I'm looking for a knit afghan pattern to use to make Football Star Son a maroon & gold Texas State University afghan using Wool-Ease Thick & Quick (in Claret and Butterscotch). I decided on a very "practical" wool blend yarn (as opposed to 100% wool) that would hold up if accidentally (or intentionally) thrown into the dorm washing machine. Besides, it's not like a maroon and gold afghan will be much of an heirloom or have a shelf-life of more than about 4 years or so. Anyway, I feel that the yarn is too thick to crochet with so this is why I'm looking for a knit pattern. The thing is that I want it to reversible and most knit afghan patterns I've found aren't. So, does anybody know of any reversible two-colored afghan patterns that would make a nice thick afghan?
Also, I've fallen in love with a book that I wanted to show y'all. It's called Ella Rae Bags (Book #8) and has some really cute knit felted bag patterns. I hope to try some of these bags out substituting crochet where possible and incorporating the knit embellishments when needed. Some of my favorite patterns in this book are:
Okay, back to crocheting with ecru string!
