This is an afghan that I made for a couple of friends  

who love  whales and dolphins. The afghan is large   

enough  to cover a double size bed.                               










This is a smaller lapghan that I made based on the other

dolphin pattern. I really loved how the border turned out.

It made the whole project pop. I adapted the border from

an afghan that was completely done in rows just like this

border.
