Bunch of Fives
Twelve pentominoes and their reflections.
Pentominoes are shapes made from five squares (just as dominoes are made from two squares). There are 12 of them and they can be fitted together in many interesting ways.
The afghan needs 12 different shades plus a border colour. The yarns in one half are mixed with a pale grey yarn; those in the other half are mixed with medium grey.
The original used 12 Aran weight yarns mixed with 4 ply greys. You can use other combinations.
A good stashbuster if you happen to have lots of yarn in the same weight.
Included is a colouring sheet where you can plan your colours.
