I crocheted this using Lion Brand's Ocean Waves Baby Afghan pattern but with my own little twists to it. It's a little larger than the original pattern and I used Jiffy instead of Cotton-Ease. So my afghan is not really "ocean waves." I thought it would be the perfect valentine's day gift for my newborn cousin Violet. It worked up very quickly using Jiffy and its extremely soft. It worked up in only a few short days, but used a little more yarn that I had expected. It took a little more than 2 balls of 3 colors to make the afghan when I'd only expected to use 2 or less. I'd run out of yarn to do the border! I wanted the border shells to be red, but I did not want to run to the craft store twice in one day to pick up more yarn, so I did pink shells instead.
