Parallel Bars Afghan for Josh and Jessica
Created By: Dar Brown
Craft: knit
Materials: I used the Silky Twist, as suggested, but chose colors to match the new couple's decor: java, olive, cactus, and linen. I also subsstituted a zing of tangerine for rows 43-44, 105-106, and 223-224. As I mentioned in my review, I ran short on colors C and D,so you may wish to buy an extra skein of each.
Pattern Source: lionbrand:

I made this beautiful afghan for my nephew's wedding. He and his bride loved it! The pattern was fun and easy--but next time I'll allow myself more than 6 weeks to knit was a bit of a rush for me. A Lion Brand row counter for this project is a must. I also used colored pencils in my yarn colors to highlight each row on my pattern so I could easily keep track of the stripes.
