Bernat Blanket Stripes

As you know I love Bernat Blanket yarn. Sarah at RepeatCrafterMe posted an afghan pattern using the blanket stripes. I loved the stitch and how the changes in colors looked like steps.  You can find the free pattern here.

I mentally have a hard time making afghans. They take time to start and then you work on it and don’t seem to see progress.  Then, all of a sudden, the end is in sight! This past week I finally saw the end of this afghan and was very motivated to finish it.  The pattern uses an I hook which is a little small for the thickness of the yarn.  I had to work on it slowly because of that as my wrist got sore.  I ended up using 5 cakes of By The Sea stripes. I had some left over to make the tassels on it.

I loved the color combinations and did enjoy making it. Now to get my other WIP’s finished.
