Horay it is done! It only took me forever, this was a great first non scarf project, and super easy, I used edge to edge seaming which worked out perfectly, it is all done in garter stitch, I would tell you more but since I am in argentina the yarn is different here, it is a cotton blend- in gold, light yellow and baby blue, which white arounds the edges. I used size 4 mm needles.

Anyway here are the pictures! :happydance:

I love it!! I'd love to make one like that but I cant get to make the seams good... :(

Did you work an edge in each piece?

By the way... we were neighbours at some point Katy, I am from Peru!! :happydance:

I know how much work an afghan is.....I just finished one for my son recently. Good job! I love the way the colors look together, and the edging is very nice. :thumbsup:

How long? lol this is a SUPER easy project, I have been kniting for a while, but I ONLY just learned how to purl! before this I had only made scarfs! This is ALL garter stitch in squares, it doesnt get easier than that! the border is just garter stich as well with a little color thrown in which I learned how to do from videos on this site! This is a perfect begining project. I didn't have a pattern or anything, I just made it up as I went along, 5 sqaures of each color and I just put them together how I thought they looked best. Thanks for all the comments everyone :) I just hope that the person I gave it to will use it now!

Wow! Your blanket is wonderful. I am working on something similar for my DH. I have been wondering how to finish it off, if you don't mind I am going to use your idea.

I have 9 of the 24 squares finished. Did you bind them together first and then do the border? For the border did you pick up stitches going around? I was thinking of crocheting a border, but I'm not sure. I really like your idea.

Thanks for any help.

:inlove: the colours! I want to do my kitchen in a scheme similar to that. Something about yellow and blue together saying bright and cheery!
