Words cannot explain the excitement that I have for my newest crochet pattern, the Embrace All Afghan! You can find the kit available at Lion Brand Yarn. This is a free pattern and a low-cost ad-free pdf is available in my Shop and Ravelry.
The Embrace All Afghan was inspired by Lion Brand’s newest collection, Skein Tones.
“Skein Tones offers a modern neutral palette aiming to complement a wide spectrum of skin tones. The collection of colors is part of the Basic Stitch® Anti-Pilling family, a very versatile 100% acrylic CYC4. Makers who gravitate towards creating garments that will integrate into their wardrobes often turn to neutral colors, and many who choose colorwork projects need a neutral to balance the bolder hues. By having a 12-color palette of nuanced neutral options you no longer have to settle for an “almost” complement to your color selections.” – Lion Brand Yarn
I’ve designed this afghan to include all 12 shades and to showcase how brilliant each color is. I loved working with Basic Stitch Anti-Pilling Yarn. The kit is available at Lion Brand Yarn!
