Viola is an extremely clever design that is sure to be your very own knitted masterpiece! A combination of smaller squares come together in a unique way to create an image that can only be revealed once every piece is in place. At first glance, Viola is a seemingly simple afghan that is knit out of small, garter stitch squares. Once you look closer, you will see four different types of garter squares: plain, bias, mitered, and concentric. Each of the 206 squares has its own unique coloring, which comes together at the end to reveal a vibrant and stunning flowering image. The pattern helps keep you organized with 18 charts, each of which contains 8-12 squares and includes instructions for backing your afghan. By combining the simplicity of garter stitch with unusual and intriguing construction, the Viola Afghan exemplifies the notion that the whole is greater than the sum of its parts.

Notions: yarn needle, stitch markers, and string tags or paper and pins for marking squares (optional).

Finished Measurements: 48" x 68"

First of all, I realy love the yarn, how it feels, how it knits up, all of that! But, and there's always a but, unless you really like to knit lots and lots of little squares - I'm afraid to count them, 12 each on 15 large blocks and 6 each on three large blocks - then this might not be the afghan for you! The colors are amazing, rich and luscious. But - there it is again- I'm not liking all the joining and likely wouldn't do it again. I'm making this for my daughter and she will love it, she just gets to skip all the little squares. However, she made me an exquisite Dresden plate queen sized quilt so I guess turn around is fair play!
