It’s fitting that a retro afghan should be made from ‘retro’ yarns, right? I used an entire seven-ounce skein of Meadowbrook cream, an unfamiliar brand, as well as the last three ounces I had of Famous Makers’ Odd Lots dark brown. DH says with a wonderful name like ‘Famous Makers’ you know it’s got to be good yarn! lol.
The dark olive, excuse me, but in this case I think we should call it ‘avocado’, a much newer yarn by Vanna’s Choice, fits into this vintage color scheme so well, no one would suspect that it isn’t a vintage yarn unless they felt how much softer and fluffier it is. Acrylic yarns have certainly improved over the years!
Did you happen to notice the five single rows of lighter green? I was able to use up two teeny-tiny scrap balls. Yay Me. lol..
