This afghan was, unsurprisingly, for my mother’s birthday. She loves sunflowers! I’m lucky that she hasn’t stopped liking them. It makes gift giving very easy. It came out more of a throw than an afghan, but it’s big enough for her to snuggle under it, and she’s taken it to work to help fend off office-coldness.
This blanket took about 1340 yards of yarn. I felt like the yardage was way off in the pattern, because I used almost a skein less of green and yellow than called for, but needed more brown. My gauge was tight, that’s true, but that means if I had been looser as called for my brown yardage would have been REALLY off, and I was only short by a smidgen as it was.
