Well I think it is about time for a new featured pattern. I have been toying with the idea of making an afghan for years, and I found something that appeals to my aesthetic.
This is actually written as a baby blanket but will be very easy to upsize, and there are plenty of projects on Ravelry with notes for me to peruse. I have actually just bought the yarn that I am planning on using. I wanted an acrylic that is easy to care for, and not scratchy. I found an awesome deal on some Caron Simply Soft, so that is what I have gone for, plus, I just found a 20% code for the website, so, even better deal.
Here are the colours that I have plumped for, I actually added a lighter heathery grey as well, just in case. I think that these colours, paired with the simple, geometric pattern will give it a nice contemporary look, like in the Ravelry page.
Any advice for afghan knitting?!
