Yes Folks It's ANOTHER Round Ripple Afghan!

Last night, I finished a round ripple afghan for my uncle. He's a great guy and is the substitute dad and big brother in my life. He recently started talking about retiring to Florida and I decided to give him the afghan I had already started on for a house warming gift. Turns out that he may not be going there for a while but I'll be giving it to him this summer to use when and where he wants. It's more than 6' from point to point! I wanted to use up a bunch of gold yarn and white that I had in my stash. I ended up buying a couple more skeins of the gold and one of the white. The yarn I used is from Red Heart except for the black that is a Caron yarn in the 1 lb. size (a staple in my stash). I used Aggie May's pattern. She is a member at www.crochetville.org and has generously given the pattern away upon request. If you like round afghans, I have compiled a list of FREE "roundish" afghan patterns and you can go here to see it. Do you think he'll like it? I've been a little concerned with the colors but I think they look kind of "sporty" and the design is masculine. Tell me what you think. Hugs to all...


  1. I think he'll love it, how thoughtful of you. If it was black instead of white, it would be a Pittsburgh Steelers afghan LOL. Great job!

  2. Thank you! I wasn't sure about the colors but I thought they looked ok, just wasn't too sure. DH said that the colors were like the New Orleans Saints too! There are small black stripes in it too so it could be for Steelers! Take care and come again...
