Daffodil Blanket

Several years ago I purchased a large quantity of hot yellow yarn on clearance.  I didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it was I Love this Yarn, so I knew I'd eventually use it.  A couple of blankets later (Zipper Blanket and the Blended Arrows Blanket), I still had some left, and I wanted to use it up.  This color is almost painfully bright, so finding colors to go with it was a challenge.  Then it occurred to me: if you're going to make a yellow blanket, you'll need some real variation in the type of yellow.  So I grabbed the leftover Buttercup yarn from the Speedy Afghan, and the leftover (I still have a ton) Banana yarn from the Easter Egg Blanket, and started looking through patterns.

I wanted the colors to really blend together instead of being obvious stripes.  Stitch 25 does that.  I've used this stitch before to make the Star Spangled Afghan, but for that I used a different color pattern, where 2 of the 3 strands were the same.  This time there were three distinct colors.  I love the way this turned out: it reminds me of daffodils.  This is a great way to make a single colored blanket look interesting: pick three shades of blue for example, and make your blue afghan.

Color Pattern: (1 row of buttercup, 1 row of hot yellow, 1 row of banana) repeated, ending with hot yellow.

Chain 182, then work stitch 25 until work reaches desired length.  Add the standard border to complete:
Add this border in Banana and you're done:
Round 1: sc around, 3 sc in corner
Round 2: dc around, 5 dc in corner
Round 3: sc around, 3 sc in corner
Round 4: dc around, 5 dc in corner
Round 5: sc around, 3 sc in corner

I used I Love this Yarn in Banana, Hot Yellow, and Buttercup with a J hook to make this.

  2.  Thank you for such a great post you wrote here and I'm very obliged to write an article here on the benefit of herbal herbs.I am 29 years old and have been diagnosed with breast cancer, ease of treatment and a similar story, except for my first acceptance as a rejection of herbal medicine. I was not part of the Perseid movement and did not really build relationships with any of them, I just believed in their operation. I say this because it was during the use of Dr. Itua herbal medicine that I now attest that herbal medicine is real, the phytotherapy Dr. Itua heals my breast cancer which I suffered for 2 years.
