I started this afghan in a previous lifetime and took at least a century to complete it, but finally, finally it is finished (except for fringe, which the recipient chose to forego as she feared her cats would chew it and urp). Now I can get on with the rest of my life.
This afghan's proper title is "Ivory Elegance" from A Year of Afghans Book 5 (Leisure Arts). I used Caron worsted weight acrylic yarn in the one pound skeins (four of them!), color Taupe 511.
- What made this afghan
- The rows ran the length of the afghan, so undoing mistakes frequently meant undoing a lot.
- The stitches used were single crochet, double crochet, half-double crochet, and triple crochet.
- The chevrons were created by double crocheting in front of or behind a triple crochet, a hand-cramping manuever if ever there was one.
And yet, I am contemplating creating a belt from this very design. I guess I've grown accustomed to its face.
