Hi everyone! Grin  I am here to present my Color Wheel Afghan.  This pattern is circa 1971.  I enjoy collecting vintage patterns, and when I got this pattern, I KNEW I had to hook it! 



Pattern: Color Wheel Afghan by Columbia-Minerva



The Yarn: (from my massive stash)  Loops & Threads Impeccable Solids (L&T) Cherry, Red Heart Super Saver Solids (RH) Cherry, L&T Pumpkin, RH Pumpkin, L&T Butterscotch, Hobby Lobby I Love This Yarn! Solids Yellow, RH Paddy Green, RH Hunter Green, L&T Aqua, RH Real Teal, RH royal, L&T lavender, RH dark orchid, and Red Heart With Love Solids Boysenberry



Hook Used: J Hook

For size reference, that's a yardstick in the middle...

swirl of joy!


Thanks for peeking! Grin

THANKS! Grin

How long did it take?
I worked on it on & off for around 6 weeks, but I did lots of other projects during that time...hooplas, bags, baby hats, blanket squares, shrines, and so on (I think I have Crafty ADHD).  It really was a quick pattern...worked in rows, in moss/linen/woven stitch (the sc, ch1 one).

Congrats on your new afghan! It is so beautiful and I hope you're proud because completing an afghan, whether crochet or knit, is always a feat! I really enjoy the colors that you used. They flow nicely into one another, whereas there is a bit of disparity in the colors of the pattern in my humble opinion.

This rocks! Thanks for sharing!

Wow, pinkleo! It's fabulous! I'm not much for rainbow colored items, but this is just gorgeous and I do love the spiral in the center. How cool that it's worked in rows, too- I was wondering how you manged those color changes Smiley

Oh my, it's fantastic, I have been looking for a crochet pattern for an exact same afghan for my son's 21st.  I found a knitted one but couldn't convert it successfully to crochet.  On the hunt for the pattern, thank you for posting, *happy dance*

Hi, I have been making this afghan for many years now, they are always a big hit and you have done a beautiful job on this one!  I had a pattern for a baby sized color wheel that I used to make in pink and white and then in blue and white.  I have since lost my pattern and cannot find it anywhere.  Would someone happen to have the "baby" version pattern and if so may I please have a copy?  Any and all help is appreciated, thank you so much.
