Anno 1926 is a new memorial blanket pattern, designed by Iman van der Kraan. The pattern is foreseen as a CAL which will start on September 2nd and will be released in 15 languages. As the pattern is challenging, it is recommended that you join the CAL at the beginning which will help you to divide the work into smaller, less complicated parts.
