FO | Fluted Ridge Gems

The gemtone version of the reversible Fluted Ridge Afghan is finished. The final end was woven in last evening, and it's been lightly steam blocked. That's it.

Today is frantic Friday as well as FO Friday, so I'll be brief.

Like most of my afghans, this was a fast and easy knit. It uses strip construction and was made with partial skeins solely from stash.

The fluted ridge stitch produces a fabric that's moderately stretchy both vertically and horizontally, and it looks the same on both sides which is a useful feature. The stitch is quite attractive in two colors, but for this particular afghan, I wanted to keep the spotlight on the rich gem tones and attractive texture.

Have a fabulous weekend one and all. Meanwhile, for those who are interested, here are the details:
