Six Stripes King Size Crochet Afghan – Finally Done!
I haven’t been posting much because I took me forever to finish this afghan! I was half way there in February when it was nice and freezing. Well hooray! I can finally celebrate the end of this project.
To make this king sized afghan, I used an L hook and just chained until it was the width I wanted. I used 4 skeins of Knit Pick’s Brava worsted in each color from their neutrals sampler. I used an L hook. The stitches are all half double crochet into the back loops. I used the foundation turning stitch to get straight edges on the sides. If there is ever a next time, I might try a K hook to have just a little bit more tightness.
It’s BIG, and to get the stripes to look nice and lined up evenly on the bed, I have to straighten it because it likes to travel. I haven’t tried washing it. I’m wondering how that will turn out since the Brava lot I got was made in China and not the same as the soft. lovely swishy made in Turkey yarn I loved.
So onto baby blankets for 2 new little ones !
