This is a beautiful afghan, but I did not want to stitch five panels together. So....I knitted all 5 panels at the same time on a round needle and separated them wIth markers. It took some concentration to have the right stitch for each panel, but once I got going it was a breeze and NO sewing.

Beautiful—but a lot of work!

I love the look and feel of the finished afghan. The hand-dyed yarn and the stitch changes made for some gorgeous textural variations. But if you’re making this for a wedding (as I was) or other gift, give yourself some extra finishing time! Perhaps some knitters regularly finish their projects by sewing up almost 7 yards of seams and picking up 544 stitches. But that was new for me. And though I knitted to the gauge exactly, I used every bit of 13 skeins—not the suggested 11. Beautiful pattern, though.

Beautiful—but a lot of work!

I really liked the look of my finished afghan: the yarn is fabulous, and the pattern has so many lovely textures. But I have a couple of complaints. First, I knitted exactly to the gauge, and I used nearly every inch of 13 skeins—not the 11 skeins suggested. Also, the finishing work took me forever! Perhaps other knitters are accustomed to sewing almost 7 yards of joining seams, and then picking up and knitting 544 stitches. But alas, I am not. Beautiful pattern, but if you’re knitting for a wedding or some other gift, give yourself plenty of time to complete it!

This is prettier online than reality. I ordered it and didn’t like how it was turning out so I made my own using this beautiful yarn. Wish I could post pic.
