Organic Cotton Baby Afghan Completed!

Blogged under Finished Projects by Tammy on Thursday 18 August 2011 at 8:46 am

My latest project is finally complete, a baby afghan using Lion Brand Organic Cotton in a color called “macadamia.” It’s about 32 inches x 32inches, and I used around 5 skeins of yarn for it and a K size hook. The edging is a solid scallop stitch, and the center is made up of shell pattern stitches. This is very thick yarn and actually surprisingly heavy, so I opted for a stitch that wouldn’t make it too heavy.

In the above photo, you can get a little better look at the center stitches. At this point, it’s been washed and blocked. I just need to trim off a few fuzzies from it, and then I can pack it off and sent it to it’s new home. I know that cotton will not be as durable as acrylic, but it is so soft and “spa” feeling. It’s just hard to compare cotton to acrylic, you know!
