[ATTACH]32577[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]32578[/ATTACH] [ATTACH]32579[/ATTACH]

Size - 4 1/2 ft x 6 ft

Materials - 2 colors WW yarn - 5-7 pounds, 10 mm/N hook

Gauge - Each strip is 7 blocks of color long.

10" across = 17dc

10" up&down = 13 rows

 

NOTES: Afghan is made holding 2 strands of yarn together

Afghan is made of 5 strips whipstitched together with a border crocheted around it.

- You can make the afghan larger/smaller by adjusting the size of the squares.

 

Directions -

 

Strip 1 - make 3

ch 19, dc in 4th ch from hook,

Rows 1 - 13 - 2 strands blue dc across - (17dc)

Rows 14 - 26 - 1 strand blue, 1 strand orange - dc across

continue alternating colors until strip measures 7 colors blocks long. tie off.

 

Strip 2 - make 2

Block 1 - varigated

Block 2 - orange

continue alternating colors until strip measures 7 colors blocks long. tie off.

 

Joining - Whipstitch strips together.

- It may be simpler to sc a round around the strip prior to sewing strips.

- If you tie the corners of the blocks together before you begin stitching it will help keep the rows in line)

-Refer to pic for color placement.

 

Border -

Round1 - in blue - hdc in each st on top and bottom.

2hdc in each st along the sides. (The dc is a tall stitch so it takes 2 stitches in each for the border)

Corner shell - hdc,ch1, hdc in each corner

R 2 - in white - *V-st (dc,ch1,dc), skip next 2 stiches* repeat around entire afghan.

Corners - Vst, ch1, Vst

R 3-4 - in blue - dc in each st around

Corners - dc,ch1,dc

R 5 - reverse sc (crabstitch) around

or sc around depending on skill level

Alternate Joining Method

For those of you who just cannot stand the thought of whipstitching this together busy-bee-lmt posted a picture TUT on how to attach the strips as you go. It's image intensive and clearly detailed. You'll need to decide before you begin your 2nd strip if you want to use this joining method. Post 1835 http://www.crochetville.org/forum/showpost.php?p=2015994&postcount=1835

 

(Big huge thank you to joules for finding this post!)

People have continued to post pics in the thread after post 1773. I have chosen to not continue linking to these posts - it's getting to be a long list. Please feel free to continue browsing thru this thread to see more pictures.

 

 

Can I ask a question please? It says 5-7 pounds of yarn, how much of each color do you need? Do you need more of one color than the other or about the same of each?

You're going to need slightly more of the color that's on the outside corners.

 

One of the reasons that the amount of yarn is so vague is that it's uniquely personal to the gauge and tension of the person making it. From the standard pattern people have used anywhere from 5 - 7 pounds.

 

When I make a flannelghan I'll get 3 pounds of each color. That's not going to help someone that crochets looser than I do and needs the full 7 pounds.

 

Out of this entire thread - I don't think anyone's actually written down exactly what they've used.

Okay mine is almost done, and I have a working camera, so I'm going to get shots of it, it's not done, due to the boy deploying I didn't get work on it much, I was spending time with him. Now he's gone and, well crochet, it's my friend, a week in and I didn't even notice that much time had passed because I've been working on this blanket. So later I'll post pictures, :clap. Once I figure out how...to post...pictures. Grr. Lol

:hook happy hooking!

I just wanted to get some opinions. Is Caron One Pound soft enough for a flannelghan? And also, how many pound skeins would it take to do up this project?

Love the Flannelghans! I really want to make a red & black one. It is (and has been for a while) on my list of projects I want to do! Never enough time!

 

But I have saved your pattern and thank you very much for sharing! You need to think about putting out a book!

I'm experimenting with the pattern. I just got to the 2nd block (red n black) and I'm wondering something. Can I just cut one of the reds and attach the black and continue with one of the reds from before? Or is it better to attach 2 new strands completely to make it look more like a defined/divided block?

I love your colors!!! I hadn't even thought of doing this in my favorite color -- purple! Now I think that will be my choice too! The Hyacinth is a light enough shade of purple it really stand out on the black well!

I always carry the one color. It makes no difference at all in how it looks. It just gives you an extra 2 ends to weave in at the end.

 

Thank you for that. I went ahead and just continued with one of the red strands. I think it'll be okay. Looks like I'll be doing one after all. I just hope I have the right hook lol. I know I had a plastic N and P and I used the smaller white one, but they aren't marked. So far so good!

 

I can't wait to see more flannelghans.

I have no idea. Did you make 5 or 7 blocks and are the blocks 10 or 12 inch squares?

 

I followed the pattern....7 blocks of 12 rows per strip :think right?? I think I'll do only8 or 10 rows per block next time, oh yes there will be a next time.... the photo looks funny, I need to add a few more strips.

I see the reason. You're squares are rectangles instead of squares. It's a basic pattern but it really needs to be worked to your own gauge. I would finish it the way it is - I think it looks really good.

 

For the next one only do as many rows as you need to to make each color block square.

Hello all,

 

I don't want to sound rude.... But on the alternative joining method where you slip stitch as you work on the second panel, does it have a nice defined line where the two meet? I can't tell in the pics. I'm really intrigued by this method! Thanks so much for posting the link.
