Tidal Flow Afghan



This is the second full adult sized afghan I've made so far. The first one was given away before I could take pictures :( . But now I'm learning and improving. I take pictures immediately after completing the projects. Yes sometimes even before blocking. As in this case....as I'm sure you'll note . This one is already in it's new home and I couldn't post the pictures before my friend received it .
This pattern is called Tidal flow and that's all I know of it. I had seen it long back and made a few swatches of it with different colours. I just followed the pattern from my swatch and made the Afghan.If anybody happens to know the source of this pattern, please let me know . I'd love to credit the designer . It's alovely pattern and fun to work and surprisingly quick too.
My son call it the sun and sea afghan because of the colours. I think it's an apt name , it does remind me of the beach in summer. We have a lot of summer days spent on the beaches. If you are interested in the close up of the pattern stitch , here you are :



And if you are wondering about my previous post about the Ring Cushion - Well, it got there in time . I delivered it personally , my own sweet self!! I had promised to get it delivered on time ...and sooo I'm glad I could!!

Wonderful, Yasmin! The colors are perfect for the design - wavy and summery ;)

Thank you,Mimi. I love this pattern. I even kept the same colours - no change at all!

I'm glad to hear that the cushion arrived on time. I hope your friend appreciates all the effort you went to. Great afghan too. Your son is right about the colours, very summery.

Thankyou Caroline and Preeti. It feels great to have more FOs. I'm getting a phobia of all mu UFOs lately!!
