I love the colors on a DR. Pepper coke can! They are stunning!  Then I decided to make an afghan that was inspired by the Dr. Pepper cans!! I hope you like it!!

Beautiful. What size is it. I love that people get inspiration from all over. And that different things inspire different people.

Oh! Sorry! Im new to this community so please forgive me for not including the sizes.

I made it to fit a queen sized bed, and with redhart yarn I got from walmart.  The crochet hook size I used was J.  I will gladly scan the pattern I used, if someone wants it just pm me with your email address.

It was 5 squares across and 7 squares down and there was 35 squares all together.  Each square had 10 rows all together.  Its a granny square pattern I found in one of my mom's older crochet books.

ANNNND

My dog Yoshi, he loves crochet'd afghans.  I couldn't spread it out on the bed fast enough for him to lay in it.  Now it's his new favorite blanket.

That is awesome!  I love the colors on the DP cans too.  We live just a little ways from Waco, TX,  where Dr. Pepper originated, and where the Dr. Pepper Museum is at  (that's a really *neat* place to go by the way, if you're ever in Waco, you should really check it out) 

 I like the pattern you used too... it really came together nicely  Smiley

My boyfriend is an absolute Dr. Pepper Addict. xD
This inspires me to try and come up with something using the colors. I just have to figure out what. An afghan would be a wonderful idea and I may make it eventually. :3
