This is the info from the victory junction website about the afghans:
"Afghans - Each camper at Victory Junction takes home a hand-made afghan as a souvenir from camp.
The afghans should be knitted or crocheted with bright, cheerful colors! Our camper unit colors are blue, green, yellow and red and are great choices for afghans!
There are no specific design requirements, you can be as creative as you like!
The afghans should be 35-40 inches wide by 45-50 inches long."
No mention of any special weight yarn, but for me I think that worsted weight would be the best. The one pattern that I found uses worsted weight. It's the specific colors - blue, green, yellow and red - that had me stumped.
Rachel, the Plymouth Encore yarn looks perfect, thank you so much for the suggestion!!!
Jan, thank you also, for the suggestions - I think that the Caron Simply Soft would also be perfect!!!
