Lizard Ridge

lizard ridge

Pattern: Lizard Ridge by Laura Aylor
Yarn: Noro Kureyon in the following colourways; 102 (four), 154 (three), 153 (two), 170 (two), 180 (two), 92, 134, 138, 159, 164, 165, 166, 182. Cascade 220 in black (for seaming) and teal (for edging).
Needles: US 8 (5.0mm) 24″ Addi Turbo Circular

Six weeks of marathon knitting, seaming, and crochetting later, the blanket is done.

A few notes on the project. I alternated skeins in each block, rather than the ends of one skein. I mattress stitched the entire thing together. When it came to the edging I dropped a hook size so I could single crochet around the edge and not have to guess where I put the hook. This resulted in a slight ruffle that went away when the blanket was blocked. There are plans to back the afghan this fall. Despite the pretty looks it has, it is made out of Kureyon and is bloody uncomfortable to cuddle with.

    It looks beautiful! I really like all the bright colors, it makes it so cheerful. I agree with you about Kureyon – not the most snuggly yarn.

    Absolutely Stunning! I am working on one of these too….I don’t think I will be getting those gorgeous color contrasts though. I have been experimenting with different methods of switching the colors. Since this is one of my early knitting projects, could you tell me how you will back it???? Again, absolutely beautiful. 😀

    So glad I am doing mine in Silk Garden so I can cuddle up in it!

    I am sure if when you put a backing on it it will be much better!
