It’s here! WE MADE IT! The last installment of the Rowan Yarns Kaffe Fassett Mystery Afghan has been revealed. No more mystery.. and it has a garter stitch trim knitted in short rows too! How cool is that. You can find instructions for the last square, trim and making up info on the Rowan website as usual. Square 9, Garter Stitch Border and Making up info are all just one click away.
In case you need help or advice when knitting the border, why not check the official thread on Rowan’s Ravelry group. Shortrows may be new to some, but fear not, they sound more complicated than they really are. I find the tutorial by Purl Bee easy to follow and understand, once you’ve got the hang of it you’ll be zooming along in no time.
I am, for the first time during this KAL, behind on my squares. In fact, I still need to do 6 more of square 8, but I did knit a quick square 9 for my mystery grid, so I now have a total of 12 squares left. Realistically, I won’t finish before Christmas as I’ve still got so much gift knitting to do, but here’s my last square in comparison to Kaffe’s anyways :)
And here are the last ever charts for this knit along, I won’t be making any notes on the trim for now as I haven’t decided whether I’m making one or not.
As usual, the brown chart is courtesy of Nottingham Knitter. Her post on square 9 will be up a little later today.
Are you keeping up? Or are you panicking over gift knitting? Who’s making the Kaffghan as a Christmas present? There’s no way I’m giving mine away.. haha! I may even make another one in different colours, that’s how much I loved making this one.
In any case, I hope everyone has been enjoying this KAL as much as I have, I am looking forward to seeing all the finished Afghans on Ravelry. Make sure to take a picture and participate in the competition (more info on Ravelry in January).
Happy Knitting and Merry Christmas everyone!
