Have you ever wondered what it takes to make one of our "Wedding Afghans"?


Well, here goes.  It takes four skeins of Lion Brand Pound of Love yarn.  This is sixty four ounces or 4,80 yards of yarn.  We use the color antique white.  In addition, you need a crochet hook, yarn needle, scissors, and blocking mats.


The afghan is made up of one hundred eight, six inch Granny Squares.  It consists of nine columns with twelve squares in each column.  It is finished with a border that measures babout three inches.  This produces an afghan approximately seventy-eight inches by sixty inches.


It takes me about thirty minutes to crochet each square.  The blocking of all one hundred eight blocks takes about three hours.  Setting the blocks together takes about fifteen hours .  Then its time for the border which takes another five hours.  This is a total of roughly eighty hours, more or less.  


We have now delivered sixteen Wedding Afghans.
