Moorish Mosaic Afghan

Comprised of three stunning motifs, the colorwork in this afghan mimics the look of Moorish tiles. The main motif is a hexagon that morphs into an octagon, all of which are held together by smaller squares and triangles. In superwash wool, it doesn’t just look pretty, it feels pretty and is easy to care for.
