Seriously...A black Afghan? This is probably one of the prettiest ones I've made. All soft, sparkly and pretty! I used a Q-Hook with a combo of different yarns but the body is mostly made with 1 strand of Deborah Norville Serenity Chunky Sequin with another strand of Serenity Chunky plain. Eyelash yarn, boa & a few rows of ruffle yarn to give it some interest. The fringe is 11" made with about 6 different yarns. I wish if photographed better to show detail. Love it!
