Fan Afghan Begins

Blogged under crochet and knitting,Projects in Progress by Tammy on Saturday 7 June 2014 at 2:02 pm

I’m starting another baby afghan. This one has a designated home for sure. My niece is expecting, and she likes bright colors, specifically yellow, turquoise, green, and orange. I had about 3 skeins of Vanna’s Choice Baby yarn in the Sweet Pea colorway in my baby yarn stash, and I ordered some additional Knit Picks Brava yarn in Canary. Because Knit Picks tends to be a little thinner than most yarns, I went with bulky for this, and it’s working.

See here I started adding the yellow yarn, super bright and cheerful! I found the stitch, called Fan Stitch, in a stitch dictionary, and I plan to make 10 rows of each color. I’m using a size J hook, and I started with about 120 chain stitches. The stitch is very addicting, and so I hope to whip this afghan out really fast.
