Here is a simple, quick , and full of texture project for you from Crafting Designs Friends. The Peaked Shells Afghan is this week's Monday's Find. I try to mix things up for you and I love that I found this. Kate Wagstaff is known for her beautiful afghans. Have you worked any of hers up? They truly are beautiful. If you get a second, also check out the baby items that Kate has designed.
Materials: I chose to use Caron Simply Soft because I had a bunch on hand and my girls loved the colors. You could use any yarn for this project and just work it to your desired size.
The qty of yarn will depend on the size of the afghan that you make. This will take around 2,500 yards for a 4'x4' size.
Hook: I used a Boye size H. Again, you may use your preferred hook size that works best with the yarn you choose.
