Hey! So I got the idea for this project from viewing this amazing Bulbasaur afghan and all of the other lovely afghans linked in this topic https://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=396342.0#axzz2MYK3jkD5
After seeing these, I went on the hunt to find a good cross-stitch Loki pattern to transform into a bit afghan. Unfortunately, I can't find it again. (so if anyone does see it, please post?)

My friend absolutely adores Loki so I had the brilliant idea of embarking on this quest. He's composed of an ungodly amount of granny squares. There are approximately 550 2 inch squares making up Loki. The black on either side are rows of 3, 4, and 5 inch squares. I added a blanket layer on the opposite side to make him really nice to cuddle up with and to hide all of the yarn ends.

Full view Loki:


All in all, he took around 300 hours to complete, which I had not anticipated when I started. It became a matter of pride to complete it and proud I am. As of now, I'm granny squared out and will not be doing anything like this in the near future.) Enjoy!

Awesome! I have always wanted to make one of the granny square afghans like this but I just don't have the patience.

Thanks everyone!
Ha, odd thing is, I've only known her since last August. But yes, she's a pretty good friend.
