We pulled out this popular color pallet as an inspiration. The colors feature the best of both the beach and the desert sand and with Mary Maxim being THE source for vintage knit and crochet patterns., we figured it was a good fit. With a pop of color and its rich neutrals, Mary Maxim yarns will also add wonderful texture and color to your projects.

See how we matched Mary Maxim’s worsted weight yarn to create the texture and flecking for this beautiful project. Purchase the Denim Afghan pattern here then choose your colors. We chose our very popular Mary Maxim Starlette. It’s a worsted weight yarn that comes in a large variety of colors. Next, we chose the Mary Maxim Woodlands yarn that adds to the texture of our afghan. Then, we chose the Mary Maxim Alpaca Tweed to give our Afghan a very natural look to its fibers and finally Mary Maxim’s Aran Irish Tweed to give a nice contrast to the alpaca fibers.

How would you rejuvenate our throwback pattern of the week?

I was introduced to the fiber arts like many crafters by my great-grandmother. She was determined that if I ever needed to repair some socks or make myself a sweater then I would know how. Little did she know that it has led to a rather large yarn hoarding addiction and fascination with needles. As a life long crafter I am always learning new techniques and improving my skills.
