May 30, 2016: Final Copy Released

Yarn Requirements for 9 blocks and borders

2 Colors*
Vanna’s Choice or Loops and Threads Impeccable
1100 g or 38.5 oz of MC
800 g or 28 oz of CC

4 Colors
Those who tested in 4 Colors will be available to answer questions in the thread on yarn used, amounts, etc.

Skills: Intermediate to relatively advanced work, but full tutorial support provided to help even an adventurous beginner succeed. I love to teach and help people make their crochet dreams come true!

Sizing: 60” square as written in aran-weight yarn. You can opt for 80” square by making 25 blocks, and the abbreviated border. See notes in thread. I also advise this option for DK yarn (and then your afghan will likely be about 60-65” square anyway).

Some ideas about how to change the borders for different numbers of blocks.

Thank you to ALL testers (you know who you are).
Special mention to dmbonner and dakotastamper, who stuck this out from the beginning, working and re-working each step with me, and providing photographs that I could not do on my own!
