The theme of the Blanket is A Voyage East. In honor of Noro Magazine’s 10th Anniversary, Deborah Newton has designed a Japanese-inspired Knit-Along Afghan using the iconic Silk Garden and Silk Garden Solo yarns.
The project is made up of 10 motif squares plus 10 solid squares.
The motif squares use intarsia and stranded knitting techniques.
Along with each instruction (1 new motif with instructions, plus finishing and final afghan), there will be a video showing a particular technique.
The KAL starts in October to coincide with the publication of issue 21 (Fall/Winter 2022).
The pattern will be free for the duration of the KAL, then change to paid. The first two blocks are also included in the print edition of issue 21 (Fall/Winter 2022).
The blanket uses the following colors and quantities:
4 skeins color 84
2 skeins color 205
2 skeins color 208
