Pinterest inspiration ~ Rainbow Waves Afghan

Good morning!

I thought I'd share another Pinterest Inspiration project with you today!

A while ago I came across this lovely pin:

I love the serenity and color of this pretty!

I knew immediately that I wanted to try making an afghan that had the same look to it.

And here's my take:

I worked the afghan in a simple shell stitch, to make the waves, changing colors every four rows.

Obviously the waves aren't quite as dynamic as the ones in the original, but I think that it still gives the same general feel.

I did a simple single crochet border around the whole afghan, which I think gives it a clean look, and doesn't take attention away from the ripples of color.

What do you think?
