It wasn't that hard just a lot of repetition with all the wedges (240 or so) :lol

Thank you. The original pattern was in the Feb. issue of Crafts n' Things. I altered it for the different weights of yarn. Changed the gage so it would finish bigger, which meant changing the filler areas. Added more granny squares to the outer edges and a border around the edge. I really didn't change much! :blush.

 

That is wonderful!!! Where did you get the pattern????

What a fantastic piece of art. Kudos to you for figuring out how to alter it to make it more of what you wanted!! I love that you used different weights of yarn in addition to different colors.

This crochet version of the of the old Double Wedding Ring quilt really excited me. The different textures and weights of the yarns I chose made it a bit of a fun challenge. The original pattern was for only one weight of yarn, so I created versions for bulky to lite DK yarns. The instructions are available to anyone who wants them.
