I purchased HUNDREDS of skeins of Bernat’s Waverly yarn because I love its softness and colors and they’re discontinuing it. It’s been fun having so much yarn to work with and I finally made a weekend afghan because I had so much yarn to spare. Weekend afghans are usually created with a very large crochet hook and multiple strands at once to create a thick and lush afghan, but they take a lot of yarn.
I made this throw for my mom from four different Waverly yarn colors using three strands at a time. It took me about 6 hours over two days but mostly because I was experimenting with stitches and color changes. Now that I’m more comfortable, I could recreate this in about 4 hrs.
