This project is really special! I used cotton yarn bought from a local yarn store. It is so much softer than the regular acrylic yarn, but expensive. I thought of using these colors for two different projects (as doilies) but combined then and ended up making a big one as a throw.
The pattern for this project is available on Ravelry here. The pattern is really simple and allows for manipulation of color combinations. It works up really quickly. The awesomeness about this star-shaped pattern is that the afghan grows to the needed size. It is not the traditional rectangle for a blanket but can be a really beautiful baby blanket or a throw. It allows almost all color combinations to work well. It also is great for rugs and doilies.
Yarn type: Berroco Weekend, 2 sk of white and one each of blue and rust-colored yarn.
The yarn is 25% cotton and 75% acrylic.
Hook size G (4.25 mm).
Finished dimensions: Point-to-point : 36” and Dip-to-dip: 28″.
Modifications to the pattern: I didn’t follow the pattern for the each color, as my colors are not a gradient but contrasts. I wanted see how these contrasting colors played out.
