And this one shows the edging. It is a simple two rows of single crochet, with a final row of double crochet. The entire afghan measures about 50" x 50", a perfect size for curling up on the couch with a hot cup of coffee or tea.
The border looks black, but is actually dark brown, which really makes the turquoise color in the variegated yarn "pop".
My next project is going to be a king size afghan for my cousin Karla, who just repainted her bedroom in a gorgeous cream, with dark plum on the bottom.
This is the afghan I am going to attempt for that:

I will be using a combination of a dark plum, a variegated purple, and a cream color yarn.
