To ensure that everyone's Swap Octagons would go well together I had us all use Cloudborn Superwash Merino Twist in a select list of neutral colors... I just knew that with a swap our Afghans could lend up looking a wee bit disconnected if people could use any worsted weight yarn or color! I decided to knit all my squares and work the border in Jill Draper Makes Stuff Hudson in Petrified Wood. I am SUPER happy with my decision as I adore mixing this neutral hand-dye with the Cloudborn!
Unfortunately a few of our dear knitting friends have been struggling with cancer as of late, so we have decided that all monies raised from the sale of the Octagon Expansion Pack (after paypal fees and taxes) will be donated to The Leukemia and Lymphoma Society, The American Cancer Society and LiveStrong
Expansion Pack for Contexta
Note: These are only Octagon patterns, you will still need the complete Contexta pattern available in Laura’s Craftsy class Knit Texture.
