The cooler weather is an exciting time to once again bring out my yarn and crochet hooks. What could be better than making something that keeps you warm while you are working on it?
Here is my last finished piece; a chunky crocheted afghan with crossed cables. I made it a little larger than the instructions so that I can throw it over our queen sized mattress for extra warmth if we need it during these cold winter months. My niece was nabbed as the reluctant model to show off the afghan. She will probably never come to an innocent brunch of mine again. (grin)
The yarn that I used is from Red Heart and the color is “Dove grey”. By the way, If you wash the afghan on gentle and use a fabric softener, it really will soften up that inexpensive yarn.
The instructions are from this book at Joanne’s. You can use your coupon on books now, so be sure to check them out.

I would love to see your crocheted projects. Put links or pics in the “comments” so that we can share, OK? ❤
