I enjoyed knitting this afghan up because as I got bored of a square, it was done. I changed her colorways but stuck to her choice of yarn which feels wonderful for a washable fiber.
However, the first version of the pattern I received omitted side sections of the pattern for more than a few squares which made for a frustrating afternoon, until a managed to download another version of the pattern. Blocking is a must to ensure all squares are evenly sized. It's pretty heavy and cozy, and looks really impressive to non-knitters!
All told this was a moderately challenging cabled patchwork quilt. I wanted to do one like this, and it's done.
