Crochet Complete!

If you remember this post from 2 weeks ago, I finished my daughter's afghan! She decided she wanted the red scalloped border so that's what I did.
Pin It

The Stats
Size: 51" x 40" (perfect for us short people)
Starting Chain: 121 chains
Number of Colors Used: 9 different colors
Number of Rows: 90 (2 rows of each color before changing color)
Amount of Yarn Used: ~290 grams per color (the red I used ~390 grams since it was used for the border too)
Pattern: See my post here.
Date Started: April 24, 2013
Date Finished: May 22, 2013
Time to Complete: 1 month

Next Up
Next, I will be doing an afghan using the same pattern for daughter #3. :) I asked her what colors she wanted, and she wasn't sure. Then I saw a Vera Bradley pattern that I knew was one of her favorites so I matched the yarn to it.  She is SO excited to have her afghan done in these colors:

I am using Hobby Lobby's I Love This Yarn in these colors:
  • Black
  • Turquoise
  • Pistache
  • Limelight
  • Antique White
  • Buttercream
This afghan will take a bit more yarn per color since I am only using 6 colors instead of 9 colors like I used in the afghan above. I am excited to start this especially using a Vera Bradley bag as inspiration!

Thanks for stopping by, and I will share my progress on this one soon!

I love the multiple colors in your afghan. Nice selection of colors. Too funny. . . I was just looking at that Vera Bradley bag pattern the other day and thinking "I really like the greens."
