Today I can finally reveal the afghan that I've been working on:
This really is the biggest project I've ever made and I have to say I am in love with it!
This weekend I spent an afternoon snuggled under the blanket crocheting next to my husband. It was bliss <3
I've done lace weight shawls that have taken longer to finish that this, but the size and weight of this afghan means it is much bigger than anything I've done before.
I wanted to make it big enough to completely cover a double bed but I didn't have quite enough yarn and it came in a bit short:
It's a real mismatch of squares of different sizes. Some I made up myself, some I found in books and some I found online.
I used 100% acrylic aran weight yarn in 3 different colours. I joined the squares with a mixture of reverse single crochet and slip stitches and added a border with the left over white yarn.
As I was getting close to finishing it, I couldn't wait to finally weave in all the ends and pop it in the washing machine! When it came out all soft and smelling of fabric softener I loved it even more :)
This is my first afghan but I will definitely be making more in the future!
Don't forget to stop by my giveaway. There are still two more weeks to go before I draw the winner :)
Have a wonderful day!
