Finished Afghan!


Praise the creative Maker for enabling me to finish this afghan so quickly, especially after the yarn fiasco, while still wife-ing a busy husband and mothering two boys. I love how this blanket turned out, and I had a hard time giving it up, but I was so excited for our church’s women’s retreat and glad to contribute in a way that the Lord has gifted me. It’s such a blessing to be able to use this aspect of His image in me for the building up of the body. Here’s how it turned out:

I used this tutorial, I’ve made another afghan with it and I was pleased both times. I love how neat and wavy it turns out. The directions don’t have any numbers, so I began with 140 stitches plus 3 for the turning chain. This ended up making an afghan that is 36 inches wide, just right for a cuddly couch blanket.

I had a great time making this, because I got to just pick colors that I like. Usually I make things as gifts or trying to use what I have on hand, and this time I got to go to the store and just pick colors that I like and that I think compliment each other. So much fun! Here it is all tied up and ready to go!


About Rachel

Most importantly, I am saved by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. He is more than enough to satisfy my heart. In His abundant goodness, I am also delighted to be a wife and mama. I work at home and enjoy spending most of my time caring for my husband, 2 sons and new daughter. I also try to squeeze in some creativity, coffee, chocolate, and good books.

  1. Rachel, the afghan was beautiful! It was one of the first things chosen off the door prize table, and I’m sure it will be a warm blessing to the woman who got it!

  2. Just beautiful Rachel! I rejoice, too, knowing that you could share this with your sisters in Christ! Looking forward to hearing about the retreat!
