Sometimes out of boredom I start a craft project. Often it is a project that requires more way more time than the few free hours I don’t know what to do with. Such is the case with this chevron granny afghan I crocheted. I just decided I wanted to crochet an afghan one day, and 6+ months later, I had a completed throw. This project took extra time because I did not work on it consistently. Had I devoted a regular amount of time to it each week, I probably could have finished it in a third of the time (about 2 months) as the rows did go fast.
This pattern was designed to use multiple colored stripes, but I went with a simple black and mint. You make it in 4 panels, which is nice in the summer, because you don’t have to have the weight of a blanket on your lap to work on it. Also, by working the afghan in panels, each row is fairly short. This makes it easy to come to a good ending point if you don’t have a long chunk of time to work on it.
A friend of mine described this throw as a mix between modern and vintage. It is cute, warm, and just reminds me of home. So if you are looking for a cute and versatile throw look no further because the time commitment was totally worth it.
This is my favorite thing to wrap up in while watching tv. In fact, I’m snuggled in it right now!
