Needlework: Crocheted Afghan

This afghan measures 48" x 54" when completed and uses 4 ply worsted weight yarn and size G crochet hook. It is worked in six strips and then these are stitched together along the long edges. It is a good project for taking along with you since the strips are not cumbersome to transport. The pattern, "Park Avenue", can be found in "Red Heart Afghans and Crochet Classics" on amazon.com and is considered "easy" and supposedly their "most requested pattern of all time".

I love your "little bit of everything" concept--that's what life is, after all!

Hope to see you on my blog sometime!

Is that considered a "mile a minute" afghan? It's very nice, love the neutral tones.

Boy, I sure could have used a nice warm afghan like that one this winter. Hopefully, we are beyond the really cold weather now.

Thanks for linking to the party. I would love to have you join me this Friday for "Funny Faux Pas Follies," as well. Get the details by clicking the party button in my sidebar.
