Father's Day CAL


If you haven’t joined my Facebook group yet – NOW is a good time to do so. Group members have voted on what project they want to work up for Father’s Day. By a landslide vote, the Mr. Ghan Afghan won. And we get a two thumbs up!!!

This Mr. Ghan Afghan is a full size masculine afghan. It is very richly textured and is worked and assembled in sections. The file is quite large, consisting of 53 pages. I suggest that you look at page 2 for the Table of Contents and then choose which pages you’d like to print.

Complete pattern includes:
1.   Tutorial
2.   All 12 Rectangle Patterns
3.   Borders & Joining Method
4.   Photos
5.   Mr. Ghan Map

What is the Mr. Ghan Map? Well – each rectangle component is a different textured pattern, named after a “guy thing.” The map guides you through each texture with some trivia associated with it. Your guy (and you) will enjoy how the entire afghan represents all the things he loves. 

Browse through all the lovely Ravelry projects and see how others have worked this afghan. There are some very stunning projects – some are even worked in feminine colors. That’s the beauty of this design. It was intended for the guy, but can also be feminized. It’s very versatile and color friendly. Make it your own with your color choice. 

Here are the stats:

FINISHED AFGHAN SIZE: 53” X 71”

MATERIALS:
Worsted Weight Yarn - 3 Colors
Crochet Hk size I / 5.5 mm
Tapestry Needle
Stitch Markers

COLORS:
Color A: Main, light color to showcase textured stitches. (2,570 yds.)
Color B: Complementary, any shade. (940 yds.)
Color C: Complementary, any shade. (800 yds.)

Full price of this pattern is $4.98, but I’m offering it FREE for this special Father’s Day CAL. Just enter code – mrghanfree – when purchasing. This special promotion is good through June 17, 2018 end of day, CST.
Check out here: Mr. Ghan Afghan Pattern.

For those of you who voted for the All Tied Up Afghan – I haven’t forgotten you! Although your vote did not win for the CAL project, I am still offering this second choice at a considerable discount. Full price is $4.98 – but use coupon code – alltiedup – to get it for half price. This special promotion is also good through June 17, 2018 end of day, CST.
