Bernat Mystery Afghan is finally complete!

One more afghan finished for this year! I think that makes three, or maybe even four. I'll have to go back over this past year's worth of crochet posts and count how many!

Anyway, this one is the Bernat Mystery Afghan Crochet-along afghan. Some of you participated in this project as well and have made your own similar afghan. I am so very pleased with the result, and I've enjoyed checking out everyone else's finished afghans on Bernat's Flickr page.

Here's what mine looks like...

Bernat Mystery Afghan is finally complete!Here it is, all spread out over our big cozy chair.

Bernat Mystery Afghan is finally complete!I was intrigued by the border pattern when I read the instructions, and I really love how it turned out. It's not something I ever would have come up with on my own, sort of outside of my creative box for afghan borders, and I really like it!

Bernat Mystery Afghan is finally complete!Can you imagine spending a snowy winter afternoon cuddled under this afghan with a good book and a cup of hot tea? I sure can!

Bernat Mystery Afghan is finally complete!Of course, you'd fold it neatly when you're ready to get up and make dinner, right?

The yarn this pattern called for is Bernat Softee Chunky, a yarn that I had never used before, so I was anxious to give it a try. I found it easy to work with, not prone to splitting, and very soft! I enjoyed it. I even have enough leftover to make a lap blanket or throw using a pattern similar to this one which is so good for using up odd amounts of yarn and still ending up with a usable piece. The only difference is that I am making this one square instead of rectangle!

So this afghan will be wrapped up and mailed to my nephew and his new bride for their wedding gift. I sure hope they like it! One week after they got married, another niece got married, so I will be starting on her wedding gift afghan after the new year. Never a dull moment for wedding and baby gifts in this family!

Happy Stitching!
