Corn on the Cob Afghan


Recommended Posts

I had posted my photos of afghans in the thread titled "I've Been Busy" - I have received a lot of e-mails for patterns. I will be posting others over the next couple of weeks.

 

Both photos are of the same pattern. However, depending on how you change colors determines what it will look like. If the cluster is raised above the row, change colors - it will look like the purple, beige, green afghan.

If the cluster is flat and even with the row, it will look like the green/pink afghan.

 

I'm partial to the purple, beige, green colored afghan.
