Checkerboard Afghan

I knit this one without a pattern.  The edges are a simple garter stitch.  I then knit the inside in a block pattern of knit blocks/ garter blocks in a checkerboard pattern.  The yarn is Valley Yarn Berkshire Bulky in colorway dark grey heather.  Finished it measures 50 in x 68 in.  I gave this one to a nephew and his wife.  I finished it back in March.

Where the Side Walk Ends Afghan

This afghan was finished back in February after starting it in Dec 2022.  I gifted it to my nephew Carson.  The pattern is Where the Sidewalk Ends by Fifty Four Ten Studio.  The yarn is Plymouth Yarn Encore Chunky in colorway oatmeal.  I cast on 130 stitches, did 32 pattern repeats to get a larger size than the pattern intended.  The finished size is 57 in x 69 in.
