Afghan Finished at Last !!

 This is the heaviest afghan, I think I have ever made.  This Pretty picture square was fun to make. I sort of wish now that I had done a more random layout.  It definitely should keep my grand daughter nice and warm this winter. Ha!
 I did a very simple border, this thing didn't need anything fancy. It says it's 108 degrees outside, so I took inside pictures. When it cools down some I will play catch-up and take them outside.
Pattern is here

This afghan ended up being 80 x 60 inches.  My squares were 6 1/2 x 6 1/2 inches and there were 96 of them. my border was a simple 3 rows of dc and 1 final of sc.

Now off to work on my Hexagon afghan...

Hi Barbara .. Your afghan looks fabulous - love all the colours. Thanks for visiting my blog. The yarn I used for the hat was Carnival 8ply from Big W (Australia).
