The Appalachian Afghan

I'm knitting another (few) school afghans and I realized that I never posted about this one - you can read about Robert's NC State Afghan here

All I did was substitute gold for the red and cream for the white on the original afghan. I'm a little over half way done with this one - the last cream square on the left will be embroidered with the App logo and I'll go ahead and do that before I knit any more - that way I'll have an open side to work from instead of all the bulk of the rest of the afghan between me and that square.


  1. That's a lot of work. I'm assuming it's hand knitted. I wouldn't even attempt a blanket that size unless I was making the squares on my Bond machine.

  2. Thnaks Nicola,

    It is hand knit - it only takes about 1 hour to knit a block on size ten needles - There will be 35 squares (7X5) - the embroidery for the logo takes quite a bit longer though - for the next one I'm thinking about knitting it in instead - we'll see how that turns out - I sort of like the bold look of the duplicate stitch for the logo...

  3. so, who is that afghan for? are you making two just alike?? love, k

  4. Hey K,

    Yep - I'm making two just alike - I thought about using the same colors but a different pattern - but I like this pattern - I may not do the embroidery next time - I think I may knit the logo into the square - we'll see,



    PS - this one is for Richard.
