Well after letting this sit on my couch for months on end again, I am almost finished. I am sewing the smaller heptagons on right now. I will be so happy when I am finally finished. :clap It's been 2 years of on/off work. I really need to learn how to concentrate. :D

You can get a kit (the pattern and the wool) of this afghan from Mary Maxim online.

I just purchased the pattern and I am so happy I found this blog, as soon as I can I will be reading all 196 pages! I skimmed for photos and they are all amazingly beautiful.

Went out last night and picked up some yarn and started the first octagon and after reading all the concerns over row 4+5 I was totally confused because I skipped no stitches at all and had 40 and 48 then realized I was crocheting in the spaces between DC instead of the top of the stitch, newbie crocheter and started with grannies if that explains why I did that, I looks good with my error and I am leaving it as is. Row 6 however needs to be worked in the top stitch to come out with the right count.

It's not difficult or anything, just time consuming. I'm forcing myself through it because it has potential to turn into one of those projects that hang out in the closet forever. Kind of like the Pam's Comfort Cables afghan. :lol

Hi, guys. I actually started this afghan myself just a little while ago. I'm just having trouble starting the first round on the second section. The wording on the pattern is confusing me terribly. I'm making it for a friend, though.

I'll do my best to remember to check my pattern when I get home this evening. Hopefully I can get it sorted out for you.

I'd love it if you could, thanks! ^^ I just can't figure out how to start it off. I can't see what the pattern-maker needed there.

Let's see if I can write this so it makes sense. So, you have sewed on the triangles from the end of the first section, right? The very first stitch of the second section is going to be place in between any two triangles that you just attached. Join your yarn there, make the stitch, then, place the remaining stitches between those triangles and start working across the triangles. When you get to the next section, you'll drop down in between triangles again and work around.

 

Make sense?

Oooooh. I think I get it. So you do the equivalent of 2 dcs in the space between the triangles, and then you do the slope up, then back down, and do 3 dcs between the next two. Thanks so much! This is my first time doing an intermediate level afghan, so I'm sorry if my question seemed self-evident.

Are you sure it was for this CAL? I've never heard of anyone on this site being dropped from any CAL whether they are active or not. Strange!
