Okay, two posts in one day. As my daughter Brigid would say, Woot!
I've crocheted a lot of afghans over the past few years. Here's one of my favorites. I am really proud of this one, because it was rather challenging for me at the time I made it.
I'm a member of a crochet mailing list, Crochet Partners. This Aran-style pattern, Hobnail Afghan, is from the Crochet Partners Library. I was wanting to make an Aran sweater for myself, and I thought it would be a good idea to make an Aran afghan first, to get the hang of the complicated stitches. I found the stitches weren't difficult once I got going, and this afghan was a lot of fun to make, but I never did make an Aran sweater.
I made my afghan with Red Heart Super Saver. The color is Aran. (Click on the photos for a larger view.)
