Thank you so much, I am so excited to start this afghan. It will make me feel very modern making it:hook

There's actually a RH color called Monet (what are the odds?)... very similar to the one Drew used. Initially, I thought he had used that one and hence the name. What a cool coincidence! :hook

Very nice! I have now added this to my To-Do List -- which is nine pages long. Sigh.

Drew, I have been admiring your afghan in the home decor section and wanting to figure out how to recreate it. Thank you so much for sharing---I am definitely making this one day.

Beautiful,, Does it say how much yarn for this, am I missing that,, :think Because different skeins have different colors... just an idea so I can buy enough of one color.

 

Thanks for the pattern

I am REALLY impressed! My father was a crocheter. Not obsessed like some of us are, but it helped his arthritis.

 

I really like the chain stitching you used to crochet it together.

Thanks Beverly! I'm glad you like it!!

 

My dad crocheted too! He made huge rag rugs for the floors all through our house. They were amazing!!

Love the colors of the multi colored yarn you used. It worked up very nice.

What a nice afghan! I like the way the varigated yarn comes out in it. I may create this as a queen sized afghan when I finish up my current WIPs.

I thought I might try this one as I have a hoard of variegated yarns. I have been collecting these for sometime time. Dont laugh, there is a bit of the obsessive compulsive in us all.. I collect cos I love the variegations, and then cant figure out what to do with it.... Today I will pull them out of the cupboard and see what I have. I will report back later on.

 

I am now toying with the idea of doing each square a different variegation. Do you think that would work or be too much? :eek

 

My first challenge is to work out the yarn thing, and then decide on a joiner colour..

I started on a sampler square last night and I do like the texture of the stitch. I will let you know how I go. :hook

Do you think If I colour selected some that this would work?

You mean if all the different yarns used had a common colour theme, like all bluey/lavender/purple, or all different shades of pink? I think that would look really pretty, cupcake.

I think it's a great idea. I would just make sure that all the different yarns are the same fiber content and weight. For example I wouldn't mix cotton yarns with acrylics because they will wear/shrink at different rates.

Thanks guys... That is the 8 ply acrylic pile you can see. I know not to mix the types of yarn. The cottons are in another cupboard :D

 

I have done 2 squares and they look good.

 

I think I will do a bluey browny greeny one to start with. I have three sons so blokey colours have higher use in our house. I will post an update if you are interested. I am undecided re a joiner colour.. maybe dark brown. I think I will do the squares first and then see what colour ties them together, so to speak.:manyheart

That's the pattern that led to my discovery of The Crochet Dude. It's been on my to do list ever since. And I will make one, as soon as I have the perfect yarn for it.

 

But, my ultimate goal is the Flying Afghan. I so love that one. :cat
