Garden Coverlet :)
Created By: Adriana Tischler
Pattern Source: other:

So this was my first afghan, which I started after only a few weeks of self teaching myself to crochet. It took about 6-7 weeks, going faster once I memorized the pattern for the hexagons! :)
I made this for my niece's baby, and got it finished and mailed so it arrived as soon as they were home for the hospital!
I love the way the front and back each are unique and with different texture, so I am including a picture of each!
Note that I used an extra Beige skein to add a border around.
The pattern does not indicate how to join the hexagons, and in spite of finding better ways to join, I decided to join each flower center to the petals with the center color, then the petals in their own color, and also the chocolate and beige with their respective colors. So a lot of weaving in ends, but it was very much worth the final look!
Vanna's choice is very easy to use, as it glides easily on the hooks. It also allows for a stretchy blanket, which is nice.
Since Vanna's is 100% acrylic it is not very summer friendly. If I make this blanket again I may use Cotton-ease. ;)
Overall, I am very happy with the result, and the ladies at the local Crochet Guild loved it!

With the leftover yarn I made some matching slippers!
