In the Rainbow Waves Afghan that I am working on. It’s a free pattern by Red Heart.
The pattern calls for using only back loops. After doing the Ocean Waves Afghan, I know many people exclaimed their distaste for back loops.
Without expressing bias, I have to admit… doing the back loops on the ocean waves was a bit slow. I think because these stitches are not increasing or decreasing, I don’t find them much of an issue on this afghan.
After reading some initial comments about the look of my sample. People were wondering what the afghan would look like if there was no back loops.
So here we have the project. On the right of the photo is the pattern using the back loops. Starting from the last pink to the left of the photo is the same pattern using regular stitches.
So what do you think. Would you back loop it as per the pattern or do you like it as regular stitches without a raised texture look?
I know I prefer. Leave me a comment below sharing your thoughts.
