Color Waves Afghan

Recommended Posts

I started this three years ago for my cousin who was going away to college. I never finished it, and then we decided to have a surprise party for her 21st birthday last month and the heat was on. :) I finished it, barely (found myself weaving in ends on the morning of the party), and I'm glad I did because I really ended up loving it. She seemed to, as well. :)  I used the Wave Rider Throw pattern found here: http://www.spinsandneedles.co.uk/blog/patterns/pattern-for-wave-rider-throw/ though I used a heavier weight yarn and made it bigger overall.

That is just gorgeous! I bet she loves it! Good things come to she who waits lol

 

I am very curious what yarn you used. Is it a long color change yarn, or is each stripe a different piece of yarn? Either way, the colors are great, comfy looking yet vibrant.

 

Thanks for sharing your work, its inspiring!

That is exquisite!  I, too, am curious about the yarn!  Variegated or solid colors?

Thanks! I used Lion Brand Amazing yarn. Each stripe is a different colorway (every stripe is two rows, and I would then switch colors so I had a lot of ends to weave in!), but every color is variegated so you'd get a lot of stripes that changed colors within itself.  I believe the original pattern called for Noro, which I suppose would have the same effect.

That afghan is just beautiful. Your hard work and effort to get it done was surely worth it.
