Now that my children and grandchildren are all grown up and prefer to wear the latest styles (not Grammie’s crocheted stuff), I decided to start making afghans for less fortunate children. I have tons of colourful craft cotton, which never gets fuzzy or worn-looking and can take a real beating. Perfect for the little ones to curl up in. I’ve made three, so far, and have a fourth on on the go and a fifth one planned. I love to be busy, especially when I’m just sitting on the sofa watching television. Anyway, blah, blah, blah…here are my first three afghans. Feel inspired?
This is a close-up of one that I crocheted as a simple rectangle. To keep it interesting, I used a variety of simple stitches, including single, half-double and double crochet.
Here’s the second one, which I made from 12 simple granny squares. I crocheted them together with white yarn and added a simple border. Well, Cookie seems to like it!
Here’s the third one, just one big granny square with lots of bright colours.
Happy crafting, happy crocheting, happy everything!
