I hand knitted this beautiful afghan using size 11 circular knitting needles and red heart acrylic yarn. Aran is off white or ecru in color. This is a knitted diagonal stripe pattern and the yarn is doubled through out. This afghan measures 50" in width and 76" in length. This afghan may be machine washed in the gentle cycle and tumbled dry on low heat. This afghan can be used on a bed, sofa or lounge chair. This is pictured on a queen size bed. Washing instructions are included.
