Cathedral Window-CAL


Recommended Posts

It seems diamond and I had the same idea today-a Cathedral Window Afghan CAL.

 

I have some space and can host it if anyone's interested, I've started this afghan but it will go slow so that maybe I won't have to frog it too much.

 

I even made a button:

It's hosted at ImageShack so if some of you don't have webspace to host images you can link to it with no problems.

 

Email or PM me for any other details.

I purchased the patern from Annie's and the yarn from Red Heart.   I started the pattern last week and I feel the patern instructions are somewhat lacking.    Is anyone else still making this pattern?

Where can I find the pattern?

 

 

I can't see the button so can you email it to me directly? (This computer is wiggging out on me and i can't see images for some reason...even on my own website lately) so I apologize for the problem.

Oh, I'm mad crazy nuts about that pattern, but I don't know if I could do it :eek and even if I did think I could try it (like I have time! LOL) I don't know where to find the pattern either...but I can't wait to see what you guys do! That is I think the most beautiful afghan I've ever seen.

Oh, I would love to make what is one of the most gorgeous afghans I've ever seen. BUT I don't have the pattern either. In all my huge stash of crochet magazines, leaflets, and booklets, this is one pattern that I do not own.

 

Would love the see pictures of the work in progress though.

I'm so in on this. As I thought I can't get decent yarn for it locally so I'll be ordering either tonight or tomorrow and starting it as soon as I get my yarn in. Question: Has anyone used TLC Essentials yarn, and were they happy with it? I'm looking at that and considering it, but since I can't find it locally to give it the touch test I'm a little hesitant to order it blind -- particularly for something this special!

 

Diamond, I know you said you were using Simply Soft; what type of yarn are you using, Chatty?

I have started it 3 times, frogged it once. I don't have much time, so it is very slow going. I have finally gotten past the hexagon stage and am now doing the "rounds". Not sure what you would call them. I have all my yarn, and so I feel like I have to be committed to the project, or just simply be committed!!! :eek

Did someone mention where to get this pattern? Did I just miss it? I'd love to make this. :cheer Drew.. yours is simply gorgeous:cheer

 

The leaflet was published by Annie's Attic in 1996, and I believe is out of print. It's called Award-Winning Afghans, leaflet #878301. I've heard it is available on eBay from time to time.

 

Thanks for the kudos! I'm so glad you like it!! :fame

This is one of the most beautiful patterns I have ever seen! Wow, it sure looks like it takes a lot of concentration!

 

Could you use other colors rather than variegated?

When it comes to crochet, there are no rules against changing colors of a pattern. Do whatever colors you like.

It's really an amazing afghan and it would be hard for it not to be gorgeous in any color! I would love to attempt this but realistically, what are my chances of finding the pattern since its out of print?

Thanks for the cheerleading Drew :D

 

I'll get to work on a site to host pics in the next day or so, don't think we'll need it anytime soon but it gives me an excuse to play with HTML :wink

 

In the mean time just link back to this thread with the button, I'll put it on my blog later, I was gone all afternoon and I'm pooped right now, it's also almost bedtime for this old hooker :wink

 

Again, thanks for the interest, I know it'll be a loooooooooooooooong CAL :D

 

Good luck ladies, I've got the center octagon done and am working on the pentagons and triangles that go around it.
