I think it would be fairly easy to adapt to a Afgan. Just keep adding rows and make the chain (vertical stripes) to the new measurement. I am guessing that one cake makes 12 inches so depending on how wide you want depends on how many cakes you get. 60 inches would need 5. I am going to try this next after I finish a throw for my sons new unit.
I love this pattern so much I would like to make it an afghan. Are there any such afghan patterns similar to this scarf?
Hello! I’ve reached out to the designer for advice and she or I will reply as soon as possible. Thanks! – Nicola, Editor
Beautiful scarf. can’t wait to make it. I did notice in the added photos which are very helpful but I believe Horizontal and Vertical photos are opposite. Please correct me if I am wrong
Hi Sandy! Thanks for bringing this to our attention! The photos are actually labeled correctly, but, they were oriented the incorrect way. This has now been fixed so it should hopefully make sense now. Happy crocheting! – Nicola, Editor
I wish you guys would have photos of construction and/or stitch charts. This is a really pretty scarf and learning the technique is why I subscribe to pattern sources.
Hello Sarah! Some additional photos have now been added in the downloads section underneath the photos on the right hand side of the page. Hope this helps! – Nicola
