It's here! I'm so excited! The Traveling Afghan project is sponsored by Lion Brand Yarn and involves 49 designers from 7 different countries! The kit is available now in both knit and crochet. Each designer will contribute one 10"x10" square.
The Afghans will start the traveling in January every 2 weeks and you can follow along with your kit!
Keep track of it's progress and watch the Afghans travel on the calendar. Alexandra Tavel of Two of Wands will keep track of both Afghans and keep you updated. Visit the Landing page for more info here!
Here's how you can participate:
2. Visit this page for the itineraries of the afghans below along with the master list of all designers and links to their sites so you can follow along as they travel around the world and new patterns get released.
3. Follow the designers on social media to get updates on their pattern releases and learn about their maker journeys. There may even be some giveaways to enter!
4. Host a CAL or KAL with your local maker friends! Get together throughout the year in person or online to add your squares. We would love to see YOUR life in yarn too, so make sure to tag Lion Brand Yarn in your posts and use the hashtags #thetravelingafghans #lionbrandyarn and #mylifeinyarn and either #thetravelingknitafghan or #thetravelingcrochetafghan
Check out the maps of both kits and where they start! I am participating in the Knit Afghan and that's me, #9!
