Bread And Butter

The Name

Bread And Butter by The Newbeats

This was the closest I was able to associate with my music library, after searching yellow, plaid, gingham, square, checkers and finally butter.

The Afghan

Dimensions: 30 x 33 inches

This is my first plaid/gingham attempt. Being the king of scraps, I was had plenty of yellow scraps to work with. And because I like a challenge, even it is a coincidence, I am digging the gradients in this design: midtone: hue shift and undertone: light to dark – a gradi-plaid, ginghad, plaham?

The Yarn

Super Yarn Mart! Odd Balls

Color: Lemon Meringue*
Content: 100% miscellaneous odd lots of undetemined fiber content

Bucilla softex

Color: 26 [Butterscotch*]
Content: 100% Dupont Orlon Acrylic Fibre

All yarns were worsted/aran weights. I did not keep good track of the unlabeled yarns, as this was a learning project. All colors fall within the yellow-orange spectrum, including some self-named colors: Buttercup* and Gold.*

Below is the palette I worked from, incorporating lightest shades first.
