Sherlock's Great Afghan Adventure is a year long mystery read and knit-along which features a new afghan motif each month inspired by a one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's famous short stories. Beginning March 15, 2014 there will be all sorts of twists and turns to delight the mystery lover and knitter in you. Suitable for adventurous beginners to intermediate fiber warriors alike - with a whole community of friends to answer questions and cheer you on along the way. The pattern is knit flat and will have 12 separate squares that you will seam together then apply a border once assembled. The directions for each square are written and charted. Gauge is not critical to this project - if you want to make it in a different weight yarn and needle size by all means do so - just be consistent with your gauge throughout the entire project. Solid, semi-solid or shaded colorways are recommended for this project. Mine will be one color but feel free to mix it up - several of the squares would look great in two colors. Variegated colorways are not recommended for this project, but it is your blanket so knit it in a yarn you love. Just be aware if you chose a variegated colorway your stitch work may not show up as well as it would in a solid. Here is a clue for you mystery hounds who may want to get a jump start reading our first story: We begin at the beginning. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY This pattern is for knitters from the adventurous beginner to the intermediate fiber warrior. If you can knit and purl and aren't afraid of cables and twisted stitches you are good to go!

My fiber adventures began several years ago when my friend and neighbor Mrs. Shelton taught me how to crochet. Of course I could not handle the teeny-tiny hook and thread she worked, but her enthusiasm was infectious so I persisted and could feel something special beginning to take root. This love affair with the hook soon led me to the needles and a serious love of knitting - especially socks, they rule my world!
