The pattern for this afghan is found in “OUR BEST AFGHANS A to Z” by Leisure Arts. I nearly always buy one pound skeins of yarn unless the pattern calls for less than 16 ounces of one color of yarn. This particular afghan measures 53 1/2” x 64 1/2” and requires 15 ounces Blue, 11 ounces White, 9 ounces Dark Blue, 7 ounces Light Blue, crochet hook size J, Worsted Weight Yarn. Other colors could be substituted, if desired. This pattern makes a beautiful afghan finished with blue fringe spaced across end of rows.
