Updated cheat sheet chart for this week:
Clue 4 Chart

As always, if you are making one of the other colourways then Anja has Clue 4 charts for all three over on her blog.

And if you’re just catching up with the KAL, you can check out these posts for my previous clue charts:
Clue 3
Clue 2

Clue 1

There are no new colours introduced in this week’s brown colourway square, just a different arrangements of colours we’ve already used. In fact there is only one shade left we haven’t used yet, which is Damson. I was a little disappointed that it’s not featured this week as it’s so lovely and I can’t wait to use it! On the other hand, I was really pleased to see Seville used so prominently. That colour is so juicy that I almost expect it to smell of oranges!

Clue 4 Blocking

Here are all my squares from clues 1-3 so far, you can really start to get an idea of how all the different squares will look when combined together in the final cushion.

Clue 1 & 2 & 3 Squares What did you think of clue 4 for your colourway? Are you keeping up with the schedule so far?

Please share some photos, I’d love to see how your KAL is coming along!

        I was sorely tempted Sarah ad a long time fan of Kaffe’s, but decided to knit Martin’s first & see how Kaffe’s developed

    I ordered my yarn late and am still completing Clue #1. I was prompted to knit this project when I saw the colors together. I really like all 4 brown colorway combos. My concern is size. I carefully “swatched” using a #7 then a #5 needle. The #5 was spot on. Unfortunately my first square using #5 ended at 8.5 x 8.5 inches. So, I switched to a #4 needle OUCH! My hands hurt, now I’m trying to decide if I should go with the larger square and hopefully NOT run out of yarn …. but I do love the project and hope to get caught up. I can easily knit 1 square per day. ….

      Ouch, that is a small needle! I’m a very loose knitter and usually have to go down 1mm from the recommended needle size to get gauge. I’m knitting these squares on 4.5mm needles which is a US #7 (the recommended size), so that’s unusual for as loose a knitter as I am. I’m very surprised you’d need to go so small to get gauge!

      Rowan are usually quite generous with their yarn allowance so you could probably knit bigger and save your poor hands. I’ve just finished all my squares for the Martin Storey Afghan KAL and despite my squares coming out about 2cm per side larger than the pattern suggests, I’ve got 2 whole balls of yarn left over (I knitted the squares in just 2 colours and have 100g of each left).
