Austin's Afghan



I started this Afghan January 18 and finished it January 25.......I made the pattern myself and I really like it.......I used 5 bundles of yarn and a size 10 1/2 hook, the color of the yarn is called 960-blues (m).......As you can tell from the pictures my son really loves it.......I have post the pattern at the end.......it works really fast I did it every night from 6 to 9 PM and then waiting in the car for the kids to get out of school for about an hour (30 minutes each kids) and it only too me a week so I know that you will love it........

Austin's Afghan is BEAUTIFUL. I would love to have a copy of your pattern. I have two grandchildren that would LOVE their very own "blankie" that nanna made for them. And, this one looks so easy, and a lot of fun. The fact that it's fast is DEFINITELY a plus for me. I seem to have too many irons in the fire all the time any more. My husband says "some day things are going to slow down."....lol....right.
