  1. How about a ripple blanket in shades of blue and blue-ish green, then appliqueing the little pirate ship(s). Some other things to add might be a whale, a sea turtle, a sea gull, etc.
  2. This is click bait. You can see the pattern on the Stylecraft web site.
  3. I found this picture on Pinterest. The link is no good, but if the picture is the right one maybe you can use it as a guide. https://www.pinterest.com/pin/AXnJ6N-kkUlKW9d3nvlGf4dFRzKj_vlmijLgzN1a87e5eecMnARjd8I/
  4. This one looks a lot like it, and it was available in a magazine so you should be able to find a back issue. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/wedding-rings-blanket
  5. Annie Potter Presents also has several pattern books http://www.anniepotterpresents.com/baby-doll-cloths-toys.html
  6. Here is a really cute set of dresses by Delsie Rhoades, originally published by ASN and now sold by the designer herself. Sizes 2-6 and an extra bonus - matching dresses for 18" girl dolls! I've always loved this pattern set but don't have any girls to make them for. http://delsiescrochet.com/8/Dresses_for_Dolly__Me.html The picture didn't want to come up but if you click on Babies & Children to the left, you should be able to see a picture. There's also one on eBay for $5.95 including shipping.
  7. Crocodile stitch has a very "pineapple" look. Here's one, but it's not free. https://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/pineapple-trivet
  8. There's one on The Whoot http://thewhoot.com.au/whoot-news/crafty-corner/crochet-peppermint-swirl-afghan?omhide=true&utm_source=The+WHOot+Daily+Mail&utm_campaign=06a685023d-RSS_Feed_v4_custom&utm_medium=email&utm_term=0_bb6c322de2-06a685023d-60931485 The pattern is on the page, but I also think it might be found free on the Red Heart site. But it might be a little different, so here's the link anyway. http://www.redheart.com/free-patterns/peppermint-throw-and-pillow
  9. Why not make the squares that are already done into the "center of attention"? Depending on how many are already made, you could add a row of sc in a contrasting color, something "manly" 'cause you know how guys are. Sew them together to make a square or rectangle for the center of the afghan, then just go around and around the afghan in the stitch and color(s) of your choice until it's a good size for him. That way he will know that the squares are from his mother, instead of mixed in with yours. You and your grandmother will each have a part in the afghan, but the parts will be sort of separate for the different times that they were done.
  10. Just a quick note on marypat's reply, I'm "countryyarns.com" and I don't sell ebooks or epatterns. Those are real physical books. Selling them as ebooks would be illegal for me! Just a simple mistake on MaryPat's part.
  11. Here it is, shown on Ravelry http://www.ravelry.com/patterns/library/triple-treat-afghan
  12. This looks a whole lot like the designs that the South American yarn/thread company Circulo puts out. I've seen videos but since the language is Portuguese I don't understand. I've seen whole magazine issues with these bath sets; they are very popular in Spanish/Portuguese speaking countries. Here is a google search that I just did, and you will see what I mean. Maybe one of these will lead back to something very similar. https://www.google.com/search?q=portuguese+crochet+bath+set&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwi2yKOsvqPPAhWBdiYKHQb0AbEQ_AUICSgC&biw=1536&bih=731
  13. I think it's the material used that makes it look unusual. Possibly it's just a plain dc or hdc, but it looks like a rattail or narrow heavy ribbon is used. That would make the stitches look different.
  14. How about this one? I found it in an Etsy link, but I don't think it's still there. It is shown with a white background, but I seem to recall that they also showed it with a black background. This was in a vintage McCall's afghan magazine, but the seller was selling the pattern as a pdf. Probably not legit to do that, but if I can't see it I can't say. https://img0.etsystatic.com/022/2/6275627/il_214x170.500787194_mo0g.jpg
  15. Do you know what it is going to be? It looks like a "bruges" crochet stem, maybe with a leaf? Aha, turn it upside down and it could be a bikini strap and bra cup! Hey, it _could_ be........
