Hexagon/Triangle Afghan - knitting completed

RickeScott's picture

I finished the knitting early this morning. Still need to weave in loose ends, tighten up the junction points, decide about the border (I seem to struggle on this aspect of my projects) and then maybe block it. It was mostly fun to knit, at times something of an obsession, but now that the end is in sight, I'm sooo glad to took this on.

It ended up larger than I'd planned. Final pre-blocking dimensions are 46" x 70"...

...How long did this take

...How long did this take you? I think it is an accomplishment to finish a hat or a sock...but an afghan....it would take me years. It is beautiful, I don't even think it requires a border, but I agree if you add one it should be very simple.

Fantastic! Looks great. I could see it with a garter stitch border mitered at the corners. I think a nice plain border would set off the texture of the afghan
