This next afghan was made using all cotton Lily Sugar 'n' Cream yarn and Bernat Handicrafter Twists and Bernat's Susan G. Komen sponsored pink stripes yarn.
I just made up 60 circles, crocheted them together to make flowers, then crocheted the flowers together adding the 4 extra circles to the sides. Then filled in all the spaces in between. Then put a border around the whole thing.
It's single crocheted. The border is single crocheted in the back loop only. I just thought it would look more interesting. It's just free-handed with no pattern so it's not perfect or anything.
Anyway, it's a nice heavy cotton blanket. I love cotton!
