Winter is Coming - Half double crochet with 5mm/H hook using Red Heart Super Saver Yarn. Finished afghan is 6' 3" wide by 8' 2" long. I began this afghan on November 28, 2016 and finished January 23, 2017.  I did not work it up in my normal manic speed but rather in a slow paced, when I felt like it.  The "Winter" part of the afghan does have a color variation as I ran out of color and could not find a match.  Lesson learned to always make sure you have sufficient matching yarn on hand. The "flowers" on the tree branches was a bit of a pain and when I began, I started stitching on the wrong side. After I ripped that all out I made sure I knew exactly what side I was stitching on.  This afghan could be rearrange in different ways or bits of it incorporated into other afghans, it could also be crocheted using many different colors to compliment your decor.  I appreciate Tina Parker from Ravelry.com for making this pattern available to the public.

Thanks for viewing!

Absolutely gorgeous!

There's not much in this world that can't be improved by either chocolate, bacon or glitter.

This is super amazing! All the color changes look very intentional, including the variation at "Winter". I love all the panels. Smiley Fantastic job.

Since words are escaping me right now, I thought a meme would express just how blown away I am. But that failed, too, so whoa.  Shocked
