Mrs. Ghan Afghan

Introducing the Mrs. Ghan Afghan





 $7.00  USD - FOR PATTERN ONLY

 CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE PATTERN: 

This afghan was designed with my grandmother in mind. The flower hexagons remind me of my childhood, walking through rows and rows of her beautiful flower garden. Every time my family would visit her, she had to show off her lovely garden.

Two classic crochet stitches are incorporated- the granny stitch and the ripple. Such timeless stitches are combined to create a vintage flair. The design is worked in sections with each added component shaping the overall piece. You will be pleasantly surprised and pleased with how the afghan takes shape.

The MCAL was hosted in my Ravelry Group, Melinda Miller Designs. You can refer to that forum to check out pattern discussion, helpful tips, unique innovations, and advice.

Bellis perennis - 6" Square

It's been so much fun designing for the Mystery Lapghan Crochet-a-Long, hosted by Cylinda of Crochet Memories and Sheri of The Country Willows.  

  This MCAL involves 30 crochet designers (including myself), who have teamed up to design 36 original 6” squares using worsted/aran weight yarn and a size US-I/9 (5.5mm) hook.

Three times a week – M/W/F - from 08/17 through 11/06, a new square is released. By the end of the CAL, you’ll have a 36-square lapghan to gift or keep! Prizes will be awarded.

This is my second and final offering for the MCAL. I hope you like it.
