6 patterns from 63 Easy-To-Crochet Stitches Heirloom Afghan - Pinks

| No Comments


Size: (Unknown) (donated in December 2002 to the convalescent home where my grandfather stayed; estimate 35 inches x 45 inches)
Colors: Rose, Pink, Light Pink
Pattern: 6 patterns make up this lap blanket: (1-light pink) #51 Star Stitch, (2-light pink) #55 Parallel Post Stitch, (3-pink) #27 Block and Offset Shell Stitch, (4-pink) #62 Basket Weave, (5-rose) #12 Open Ridge Stitch (which I modified to not have a ridge), (6-rose) #32 Aligned Cable Stitch
Book: 63 Easy-To-Crochet Pattern Stitches Combine To Make An Heirloom Afghan - Leaflet 555 - Designs by Darla Sims - Copyright 1987 - Leisure Arts
Date: November 2002

The colors are a little off: they are light pink, medium pink, and a deep rose.

The patterns for this lap blanket are from a book of 63 crochet patterns. If you follow the directions properly to get an accurate gauge, the squares should all be the same size. I had some problems with gauge so one of the squares is loose and stretchy, and other squares were too small so I had to add a single crocheted border of 1-3 rows around those to make them an appropriate size. If I had used the same pattern for each square, each would have been the same size. Ah, well, live and learn.
