100% cotton crocheted Afghan 195 x 210 cm


For this hand crafted, beautifully, One Of A Kind Afghan i used 13 colours  (+ black and white) :


This stunning afghan measures 195 x 210 cm.


The colours used : light yellow, dark yellow, orange, red, baby pink, hot pink, purple, lilac, light blue, dark blue, aqua, grey, grass green
This 100 % cotton yarn is mercerised and gassed and has a slight sheen to it.


I made 156 different coloured granny squares, not 1 repeats in colours.


For those of you who are interested in the dry facts :

Every Square takes 1,5 hours from start to finish and has 12 ends to wave in.
It is made of 8 rows and 6 colours each.

It has 12 Rows of 13 squares.

It needed 23 long rows to attach the squares to each other, and 1 long row (equals 4 short rows) around the whole afghan, each of those rows took again about 45 minutes.


It had more then 2015 ends to wave in - why more? because sometimes the yarn run out in the middle of a row.

I used 2.8 kilo 100% cotton yarn in an array of beautiful rainbow colours.  There are more than 7000 metres of yarn and over 258 hours of work in this stunning one of a kind afghan
