This is the 29th square of the 30 square Knitterati Afghan. The afghan commemorates Cascade Yarns® 30th anniversary. The 30 squares will be released throughout 2017 as a mystery knit-along.

The net proceeds from Knitterati blocks 26-30 will be donated to Knots of Love, a volunteer driven organization that provides knitted and crocheted caps to warm the hearts and heads of those experiencing medical treatment related hair loss. Since Knots of Love’s inception in June 2007, over 330,000 caps have been donated to over 550 treatment centers, infusion centers, hospitals and oncology offices across the USA. All Knots of Love handmade creations are distributed free of charge to hospitals and treatment centers throughout the country -- and most importantly at no cost to the patient receiving the caps.

Cascade Yarns® will distribute the net proceeds that it receives (monies received less the fees charged by Ravelry) for purchases of Block 26 through Block 30 to Knots of Love. We encourage you to also make your donation directly to Knots of Love:

For Cascade Yarns® 30th anniversary I decided to pay tribute to the Cascade mountains for whom the company was named. Inspired by the color choices I created the misty background, then embroidered the essence of the Cascade mountain range in duplicate stitch. I finally adorned it with a single strong applique pine.
