Finally Finished Friday – Hypnotic Tiles Afghan in Pistachio

Hypnotic Tiles in Pistachio

I’m so happy that this Hypnotic Tiles afghan is completed. By the end of this project, I was getting a bit tired of this design, but that’s probably due to the fact that I completed another one shortly before starting this. I don’t usually like to repeat the same project right away, because I lose interest if I find something too repetitive.

I wasn’t thrilled with how this afghan looked in this Pistachio colourway when I first started the project, but by the time it was about halfway done I had changed my mind. I also found that in this colourway it was a little more difficult to space the tiles so that the colours weren’t next to each other. A few times, I consulted my cake of yarn, and tried to predict where the colours would fall for the next tile or two so that I could space them accordingly.

The border on this afghan is very simple, just a few repeats of a double crochet row, and a single crochet row, but I like the width and the simplicity of it, especially next to the layered look of the tiles. Here’s a closeup of the border.

This afghan is for my cousin, her favourite colour is green but I’m not sure if the particular shades will appeal to her. She has fibromyalgia, and I want something that she can wrap herself up in when she has a bad day and needs some comfort so I really hope she likes it.

That’s it for completed projects this week.  Have you finished any projects, or started any new ones?

    1. Thank you, she is more like a sister to me. She is three months older than I am, and we were very close growing up, so I wanted to do something for her that would help to cheer her up when she needs it.

  1. I love the colours of this blanket (and I normally love bright colours!) it really is restful and it looks perfect for wrapping up in. I’m sure your cousin will love it, and she’ll definitely appreciate your love and care for her.

  2. Just seeing this post. I don’t just love this afghan, I adore it. The colour is perfect and goes so well with my living room. The design is beyond beautiful and the texture gives it such life. It couldn’t be anymore perfect. It is honestly, one of the most thoughtful and beautiful gifts I’ve ever received. It’s definitely one of my most prized Possessions. I love wrapping it around myself, to keep me cozy while I read or snuggle with my boy and it brings me comfort on my days when I’m not feeling so well. And yes, it’s like getting a hug from you and being reminded how blessed we are to have each other as cousins but more importantly as friends and more like sisters. There is just one problem, it’s very popular and sometimes I have to fight the boy and or the dog for it. Giggle Thanks again for such a thoughtful, beautiful and perfect gift.
