Here is the Before and after pictures of the afghan. It was crocheted, now it is knitted and just one panel of new yarn. It is said that you will need one third less yarn if you knit an item instead of crocheting it. I say it depends on your gauge and the stitch that you use.
As I am looking at the picture I realized that the new afghan took a new life and the yarn looks very nice. It was like reborn. It shed a lot because of the blend of materials.
Thanks for stopping by.
