Stars and Squares Afghan

The recipients of this afghan eloped.

They can keep me from coming to the wedding, but they can't keep me from knitting an afghan!
Unfortunately I didn't get a good picture. ~ Afghans are very hard to photograph.

   The pattern is The Quilt Look Afghan from Lion Brand ~ and I followed it almost exactly. If I were to make it again, there are some things I would do differently ~ but I probably won't.

   The directions for the stars say to switch to circular needles when you get enough stitches. I didn't. Instead, as the work progressed, I kept my stitches on the double points by corking the ends. I used only four needles, which left me with one needle with less stitches than the others. This one I didn't cork, giving me an extra reminder of where the end of the round was.
