Christmas in July - Candy Cane Afghan

This class is in progress.

Charming and cheerful, this holiday design is modern and has a twist!  Knit with our favorite Hikoo Simpliworsted and Simplicity, bold colors offer a unique palette for your holiday decor.  The blanket is knit in blocks with a very fun construction from arches and rectangles to capture the candy canes within the square.  Join the class for plenty of support as you construct your blocks and rows, enjoying the opportunity to knot together and stay on track to complete your project by the holiday season.


Blanket calls for  worsted weight yarn, preferably superwash, in 16 colors total.  We suggest HiKoo Simpliworsted or Plymouth Worsted Merino Superwash. Yarn chart for colors and amounts will be distributed in-store.  Feel free to substitute colors as you desire.
