using a free pattern called the Superhero Dreamcatcher Afghan, which, if I understand correctly, was originally written up by Wendy Gamble-Hogsten as the Baby's Round Ripple Afghan and later on Spidey-fied by Gail E. of Stitch 'n Frog Crochet. (Thank you ladies for your generosity in making your pattern and creativity available for everyone to enjoy!)
I used up a little less than 5 balls of Cannon Solid crochet thread -- 2-point-something for the blue and 2 balls flat for the maroon. It was my first time changing colors within a single work and I think I may have been bitten by the colorwork bug. Thinking about which color to add in next kept me on my toes the whole time, and it's a bit embarrassing to say how much frogging went on before I settled on the very simple striping scheme that you see above.
Here's an infinitely cuter photo:
Small side note: My baby love was sleeping particularly soundly when I took that photo: he'd missed his nap earlier in the day thanks to a bit of sugar rush from eating cupcake icing.
My oh my, isn't he just a dream?
