FINISHING: The finished blanket will almost certainly need blocking, and the Bamboo Ewe yarn responds beautifully to this finishing technique. Begin from the central square and pin outwards, straightening and realigning the squares as you go. Finally, pin around the outside edge to achieve a neat, straight finish. Spray with a fine mist of tepid water and leave to dry completely.

I really like this throw. It is so colourful and it looks simple to make. I love that there are different sized squares, and the granny square border really adds to it. This one will be going on my to do list. I think it would look great on the back of the couch.

Winter will not be so gloomy with this Color Burst Easy Crochet Pattern. The various vibrant colors used in making this afghan compensate for the gloomy atmosphere of winter. This is the kind of afghan pattern which is perfect to place on your sofa or couch to give any room a bright and happy atmosphere. Thanks for the pattern which has clear instructions and appropriate diagram. Cheers.
