Hue Shift Afghan
Now in both Worsted and Sport weight versions!
The Hue Shift Afghan blends eleven colors harmoniously in this unique and crafty mitered afghan. Knit in four larger pieces and then seamed together, each of the four sections begins at the corner and mitered squares are picked up and knit directly onto the existing work. By combining this clever construction with simple garter stitch knitting, you are able to create a modern and visually stunning motif with minimal effort! Although each mitered square is worked in the same way, they each begin slightly differently depending on where in the pattern they are located. The first square cast on becomes one of the four corners of the afghan where four more squares are picked up and knit one after another. Each following row of squares is picked up and knit onto the previous row until each section is complete. Made with simple garter stitch mitered squares and finished off with a darker border, the Hue Shift Afghan is a deceptively simple pattern that explores color in a new and creative way!
Notions: yarn needle, and locking ring stitch markers.
