I completed the corner afghan and I am so very proud of myself. 🙂 Mainly because I started this project 7 weeks ago from an idea in my head and saw it to completion! I also proved to myself that if I work on something consistently, I can get it done in a reasonable amount of time!
This photo was taken before I weaved in all of the ends.
The finished size is 47 inches x 47 inches. Here is another photo of it just thrown over my sofa. It is just going to be a very casual lapghan to keep in the living room.
I don’t have a specific pattern written for it, but I can give basic instructions of how I created it. I started by making a square in half double crochet (hdc) in the Aquarium color (ch 21, hdc in 3rd ch from hook, ch 2, hdc in each hdc until piece is 6 inches long). Then I just hdc down 1 side with the Peacock color, worked 3 hdc in the corner, then hdc down the next side. Chain 2, and then repeated for 11 more rows. I did this for each color repeat. I think I used 3 skeins of each color, but I really didn’t keep track. I just kept going until I was happy with the size.
