Done... I have made this pattern probably 50 times and it is still one of my very favorites. It is a dream to do and it just looks luscious.
I used 18 skeins of Caron Simply Soft - Fisherman color 2603. I did it on #6 needles. The border is crochet - one row of sc, one row of hdc and then a row of shell stitch.
I'm starting the next afghan right after I post this entry. I'll probably post the first pictures of it sometime this weekend.

It's now about 50" long. I think I'm going to finish off the skein I'm on and do one mare. That should put it about 54" total. Then there is about a 2" border making the entire thing about 56"x54" which is a good size, I think.

We're moving right along here... 37" and 10 skeins so far.

I'd forgotten what fun this pattern is to do. And it's moving along pretty quickly. I'm right at 29" and 7 skeins.

This is 52" wide and, as you can see, 13.5" long so far. One thing about this pattern is that it does require a border all the way around it to finish it off. I'm not wild about doing borders but it's a nice look so I will. The border will fix that curl that you can see on the edge.
So far I've used 4 skeins. So it's looking like the afghan itself will take about 16-17 skeins and the border will use another couple.

This is (or will be) an afghan. It's a pattern that I've had for years and years. Just after college when all my friends got married, I must have made a zillion afghans out of this pattern. So now, when someone gets married - this is what they get. Always in an ivory color.
Today's version is made from Caron's Simply Soft - 267 stitches on a #6 needle.
