Notes

Finished size: 75” square.

113 rounds.

11 days to crochet.

This afghan weighs 962.oz/6.01lbs! Because the Caron yarn is somewhat thicker than Red Heart, I should have used a bigger hook, but then it would have come out even bigger! I just think the Caron Perfect Match and OnePounders are too thick a yarn for this afghan. Just my opinion, though. If you want a real heavy afghan, that’s the yarn to use!

The dark green (hunter) isn’t as dark as it shows in the photos.
