Retirement Granny Afghan

(click here for abbreviations)

materials:

2 or 3 - 8 oz. skeins: dark brown, warm brown, buff fleck, cornmeal, rose pink
size "J" hook

notes:

this pattern will make a square afghan that does not have straight sides. it is an appropriate size to be a queen-king bedspread, but is relatively light for it's size.

yarn amounts and final size depend on your personal usage. June and I had squares that were approximately 6 inches square. 6 inch squares should take about 5 rounds.

B = warm brown (49)
F = buff fleck (40)
P = rose pink (32)
C = cornmeal (24)
