I have made two Soft Waves Twin Afghans. This past Sunday my son Russ and his wife Rachel had a birthday party for their three children. Aden turned 7 Sunday, Evalynn turns 1 on Wednesday and Colby will be 6 on the 18th of July. Instead of back to back birthday parties they decided to have one big one for all three!
For each one of these afghans I used 5 7 oz cakes of Hobby Lobby's Yarn Bee Sugar Wheel. I don't know why but one came out smaller than the other, a full 2.5 inches shorter. One is 67" and the other is 69.5". The top blanket is in the Blueberry Pie colorway and the bottom one is the Minted Macaroon colorway. Each cake has 5 different coordinated colors.
I still have two more to make and then all of my grandchildren will have a twin sized blanket from Grammie. Our little Dylan will be 7 in December. I already have the yarn for his, Parisian Macaroon. It has light blue, navy, teal (his favorite) and a limey green. I won't be making Dylan's for a little bit. I just don't have it in me to make three in row!!!
I made the Lunar Crossing Square Blanket for Evalynn. This pattern is from Kim Guzman of Crochet Kim. For this blanket I used 2 cakes of Hobby Lobby's Sugarwheel. This time in the Raspberry Tango Colorway. I found this pattern easy to follow and very well written.
You can find this yummy yarn at Hobby Lobby's Official Site, search for Yarn Bee Sugarwheel under the Yarn and Needle Art Department. You can find the pattern for the Soft Waves Twin Afghan here <.....>
