Inspired by colorful abstract paintings, this afghan is large enough to go over the top of a single bed, but it’s also the right size for a picnic on the beach. It is made with three sizes of strips using a hairpin loom (which have rows of sc between the side loops ), woven together. There is a right and a wrong side. Afghan is edged with a twisted fringe on the short edges, scs and hdcs along the long edges, using a neutral shade to imitate traditional woven blankets.View Project
