Love the color combo!! It looks great and so warm and snuggly!! You did a great job. I have been crocheting for years too and just did my first afghan last year in the 12" square CAL. I never had the patience for such a big project before but once it was done I really felt pleased with myself...lol. And it wasn't near as cute as this one Wink

I'm curious on how it was made....are those individual squares or did you do it length wise and later add the black strips going across the width? I'm sorry if that was confusing or if it should have been obvious how it was done...i'm not always that observant  Undecided

it's actually done in a 3-1 pattern. I did three rows of the bon bon (pink and blue) yarn in double crochet and then one row with the black. The black row pattern is 3 double crochet then the fourth stitch instead of going into the top loops and yarning over I jumped down to below the three rows of pink and yarn over and pulled it through then worked the rest of it like a regular dc. then 3 more regular dc and the fourth goofy stitch the whole way across. I doubt that makes any sense, lol. if not just ask and i'll try to clarify or take pics or something to explain it better, lol.

Oh I see! I never would have guessed it was done like that! I love the effect it gives!

Wow! Great job! This looks amazing and so much better than many of the afghans you find in stores. I like the black outline, too. Smiley
