Hello, crochet friends! Here is a fun, wedding-themed project for this week! This afghan is a project I created for a cousin who is getting married in a few short weeks. I tried to pick colors that would be fun and bright, and would brighten up a happy new home.

For my yarn, I selected Mint and White skeins of Red Heart Super Saver. I used a total of 8 skeins: 6 Mint, 2 White.

This afghan is a bit on the large side (for the ultimate cuddling blanket). It measures approximately: 58.5 by 66.5 inches -or- 148.6 by 166.4 cm (including the border). You can make this slightly smaller, but are limited to a minimum of 100 stitches across in order to fit the chart. You can, however, make it as large as you want, as all you’d need to do was add a larger border around the chart. Resizing it will make more sense in a bit, I promise.

What you’ll need:

Yarn: 6 skeins  or 2,184 yds/1,998 m  of yarn in Color 1.

          2 skeins, or  728 yds/666 m of yarn in Color 2. 

Hook: J, 6 mm

Additional materials: Scissors, and yarn/tapestry needle

Afghan set-up notes: Complete 34 rows of HDC in color 1. You will then use your chart to complete rows 35 through 135. You will need to crochet 40 stitches on either side of the chart to center your chart design (this will be explained in more detail below).  Once you complete the chart, crochet 34 rows of HDC in color 1. The border is crocheted using HDC in color 2, and measures appx. 2 inches/ 5 cm in width, which has been added to the afghan’s total measurement.

Crochet addict, bibliophile, and cooking enthusiast. If I'm not sleeping, I'm probably making something while reading (because why do one thing at a time, when you can do two?)

Drawing, painting, and coloring are some of my favorite things to do, so I own a ridiculous amount of art supplies & coloring books. I also enjoy making soap, and even owned a soap shop in Albuquerque for a few years.

Other than that, I've owned a few businesses and have moved cross-country a few times. I play the flute and piccolo, and love to study languages in my free time. I'm fluent in English, Spanish and French, and I speak a little German, Italian, Mandarin, Japanese, Russian, and Korean. I'm a writer, though you wouldn't know it by the quality of my bio, but I write fiction and fantasy stories. My first novel will be completed soon, and I have a second one in the works.

Someday, I will travel the world with the person I love. We will see and experience all the magic the world has to offer together, and it will be amazing.
