Completed Project: Colorwaves Afghan

I actually finished this last week, but just haven't had the time to post about. All in all, about 2 months to complete. Would have been faster if I could carry it on my commute.


Colorwaves Blanket 01

Colorwaves Blanket 04

Pattern: My own - just double crochet back and forth; border is one round of single crochet, 1 round of treble crochet and 1 round of single crochet

Hook size: I (5.5 mm)

Yarn: approximately 12 skeins of Lion Brand Colorwaves in Caribbean

Size: 59" by 46" (approximately)
Unless I'm using a pattern, I don't really plan on how big the blanket will be. I just chain away until it feels big enough and then start the blanket. This one seems like a great size for a nap on the couch.

Modifications: The only modifications are that I need to wash and block it (the size is approximate because it's a bit wonky in shape right now) and I need to figure out who is getting this for Christmas. :)
