View Full Version : FO: Sampler Afghan

08-28-2012, 11:17 PM
I just finished this sampler afghan two weeks ago. It took me forever to sew all the squares together! It's definitely a long way from perfect, but it was fun to learn all the different stitch patterns and experiment with lace and cables and such. I'm proud of myself for actually finishing it...I think I knit the first few squares over a year ago before really getting serious about finishing it this summer.

Love all the different textures and stitches! What size are the panels?

You are all too sweet! Thank you for the kind comments!

Love all the different textures and stitches! What size are the panels?

I knit them to about 12" x 12" before blocking and a single crochet border for each one. The finished blanket is probably closer to 14" x 14" per panel with the borders and stretch factor.
