This afghan was made to give to a friend as a birthday gift. One of my favorite afghans I have made.
Very striking colors. The black really makes the already bright colors really pop. I like it a lot. Is it crochet?
Thank you, Mark! It is crochet.
It's beautiful. A rainbow is just what you need on a miserable winter's day.
Thank you so much!
I love this!!! I'm a big fan of color!!!! Inspires me to use a little rainbow in some of my works. Great work too by the way. I should knit an afghan like this......
Thank you! I had been working with dark, somewhat monotone, colors so this was a breath of fresh air. I've had many requests for this afghan.
Brilliant, beautiful work! Wow! Really well put together. Looks like a LOT of yarn changes. How did you do this? Did you knit it or crochet it? Really beautiful work. The colors are so perfect. Congratulations!
Thank you so much, Tom! I crocheted this afghan using Lucy's Neat Ripple Pattern at http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html. I changed the color every two rows so there are a total of 55 stripes (110 rows) plus one round of making the afghan square and then two rounds of half double crochet. I quickly learned on other afghans to weave in the ends as you go along.
That is a gorgeous bit of crochet. I really like the soft ripple effect as I've not seen it before. I may have to keep it in mind for a future project. I hope your friend enjoys it very much.
Books, knitting, cats, fountain pens...Life is Good.
Thank you, Joe! You can find the pattern at http://attic24.typepad.com/weblog/neat-ripple-pattern.html. There are several ripple patterns out there but I like this one the best.
Love the colors. A lot of gray days around here lately. Looking at your afghan would add sunlight to anyone's day!!
Beautiful piece of work and so colourful.
Beautiful work! I love the colors
