If you’re a fan of our popular Tree of Life Afghans (including the original Nicky Epstein creation, a baby sized one, and a crochet version), check out this beautiful new afghan from our friends at Interweave Knits. It is in their current issue (now on newsstands) and is called the “Yggdrasil Afghan.”

Made in Nature’s Choice Organic Cotton in the gorgeous and earthy Pecan color, this lovely spring-appropriate afghan is a wonderful heirloom design by Lisa Jacobs. This is definitely an afghan that will be treasured.

    I love, love, love that afghan and have it in my queue on Ravelry and here on Lion Brand. I hope to make this for my inlaws this year as a Christmas gift.

    This one is super pretty. One of my college roommates is getting married this fall and I’m hoping to make an afghan as a present, this one is on my list of possibilities, along with the tree of life afghan. Decisions, decisions.

    Unfortunately this much of this yarn would cost a fortune and is not machine washable or dry Able!!
