Camouflage Star Afghan is Complete

Camouflage Star Afghan

Close up to show stripe and edge detail.
I saw a little star pattern on Lion Brand's website.  Click HERE to see it.  The end result was an afghan which looks much like my Pink Star afghan which I completed earlier this year (click HERE to the Pink Star).  The patterns I used for both afghans are very similar, if not identical.  If I make this pattern again, I will start adding contrasting stripes nearer to the center of the afghan.  Having lots of strips really brings out the awesome star design.  In this blanket I used Bernat "Camouflage" yarn, some Lion Brand "Fun" yarn, and also some Plymouth DK "Dreambaby" yarn.  I was happy to find two different blue yarns which went so well with the bright blue in the camouflage yarn.  I call this shade of blue "Cookie Monster" blue... do you agree?

I've mentioned in previous posts that I am not sure what in nature this yarn would camouflage.  Whatever the case may be, it's very nice acrylic yarn.  After looking at this yarn for so long while crocheting this project, I finally realized WHAT this yarn camouflages!  Scroll down and you will see!  I think Cookie Monster will approve.  

Do you see the similarity?

This blanket will go The Denver Children's Hospital in Denver, Colorado.  I hope some boy will like it!
