Bavarian crochet afghan

Recommended Posts

I finally got my Bavarian crochet afghan done for our queen size bed.  I used shades of blue with white so I could use up some of my stash of yarn.  So when I ran out of one colour I added in another so that is why it looks the way it does.  I am quite happy with how it turned out and it will keep dh and I nice and warm this winter.post-17341-0-15875500-1372954847_thumb.jpgpost-17341-0-15875500-1372954847_thumb.jpgpost-17341-0-75062700-1372954866_thumb.jpg

Yours is beautiful. I bet it's heavy. what size hook did you use??

 I used a size 6mm hook.  It is quite heavy so will be used during the winter here.

I started making it on Jan. 12th of this year so it took me just under six months to do and I wasn't working on it every day.  I would work a little at a time since I have cervical spondylosis and crocheting makes the pain worse if I do it for a long time.  I was thinking that this may be the last crochet item I do because of the CS but I figure if I just crochet a little at a time I can keep on doing it.

Mary, this is beautiful, it should keep you snuggly warm for many winters!

 

I hope you are feeling better now that summer is here and have found a pain clinic to work on your health problems, Don't give up, trust me, they can do some amazing things that will bring you surprising relief.

 

I wish you well...

Very pretty, love the colours.  Even doing a small baby sized one of these sends me crazy well done for the patience and time it took to do this one :)
