Sometimes we need an afghan for the summer, when wool is just too warm. This afghan fills the bill nicely. Knit of Plymouth’s Jeannee Chunky yarn in a fun slip-stitch cable pattern, it’s cozy without being overwhelming.

The color repeat flips internally, which was a bit of serenditpity--I had less of the white than of the other two colors, and that necessitated that I be more creative in how I switched colors as I went along.
