Last year at Stitches West, I met Yolanda Soto Lopez through a mutual friend. We bonded over our love of crafting and yarn, and have been friends ever since! She lives in California and I live in Florida, but we don't let that stop us! We video chat to stay in touch :)
We thought it would be fun to collaborate and design an afghan together. I am going to design 3 squares and Yolanda is going to design 3 squares. Every week, one of us will be launching a YouTube video teaching you how to make one of the squares, and you will be able to download the instructions in a corresponding blog post.
On the final week, I will show you how to seamlessly join the squares together to create the afghan! Doesn't that sound fun? I hope you join us.
Here is our schedule:
Week 1: February 26, 2016 Kristin will show you how to make the first square.
Week 2: March 4, 2016: Yolanda will show you how to make the second square.
Week 3: March 11, 2016: Kristin will show you how to make the third square.
Week 4: March 18, 2016: Yolanda will show you how to make the fourth square.
Week 5: March 25, 2016: Kristin will show you how to make the fifth square.
Week 6: April 1, 2016: Yolanda will show you how to make the sixth square.
Week 7: April 8, 2016: Kristin will show you how to join all the squares.
The theme is springtime and here is the beautiful, cheerful color palette we chose:
