|New afghan sample|
While the original design was made with Aunt Lydia's Denim (which is now discontinued), any worsted weight yarn (cotton or acrylic) will work. The new sample is actually made with Paton's Beehive Baby Sport Yarn to make a finer/softer weave.
The original afghan was made with worsted weight yarn and measured 42" x 55".

This new sample followed the exact pattern, only using a sport weight yarn the measurements were smaller. Finished design was 34" x 49". It is the perfect size for a young child.
