Each color used in this She Shells Seashells Afghan has its own individual character and stands out by itself. However when combined together in one project design, it did not come out as stunning. Using a more vibrant color combo would make the whole project more exciting. Cheers!

I apologize. I just saw what the multiple is for this afghan. I plan to make it soon.

I am an avid Roseanna Beck follower. I see that now she's putting a note in that gives the multiples so we can make her afghans to the size of our liking. I think that's great and that every designer should do that when possible.... Sue N.
