Wauw!! It looks fabulous - and you are so fast. It feels like yesterday, when you asked whether to make a border or not (it turned out great by the way).

You must feel so satisfied by looking at this fantastic and huge job you made...So well made!


What a beautiful afghan!
Have a Blessed Day,


Wow! The blanket turned out FAB! And the border is very pretty on it. Now go and get under it and stay warm! :)



oh wow, that is one stunning afghan! each picture was more beautiful than the next. amazing work, you should feel so proud.


Just beautiful - and the border finishes it off perfectly! Well done - hope you have time to curl up under its magnificence with a cuppa and a craft book to peruse.


I'm glad you bordered - its perfect!


The joining of the blocks is just perfect!!!
Love it!

Pattern? http://www.yarncrazy.com/flower-burst


Any way you would share the type of yarn? (content) And perhaps your color pattern scheme? Very Very Pretty!


How did you join the squares so no other colors show?


melodie - the yarn was an 8 ply/double knit and i used a 4mm hook. the colours just came together - there was no plan or scheme but i did want a limited palette.

jana - i sewed the squares together using the taupe coloured yarn and what i would call a lacing stitch. you are sewing the edges together so the afghan is flat on the back and front - no ridge. so you are effectively lacing the two edges together. i hope this helps and makes sense!
