Final Peruvian Print Strip!

Finally! I have a strip finished in a size I like. This one is 18 stitches wide, all half-double crochet, on a J hook. It took an entire skein of Red Heart Super Saver yarn in the color Peruvian Print, and turned out 6 inches wide and 60 inches long. I'm going to edge the strips in Soft White, and I should have seven strips when I'm done, so it will make a nice-sized afghan. I'll crochet all the strips together, so there shouldn't be any sewing on this afghan.

I have to once again thank my friend Linda (aka Crocheting Fool) for the suggestion of crocheting this yarn into narrow strips. I really like this much better and I'm glad I decided to do a narrower strip.

Can't wait to see it all put together. It's going to be really pretty. I liked the way your strip looked so much, I went out and bought some to make house socks. Thanks for the inspiration. Happy Hooking. :)

Thank you all for the compliments! This yarn is interesting, to say the least, so I'm hoping the end result does look nice.

I was curious to see what this yarn would look like crocheted.

I just found this print yesterday and used it last night to crochet a hat.

Was just reading some posts on Crochet Partners Yahoo group about that yarn.

Haven't tried it yet.
