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...

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).
