The Hue Shift Afghan blends eleven colors of Brava Sport 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.

Loved this pattern - won a blue ribbon at the Kansas State Fair! Came out so pretty - glad I wove in the ends as I knitted, made it much easier. Thanks for a great pattern.

I bought the Rainbow one and really enjoy knitting the afghan. Colours work perfectly with one another and I like the fact that 2 colours are used in each square. This makes it easy to pick up stiches as for each stripe 1 stich is picked up plus the extra one in between the 2 squares. I am close to finishing the first quarter of the afghan. I have read a few reviews about the fact that the kit does not have enough yarn to finish the project. In order to prevent finding out that I won't have enough yarn by the end of the project (which might perhaps only be in a few years time) I weigh the yarn ball after having used it to knit a few squares on a digital kitchen scale and this way work out whether I will have enough to finish the afghan. I can't wait to see the results of this lovely project.

LOVE this pattern. I've made it twice now, once in Jewel and once in Rainbow; both are gorgeous. I think this will be my go-to pattern when I need a knitted gift.

I have to come to Dublin's rescue. I like the color. I noticed that when it was used a stripe with other colors, Dublin's colors appeared to change. I thought it was delightful! We got four different greens from one ball of Dublin, just by pairing it with another color. I bet that was on purpose.

Bought the original rainbow one. Juat finish it. The instruction can be confusing at some part, but the drawing did help a lot. They should have add some additional information such as don't cute the yarn if it continue onto the next square, etc. Some complaint that they didn't have enough, but I did end up with quite a few extra yarn at the end. I think it's because I didn't cut the yarn that repeat itself onto the next square. Also, when doind the border, count 25 stiches for each square and put a marker will help go on faster with the pick up. The other complaint I have would be when I pick up stiches and make a new square I end up with a big hole at thr bottom corner, couldn't find any instruction or information to avoid that, but it was kind of resolve when come the time to pick the stiches for the border. Beside those little details, the afghan was very easy to work out, colors are great. Would definitely order more.
