Bobble Zigzag Afghan Ta Da!

Spring Project is DONE!!!
Photographed here with our baby plum tree -  in full bloom!
Edged on each of the long sides with a double V stitch (DC, ch, DC, 2 ch, DC, ch, DC)
and then a single crochet.

It can be taken outside, onto the front porch, for those breezy Spring days:

 It can also sit on the Little Bugs' (#6s') bed:
Coordinates with the quilt nicely, eh?
See this post referencing the book where the pattern can be found. :-)

Have A Weekend Full of Spring Joy!

Oh and BTW...I am crocheting along with the Crochet-a-Long...
A variation I am excited to share in a future post.
Thanks to all of you that are participating!!!

    1. Oh a giant granny - that sounds like something I need to add to my list. The biggest granny I ever made was just a cushion...but a giant one, now that intrigues me.

    1. Hi Isa,

      I am so glad you found my blog. Welcome! Pinterest is a lot of fun, that's for sure. Since I purchased a book with the pattern in it I would be unable to provide a tutorial; however, it looks like Amazon has many used books for only $10. Here's a link to where you can purchase it: http://www.amazon.com/200-Ripple-Stitch-Patterns-Exciting/dp/089689276X This book is full of several patterns that I have used and love! Good luck and I am so happy you are following.
