Helena’s Purple Striped Afghan


Sometimes a big chunky blanket is just what the doctor ordered! The texture and feel of this Sprightly Acrylic Super Bulky Yarn is very ooh la la. I originally got two skeins of it to play with, but quickly knew that I had to made Helena an afghan. The four purples were picked and I used 4 skeins of each for this afghan: Lavender, Dark Purple, Misty Purple & Lavender Heather.

I alternated rows between single and double crochet and then did the same for the dark purple border. If anyone wants the precise # of stitches and stuff, let me know in the comments here and I’ll get to counting.

Until the last week, she’s been super patient waiting for her afghan. Thankfully she allowed me to take a couple photos with it before she ran with it upstairs to put it in her bedroom.
