Rowan Mystery Afghan Knit-along - 3

This is the potential layout for the Afghan in 4 colours and 8 patterns with a contrasting border.
The colours were taken from my photos of the actual wool so are a fair approximation of what the final layout may look like

Rowan Mystery Afghan Knit-along 2

Started yesterday when the first pattern was posted.  I've completed the first three squares in the first colour. This is the first one that I completed
It was only roughly blocked so it is not quite square yet.  It is knitting roughly to size, but others are having quite a few problems with this, so I think I am quite lucky that my tension seems to be working quite well.   I am finding it is just over 20cm square and slightly wider than it is long, but this can be sorted when it is properly blocked.  So far, so good.

Rowan Mystery Afghan KAL

The colour inspiration for the Rowan Mystery Afghan Knitalong came from a chocolate fish my friend gave me for Christmas.   I ordered the yarn two days ago and it arrived today from; it was beautifully packaged in net bags.

The first pattern for the kal will be issued on 21 April.  Have to be patient until then!

First pattern will be published on 17th April!
