The afghan itself is rather plain, but that border really knocks it out of the park! Im thinking that instead of an afghan, you could work up a scarf and add that lovely edge to that. Or how about a triangle scarf, very plain, and edged with this lacy trim? Thanks for posting this! I can think of all sorts of ways to use it.
