Sherlock’s Great Afghan Adventure is a year long mystery read and knit-along which features a new afghan motif each month inspired by one of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle’s famous short stories. Beginning October 21, 2017 and running through September 2018 this year's adventure will have all sorts of twists and turns to delight the mystery lover and knitter in you... plus a touch of lace. Suitable for adventurous beginners to intermediate fiber warriors alike - with a whole community of friends to answer questions and cheer you on along the way.

The pattern is knit flat and will have 12 separate squares that you will seam together & then apply a border once assembled. However four bonus character squares and 16 smaller two-third squares are also included as a bonus and to give you several different options to explore. The directions for each square are written and charted. Gauge is not critical to this project - if you want to make it in a different weight yarn and needle size by all means do so - just be consistent with your gauge throughout the entire project.

Solid, semi-solid or shaded colorways as well as a wool or wool blend yarn are recommended for this project. Mine will be one color but feel free to mix it up and display your your color palette proudly. Variegated colorways are not recommended for this project, but it is your blanket so knit it in a yarn you love. Just be aware if you chose a variegated colorway your stitch work may not show up as well as it would in a solid.


tapestry needle
stitch markers (at least 2)
a cable needle
steady supply of chocolates or other inspirational treats (optional)
US 8 /5.00 mm knitting needle of your choice (circular or flat)

I include the title of the first story in the introductory pdf so you can get a jump start on reading. There is also a bonus word search for you to get your powers of deduction fired up once more.

As the MKAL progresses I'll put up pictures once each quarter has finished so as not to give away the mystery.
