It's a throw. Big enough for those days when you're feeling a little chilly but don't need a full size afghan to snuggle under.
A closer look at the edge--
For the main part, I used a solid granny square as my basis. A good pattern is found here. You can figure out your own color scheme. I used yarn that was in my stash. My goal is to primarily use stash yarns for projects this year and only buy yarn when I need it to go with what I already have. For example, I have 2 colors for my next project but need white so I'll be stopping off at Walmart today to buy some of that.
This is what I did for the edge:
- Go around the entire thing with 1 round of sc.
- 2nd round of edge:
- join yarn with sl st in corner.
- ch 3, 2 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc
- *skip 3 stitches
- 3 dc, 2 ch, 3 dc in next stitch. *
- Do rounds #3 and #4 all the way around.
- After working last set of stitches, join in top stitch of starting ch3, finish off.
I used an I hook for most of this project. Even though all yarns were labeled as "worsted weight," the brown was somewhat thinner and the project started to pucker. I ended up sizing up to a J hook just for the brown yarn.
Thanks for stopping in and visiting. You are the best!
