Scrap ‘Ghan

With fall nipping at our heels, I feel compelled to make sure we’ve got warm things for winter. I finished this scrap ‘ghan today. It’s a double strand afghan done in a shell pattern. I used whatever brushed acrylic I had left over from projects over the years. It’s neat, because I can look at this ‘ghan and see the yarn I used to make Lila a hat, or the yarn I used to make Gramma that shawl, or Tina that hat and scarf set….

Afghan for Gramma

Afghan for Gramma, originally uploaded by jezmynne.

Gramma asked me for a lapghan to keep her legs warm. I had a lovely fingering weight brushed acrylic that made a warm, soft afghan. I simply made a large square and then edged it with an edging for a damask table runner I found in my stash.

The Dafghan

Yaaay! The Dafghan! 120 six inch squares, 40% of which came from CL granny square exchange members. I edged each of the squares with a round of sc. I stitched them together with slip stitches through the back loops on the wrong side, which gave the front an interesting ridge effect. I finished it by edging it with 2 rounds of dc. D loves it. : )
