Mondrian Afghan by RainbowWish Mondrian Afghan by RainbowWish
Afghan crochet in homage to one of my favorite modern artists, Piet Mondrian. I kept this one, the first afghan I've made for myself that I've actually kept. It's huge too, the size of a double bed. I LOVE it <3 :D

I need this in my house! Incredible!
I've submitted it to my De Stijl group. I'd appreciate it if you'd accept the offer. :)
Good work!

This is where I got the crazy and semi original idea of using squares in a manner similar to this in modern art!
Thank you, Piet Mondrian!

Wow. This is gorgeous.
It looks just like Mondrian's paintings - but with yarn!! I'm glad you kept it too - it would be too pretty to give away! I like how the rows go in different directions too.

What kind of yarn do you use? It looks like a larger weight then I'm used to seeing.

Its worsted weight, pretty much standard but slightly heavier because I bought the economy size, haha!

Glad you liked it! I adore this one :D

Fantastic! Did you crochet all the colour blocks seperately and join them together with the black?

in some places I did and in others it was a larger block with black and another color.

Glad you like :D
