Peek-A-Boo Afghan

A lady that I work with is having her 2nd baby in August and after waiting and waiting for her to tell me what her colors for the nursery will be, I just made this. It has every baby color in it, so something should work.

I got the pattern from the Coats and Clark site. The pattern says it is for a beginner and should work up in 12 hours. I did add the shell border, because it looked like it just stopped and wasn't complete. Well, the beginner part I can believe, it is pretty easy, but there are a jillion ends to weave in. My fingers actually got sore before I got them all done. I crochet pretty fast and it took me about 30 hours to complete this afghan. The size is approx 36 by 42. I'm not sure even Lily Chin could do it in 12 hours. Notice the back-makes it totally reversible.

The yarn I ordered several months ago for a different baby afghan, but I didn't like the yarn and the pattern together, so it has been sitting in my stash, just waiting for a project. I think I'll hang on to this pattern cuz it would be a great way to use up little amounts of leftover yarn.

Hi Cay sorry to hear about your friends breast cancer. I made the peek a boo pattern about three years ago and boy are you right those ends are a killer. I actually started a second one that's in my unfinished pile because of those darned ends, but it does make a gorgeous afghan and very warm as well. Brenda (a crochet partner)
