Crochet an Irish-Inspired Afghan
Savor a bird's-eye view of the quaint countryside patterned with plots of farmland and grazing sheep. You can continue the tradition of classic Irish motifs when you indulge in the rich textures of each new block.
Annie’s Irish Fields Gansey Crochet Afghan Club makes it easy to stitch your gansey-inspired blanket from beginning to end. From your first kit to your last, you'll be supported and guided through each and every step. And when it's over, wrap up in a luxurious throw you created all on your own. Plus, your final kit includes bonus patterns for a matching throw pillow to make with leftover yarn!
Your first month's kit includes everything you need to start stitching your afghan! You'll receive the yarn and patterns, plus 4 gifts: a set of crochet hooks, tapestry needle, stitch markers, and a digital stitch guide. Each subsequent kit contains the yarn and patterns for a new section of your afghan—12 kits in total. Your final kit guides you through adding the border and the finishing details.
From the very first stitch to the last, you’ll have exclusive access to online video instructions by Annie’s lead designer, Lena Skvagerson, to walk you through each step of your afghan. Video instructions are available for both right- and left-handed crocheters! This Confident Beginner-level afghan will help you build your crochet skills each month. By the time your afghan is complete, you’ll have mastered many new textures and techniques.
At the end of your kit series, you’ll have a super soft gansey throw perfect for adding a cozy and textured layer to your home. Join the club with a friend and share in the journey together as you create something handmade and special.
