>Yoyo Afghan Continued

>

all squares up to this point

I am working on my yoyo afghan again after putting it off for a while. I spent the weekend at my sister’s house in Nevada. Got a few squares completed and another one started. It needs 40 total squares to cover my king-size bed. So, I still have a ways to go. This is being made out of size 10 and knit cro sheen. Most of the threads are vintage threads; I have purchased a few new greens to give me a little more variety in the green, and the black I bought about 5 years back from a discontinued line of thread. That is how it goes — a lot of old, a little new, and a nice variety of colors for me.

orange
size of yoyo's

Shades of orange and peach. See the dime in the second orange block photo, this gives you an idea of the size of the crochet yoyos.

yellow

Shades of yellows and ochers. A few variegated thread and a few with metallic thread.

purple

Lavenders and purples. Every other row is variegated thread.

pinks

Dark, medium and light pink with a few variegated and metallic threads tossed in, too.

pastel aqua purple green

This block is mainly meant to be pastels. It is Aqua, pale greens, light lavenders, and two variegated threads thrown in for fun.

new block started

The first green block is started; every other row will be a real pale green with a few other greens tossed in and a few variegated, too.

    >How do you construct the square? Id each circle individually made, then all joined, or do you have a method to continuously make them, joining as you go?
