My son asked for an Afghan blanket. Here it is so far …
How fun! Are you trying to decide which pattern to work with, or will you piece all of the swatches together?
No, this is a “sampler”, so every square should be different (although I’ve doubled up on some to make it bigger)
That’s wonderful. I’m sure he will treasure it.
So cool. Wish I had the patience to sew, knit or crochet…but I don’t. Blessings to you!
That’s turning out great!
Looks like a lot of work! Such interesting patterns!
Whao.. you are certainly talented to know how to knit like that..he is really blessed to have such a nice blanket.
very beautiful….you are so talented
Is that crochet or knitted?
I have attempted in the past to make myself an afghan blankie but to no avail. Your squares are lovely! Are they your own pattern?
They are crocheted. Not my own pattern – I used Sampler Afghan by Marianne Forrestal (a free pattern on Ravelry)
That is really amazing. My great-grandmother made my grandmother, great uncle, dad, and both of my aunts an afghan throughout their lives and everyone still has them and treasure them deeply; even more-so after my great-grandmother passed. And because my grandmother and I are two of the most open people when it comes to talking about things that you shouldn’t necessarily talk about, or don’t want to talk about, we have already discussed that I would like the afghan that her mother made her after she passes. All of this to say that I was so thrilled to see your post because making your loved ones afghans is such an amazing way to show someone you love them and they will always have it, and maybe even pass it down to their children, and then down to theirs, which is happening in my family.
I hope it will get passed down. My three year old daughter has a patchwork quilt I made her for her second birthday, but she has now requested a crocheted one too. I will make each of my three children a crocheted quilt of their own. I may start on some now for presents too
Love all the patterns! 🙂
Looks like it’s off to a great start!
Oh it’s going to be so warm and cozy!
wonderful patterns, they will come in handy!
