Hello! I'm new to crocheting & stupidly started an afghan without really knowing how big it will be or how many yards of yarn I'll need. I'll give my specifics & if you could PLEASE help me out, I'd greatly appreciate it!
Ripple Crochet, all double crochet, "I" hook, Red Heart Super Saver (744 yds) 14 oz/396g, #4 medium weight, 146 chain width, @ 52" X 70" finished (guessing), 16 stitches in 4 inches wide & @ 5 stitches in 4" tall. From the numbers I'm looking at I'll have 108 rows & about a gillion hours of crocheting. HAHAHA!
I was hoping to do it all in one color for which I bought 2 of the big skeins of, but in case of emergency I also bought 2 skeins of Red Heart 5 oz/141g #4 medium weight variegated.
The pattern is pretty basic: 7 dc, *3 dc, 6 dc, dc3tog* - - - I've got 9 peaks.
The goal is to donate this to a silent auction for the nursing home I work for for their Alzheimer's association group.
Can someone please help me by telling me about how much yarn I actually need & if possible any other sizing info you can give me.
Thanks in advance! I really appreciate it!
