Yesterday afternoon I sat down on the living room floor and crocheted together all 32 rainbow hexagons. It took four hours, and my right arm aches today, but at least all the pieces are attached!
The afghan is a good size, the right size to cover the foot of a queen-size bed, or to be a double lap blanket. It would even be big enough for the top of a twin bed, I think, though it wouldn’t hang over the sides by much. It is heavy and warm and colorful. Really, this is the afghan I’ve always wanted to make. I love rainbows. Always have.
I have been thinking about writing up instructions for this and selling them. It’s a nice project for a person who is only just beginning crochet, I think–it’s all chains and double-crochets–but it produces a pretty spectacular result, and is more interesting than granny squares. What do you think? Would you pay $5 for instructions for the block and suggestions for what colors to use and how to cycle them?
Ahhh, I do like this afghan. And now I get to move on with the next one, which will be just as much fun. As soon as my right arm heals up.
