A Christmas Present for my Hunny Bunny :) This afghan took me from July of last year to almost Christmas to complete. It is worked in a revised reversible stitch pattern which, is the equivalent of making two identical afghans and quilting every single stitch together to create one heavy blanket. However, it is only worked as one piece.
The skeins of yarn it took to complete: 32
Red Heart Heather 12- 5 oz. skeins
Red Heart Black 10- 7 oz. skeins
Red Heart Burgany 10- 7 oz. skeins
180 rows by 281 stitches times 2!
The number of stitches involved: 101,160
It weighs approximately 15 lbs and is half an inch thick!
How’s that.. to beat the frigid and brutal temps of a Minnesota winter???!!!
It even fits perfectly in the washer when set in length-side down!
