This is the "small" afghan I started when we were teaching crochet. The pattern comes from a Michael's project sheet for a scarf. The scarf strips are 5 inches wide. Initially I was going to do a lapghan but I have a throw that is a nice comfy size (54 x 45) and I have decided to go with that although with the joins between the strips it may be somewhat larger, we'll have to see where it comes out. Now, I don't know if its my age or what, but these bright colors have become very attractive to me, I'm not sure that I would have looked twice at these color yarns several years ago.
Leftover from my wool eater blanket are the Red Heart yarns shocking pink, lavender and pumpkin, I did purchase the turqua to add more (?) contrast. Do you think I needed it?? ... any way, I'm loving the colors and the joining done in the shocking pink.
I love the texture and warmth of this pattern and it is very easy to do. Great for sitting in front of the tv and crocheting away! Here I am using a size G Hook. Its about 1/3 of the way done. I will try using a larger hook for the next one.
Wishing you happiness and blessings all the day.
