Mint Afghan

November 17, 2003

Finished.  And I love it.  I used 12.5 skeins - color sage 2611.  The pattern is Classic Diamonds out of one of my books.  I used 224 stitches (repeats of 24 +8).  Finished product is 44"x55". 

Note to self:  Next time, a good stitch count would be 272 (11 diamonds across).

It's now about 40" long by about 45" wide.  Once again, I wish I had made it wider... when will I learn?!  But, this a really nice pattern and I'm sure I'll make it again... wider.  As it is, I think I can add about another 15 inches or maybe a bit more without it looking too out of proportion.

This is turning out to be a nice afghan to knit and a nice looking one, too.  The pattern has just enough complexity to keep me interested but isn't so complicated that I can't watch TV or do other stuff while I knit it.

This is a pattern from one of my books.

It is for a thicker yarn and bigger needles so I just added repeats of the diamond pattern.  I hope I added enough. 

Size 6 needles - Caron Simply Soft yarn.
