I have done some more work on it but I ran out of that pink, and I dont think I can get any more because it was an older skein of yarn I had recieved in a swap.  How ever I may do blue flowers to go with it.  I got some more work done on it and will be posting pics later today sometime.

I saw a purple suede recliner on Gumtree once. It was only $20, but I would have had to drive for three hours to go and pick it up. I'd have been up for that, but at the time we didn't have a car that it would fit in.  Sad I make up for it by dyeing my hair bright purple instead.

Well done on the flat circle! Smiley

For a purple recliner, I would had been asking everybody in town that had a truck to help me get it LOL

On a side note, the reason one end looks a little bigger than the other is because I had lost my crochet hook that I was using and I couldnt remember which one I had used so I had to improvise and change to another hook.  LOL

This is an afghan that I made with a random pattern I came up with from the top of my head.  Not sure if it was already done, or if I had seen it before, so Im not saying its my very own pattern, but the idea of the pattern came to me and I decided to make it.  Anyhow, here's the easter afghan that I made!



But basically, it's done like this -

Chain how ever wide you want it to be but in multiples of 3.

for the first row, all double crochet stitches.

for the 2nd row, do 3 double crochet stitches, chain 3, skip the next 3 double crochet stitches, then do 3 double crochet stitches, and repeat that all the way to the end.  

Then keep repeating rows 1 and 2 over and over, ending with a solid row at the end, and add your border and that's how you do it!

A tip on keeping the blanket straight and not lomp sided, is on every row, chain 3 then skip the first stitch, and do your other 2 double crochet's.  I have found that method the best way to keep your blankets from getting lompsided when working with a row instead of piecing it together like for a granny square.  This stands true for any time you do rows no matter what pattern you use.
