Don’t you just love Fall weather? The leaves are changing colors almost overnight, and the days are getting shorter and the nights longer. Time to start a pot of vegetable soup and get those afghans back out and finish them up.
That’s what I did last fall when I finished this afghan for my sweet husband. It’s made from Lion Brand Shetland Chunky Tweed yarns of light blue, brown, and tan. The yarn is a blend of acrylic, wool, and vicose. It’s bulky weight, so I thought it would be fast and easy. It was very easy, but not so fast, since I decided to use single crochet and change the color every row. So after a few rows of singles, I switched and added a row of double crochet, too. The fun thing about it was that there was no thinking to it; I just needed to make sure to change the colors every row. I seem to use the afghan more than my husband, but man it is warm, and I could stay under it almost all day in the wintertime.
