I finally finished my crochet sand stitch afghan. It’s larger than a throw and fits a twin size bed. I used Bernat® Home Bundle™, a bulky yarn that combines different colors and textures. I picked up the yarn at Joann’s, but Bernat® Blanket™ is a good substitute (I made my husband a blanket using this yarn). The yarn makes a super soft and cuddly afghan and works up quickly. It’s the perfect gift!
