Peacock Plumes Afghan CAL: September-November 2022

Welcome to the Peacock Plumes Afghan Crochet Along!

Join Cascade Yarns and Melinda Miller this fall for a wildly wonderful crochet along!

Melinda designed the Peacock Plumes Afghan using Cascade Yarns' Anthem - an affordable, 100% acrylic yarn - but the pattern also works with Cascade 220 Superwash for a wool option!

With weekly installments and step-by-step instructions, this stunning blanket is accessible for crocheters of any skill level. We will also have tutorials here to help with trickier stitches if you run into any trouble!  

Supplies

In addition to your yarn, you will need a crochet hook and a tapestry needle.

We have kits in the suggested colors of Anthem, Pacific Sport and 220 Superwash. Shade cards are below for reference. If these colors aren't quite your style, we have additional colors of 220 Superwash in stock and ready for you to create the perfect colorway of your own!
