So you may have heard about the baby afghan I have been knitting for my cousin-in-law. Well I finally finished it last night! I guess it only took me a couple of weeks to do really, but I just couldn't wait to finish it. I couldn't wait to see my cousin-in-law's face when she holds it up!
This afghan is knit in four strips sewn together, four colors, and two patterns. Every other square is seed stitch and the others a large 4x4 cable. There is an inch of seed stitch on the sides and top/bottom of the afghan which helps prevent rolling up. I'd be happy to share more specifics on how it's knit up if anyone is interested. Just PM me.
The yarn I used is Lion Brand Homespun in the following colors: Lemonade, Spring Green, Lavender Sachet, and Blue Sky. I have knit a lot of projects with Homespun and it's not really one of my favorites, but I had these colors in my stash and thought they would look great together and be nice and soft for a baby afghan. I like the way it turned out. What do you think?
