My first ever completed afghan (well, that's not a star), affectionately called "The Ugly Blankie".

There was no rhyme or reason to the color patterns..I just took all my scrap pieces of yarn, rolled them up into one huge ball, and started crocheting until it was big enough to cover my twin-sized bed.

Made from a mixture of RH: SS and CSS yarns.

Thanks everyone. Smiley

Tanzie: I noticed that, too. I believe it's just how the colors fell when I when I joined the rounds. I hated it at first, but now I just think it adds to the character of it.

yeah, that ridge happens when you crochet in the round. its just where the join is- in some stitch patterns it isn't noticeable, but in others (and especially when you change colours), it is.

I have tons of these blankets.  My great-grandmother thinks they are the best so she keeps making them.  I like them because they tend to be heavy and I like having blankets weigh me down when I sleep.
