Look What I Won On Ebay

Recommended Posts

This pattern looks very much like the snowflake potholder link posted just minutes before your post.

 

Oh my! You're right! I think it's the same!

I love, love, love yellow and blue together. What a wonderful find and to have good workmanship of the completed items is awesome. I like the idea of a bedspread and matching pillows. Please post pics when you finish something!

I think I'm going to join the squares this way. The joining yarn is actually navy blue, a little lighter than it appears in the picture.

I love the look of these squares. I am attempting to make an afghan using this pattern. I have 20 or so "snowflakes" made and have 4 of the squares completed.

These seem to work up pretty fast!!

 

Thanks for the idea, my 5yo DD cant wait until I am done her new "flower" blanket. (She thinks the snowflakes are flowers)

how are you doing the joining? I love the way it looks, but I am someone who has to have instructions...can't just wing it! Did you use a pattern or come up with it yourself? Can't wait to see the finished afghan...it will be beautiful!

Sorry I should have added this to my other post. Here is the link to the pattern I am using http://www.geocities.com/Heartland/Ranch/4054/snowflakeph.htm

I am only doing 1 like a normal afghan square (not double thick) and then single crocheting around the outside. I havent decided the joining method I will be using yet, but thinking of using the Flat Braid method shown here http://hometown.aol.com/lffunt/flatbraid.htm

 

Any other questions let me know. I fell in love with the look of these squares as soon as I saw them and they are fast and easy to make.

That's looking great! Yes, it does work up quickly.

The joining method I'm using is actually one I learned from another afghan.

BarbaraJean I can't wait to see your finished products. Blue and yellow look great together.

 

Beginner8 I've been looking for something to make with those similar colors for my sister and yours is just beautiful. I'm sure your dd will love it flowers or not! ;)

They are lovely! But if you think 10 sq. X 7 sq. (70" X 49") is too big, make a smaller afghan. 9 sq. X 6 sq. (63" X 42") or 8 sq. X 6 sq. (56" X 42") are good sizes. Extra squares can be made into matching pillows. 7 or 8 squares in a line with a border make great scarves. I hope this helps (you can always send some my way :lol). Again great find.

Thanks for the information! I think that I'll make 2 twin size covers to put on the 2 twin beds in our camper. The pillows are a good idea too.
