Hi everyone. Hope your weekend was great. We had the most awesome weekend. Our oldest grandson was visiting and we spent the weekend with him and his sisters. It was one of those rare times when they were all able to be home at the same time. We had so much fun cooking, eating, laughing and playing. I love those times but I am ready to get back to "normal". We have not had that since before Thanksgiving.
With the chilly temps we are all experiencing I thought I would share my most recent crochet afghan with you. Maybe the thought will keep you warm. This one I made for Miss "A".
Of course, it's a "Frozen" inspired afghan for her "Frozen" themed room. She is still enamored with the "Frozen" movie. Her room is done mostly in shades of purple with some touches of baby blue and of course, white. She has all sorts of snowflakes and "Frozen" wall decor so it was obvious she needed a snowflake afghan. Right?
When perusing Pinterest I found a Beginner's Round Ripple Crochet Afghan pattern and knew that it would be perfect for this project. This particular pattern was done by "Smooth Fox Crochet and Knit" and is free for your personal use. It is a very easy pattern to follow. Done in double crochet stitches it works up very quickly. I had no problems at all with the instructions.
I used an "I" crochet hook to make mine and my favorite yarn - Hobby Lobby's "I Love That Yarn". I used two 8oz. skeins of each soft blue, orchid, and white. The only change I made was to add a Picot edging around it to make it more "ruffly" and snowflake looking. I also did not follow how she did her color changes but did mine more randomly.
This is the first time I have done a round afghan and found it to be quite simple to do.
I love how it turned out - it looks great in Miss "A's" room with her other "Frozen" decor. And, of course, it's Miss "A's" favorite now.
I really have to get started on putting my house back together now. I have all the decorations put away but alas, our house is quite bare. Hopefully, I will get to that this week. However it has turned quite chilly for the South and I have been spending these last couple of days by the fire crocheting another afghan. What have you been up to? I love to hear from you so tell me about it in the comments below.
I will be linking up to the parties listed on the Where I Party page. Please go by and visit them - I am sure you will find a lot of great inspiration and creativeness.
