What was your inspiration?
I really enjoy figuring out reversible designs and wanted to see if I could create a plaid design using this reversible technique.
What are you most proud of?
I think the way the stripes carry down into the fringe turned out really nice.
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
This is not as complicated as it looks! The reversible design for the Rustic Brown option was achieved by alternating rows of brown with tan, red, off-white and black, using a combination of sc and long hdc which are worked into the previous row. The Soft Blue option is worked similarly with medium blue, light blue, off-white, tan and dark blue. The long hdc are worked with the main color on odd rows and the contrasting colors on even rows creating the reversible effect. The main color rows are woven in at the ends, and a length of yarn is left at each end on all the contrasting color rows for the fringe. Design charts are included with the pattern.
The finished afghan size is 52" wide x 68" long; the throw is 35" wide by 38" long. Measurements do not include fringe.
The pattern is available for $4.50 and is written in U.S. terms.
