make their statements with texture, rather than color. The first square features three different motives: textured hearts, using alternating knit and purl, a hugs and kisses cable in the shape of X’s and O’s, and the intricate "heart strings” cable. The second square has columns of alternating seed stitch and twist stitch. A contrasting ornamentation is added in duplicate stitch. Linda’s been using Cascade Yarn’s Cascade Yarn’s 220 Superwash Sport, which yields 9” squares for a lighter weight, baby-sized project. She uses needles two sizes smaller than the worsted weight instructions call for.
