I finished my son's afghan last week, but am just now getting the time to post it.
It turned out to be a great stash-buster and my son loves it.
He's had this Spongebob blanket that has been his comfort blanket since his first birthday and as soon as I finished this one he decided that he wanted this one with him at night instead. Quite an honor, let me tell you. :)
I just love the way all the random colors came together. Looking at all that leftover yarn I really didn't think it would turn out as nicely as it did.
And since it's all acrylic yarn it washes beautifully and is surprisingly soft.
Update: You can find more about the pattern I used to crochet it here. Basically, it's a (slip stitch followed by a double crochet) repeated all the way across one row; then you double crochet in every slip stitch and slip stitch in every double all the way across the next row. And repeat!
I'll be linking this up to a few of the great parties in my Link Parties tab as well as Met Monday!
