Triple Wave Afghan

Information and registration for the Sit & Knit is here.

The Triple Wave Afghan

I think it was size 13 needles. I know it was made with Lion Brand Wool-Ease Thick & Quick. I was afraid to drop it on a child - it's so heavy! It will certainly keep someone warm and it's large enough to go on a bed and will certainly keep someone cozy while watching the t and v.

The "recipe" came from The Little Box of Knitted Throws.

It requires about 11 skeins of yarn, though you will need to buy 12 to make it. They don't give you a warning of how cumbersome and heavy the afghan will become so let me warn you: it's gonna get cumbersome and heavy. It is worth every minute of the nine days it took to make it - maybe I should call this one the nine day afghan.

This particular afghan will be on sale at the May 3rd Pancake Breakfast, Bake Sale and Bazaar at First United Methodist of Oak Park.

What a gorgeous and snug looking blanket! I can only imagine how heavy that is as I made one of my sons a HUGE granny square afghan.

He is 6' 3" and wanted it to cover from the top of his head to beyond his toes! It ways a ton, and I didn't use heavy yarns!

Great job, and thanks for the link to my pattern for hats. Much appreciated.
