So, I finished a special project I started several weeks ago. This was a birthday gift. I wanted to make something special for my son that he would have forever.
I have seen a lot of afghans come and go. They do wear out! But, I have yet to see one of these babies wear out. I have been making them for about 6 years maybe? They are in constant use. Easy care, just toss in the washer and dryer! (Just be careful not to bleach!)
Every now and then I just get the urge to whip one up. Some are small enough to use as chair ‘pads’. They rarely get larger than 3 feet across though, because I just run out of umph! I most always use cotton yarn. Sometimes more than one strand.
So, here are some more pics of the new rug.
I used three strands of yarn. (This was hard work!) Two were constant, dark brown. The third strand was scrap yarns. I just started another color when one ran out.
So, when I got to the end of my scrap yarn I only had two working balls of brown. I decided to use a reverse single crochet stitch around with two strands of brown to finish.
If anyone is interested, I might be willing to try a picture tutorial of this super easy pattern.
Now, time to move to the kitchen and make a big batch of my World Famous Spaghetti to celebrate Son’s birthday!
