Need to really be careful with this pattern if you are a lefty. Better think before beginning the border or you will be frogging! Be nice if they would just once cater a pattern to a lefty....gets old reversing patterns.

This was a fun blanket to make, I used Homespun in Green Apple, Tudor, and Cream colors. It turned out beautiful and the person I gave it to loves how warm and soft it is. This was my first afghan using Homespun but it has quickly made me a fan.

I had trouble doing the boarder so I abandoned it and chose to use a Starburst shell pattern instead alternating the colors as my border. I made this as a wedding present and my neice loved it and the colors. This is a great warm cozy blanket.

This project was simple but I found that the instructions end up with tons of ends to weave in, more than I felt comfortable with. I ended up carrying the yarn colors up along the sides of the border, and not cutting the colors. On the blocks,I started out whip stitching them, but ended up single crocheting them together for strength, and that way the ends were securely hidden, in the edge finish. Finished, the project is VERY attractive, and as a gift got rave reviews from a male recipient.

I have made three of these so far and they turn out so beautiful. I also adjusted to a slightly larger size for a full size bed and the patterned border still turned out nice. I have used browns for one, blues for another, and black, white, and grays for the third. Thanks Lion Brand for making such a nice selection of blending colors.

I loved this pattern, i made it in christmas colors for my future in-laws! It's only October and as soon as they saw it immediatly put it on the back of their recliner! I will make this again, only maybe a little bigger next time? I did a single row of a different color (in sc) around each black, i love the way this turned out.

I made this for my Son and Daughter-in-Law for a housewarming gift. The yarn was hard to get used to at first but once I got started it went well. They LOVED it. It is wasrm and cozy and washes well. I would make it again.

I actually used a baby yarn to make this. I make a lot of baby blankets for charities and this was a good one because it was easy to do and turned out so cute.

The border on this afghan is what made it so gorgeous. I had no problem with the pattern and I am sure I will make it again. When I put the squares together, I crocheted them together with the colors in the afghan rather than sewing them and it gave it a bit of a plaid. This is for my teen niece and she has gone ape over it!

Border Patterned Blanket Reviewed by CAROLE GOLDMAN on 2008-05-20 *****
I made this afghan for my son and daughter-in-law in the exact colors you show. The afghan is magnificant. The only problem is working with the Homespun. It ravels. I decided I would knot the yarn before I start the chain and at the end of the squares before I wove it in. For whoever asks for your help with this, it works. Other than that, it was easy and fun and of course the feel of the yarn is like feeling a piece of soft fuzzy fabric.
