I used up my big ol’ Lion Brand Pound of Love Bubblegum ball of yarn. In case you were curious, here’s what that much yarn can produce, in a repeating pattern of crocheted shell stitches:
“Don’t stretch it,” I told Sean as he held up the afghan and I tried to take a photo.
“I’m not,” he said. “It wants to stretch itself.”
Here’s what it looks like when resting flat:
Right now it measures 35″ by 37″, which I think is too small to be of any use to anybody except a very small child. Since I’ve decided that this is going to be more of an adult-sized blanket, I’m going to have to add at least one more Pound of Love. I wonder how it would look if I add the new yarn as a border and work my way out, rather than adding more rows to lengthen it. I’ll keep you posted.
