Kaffe Fassett Mystery Knit-a-long

Kaffe Fassett Mystery Knit-a-long

Welcome to the Kaffe Fassett Mystery Knit-a-long using the beautiful Pure Wool Worsted yarn, made from 100% superwash wool available in 56 – yes 56 colours.

The individual patterns for the KAL are at the bottom of the page. Scroll to the week you need from 1-10.

Kaffe has designed the Afghan using a selection of these colours in four different variations; brown, pastel, red and turquoise. With these four fabulous colour ways, you can create a stunning, yet personalized piece. With the yarn’s easy care properties Kaffe’s design will form an heirloom to enjoy now and in future years.

Each stage, we’ll release instructions for one of the squares that Kaffe has designed. A completed Afghan requires each square to be knitted seven times, giving a total of 63 squares. The finished size of the afghan will be approx. 133cm wide x 171cm long (52in x 67in), the cushion finish size is 57cm x 57cm (22in x 22in) and the bolster pillow finish size will be 114cm x 57cm (45in x 22in).

Patterns will be available in English, French, German and Dutch.
