The afghan I plan to knit is based on a Patons pattern. Stockinet stitch, knit holding together four strands of chunky yarn and using big needles. A simple pattern whose 'wow' factor depends on colour selection.
I have chosen Cascade Eco Yarn in four different colours.
For reference, that's a grapefruit beside the ball of yarn. I think I've just discovered a new training tool for junior bowlers.
