Right! Making them all the same color forms the daisy pattern. I only did different colors so the stitches could be seen.

Although, I sure if you really wanted to you could make every row different and get a somewhat crazy looking afghan!

I just wanted to share a bit of my progress.  I would never have been able to successfully interpret the symbol pattern without Kolibri's help.  Though in following both her writing, and the symbols, I just wanted to add a bit... (If you have a chance Kolibri, can you check my work Wink )

Row 6 is like Row 3, but starts a bit different:  Ch5, skip ch 3 sp, sc in first 2dctog.  Ch2, skip next 2 2dctog, sc in next 2dctog.  From this point repeat  * to * from "Row 3" ending with ch3, skip ch3 sp, scin 4th chain from 2dctog below, turn.

Row 7 is like Row 4 but starts: Ch2.  From this point repeat * to * from "Row 4" ending with sc in 4th chain from left of ch2sp below.

It's interesting that Jessica Tromp's pattern alternates a big row of daisies with a little row.  Kolibri modified it because she noticed that Sonnet Bird's was all with 2dctog, where the pattern uses just dc for every other row of daisies.  Thank you kolibri for picking up on that! 

So I'm not very good a actually crocheting yet!  Cheesy  Here's what my trial looks like, (don't mind the colors, they're just practice colors!)
My first row, (not exactly like sonnetbirds)

My try so far,


Hows everyone else doing?
(PS -  Outofthequestion, I totally understand the excitement!!!  Everyday I can't wait to finish work so that I can run home to crochet!  Especially when I find a pattern I can't wait to try!)

hi Nomij...

First of all... I LIKE those colors! And your crocheting looks GREAT... I'm on like my 5th row of flowers. I'm just using scraps of yarn, so its all different colors. I'm not sure what you meant about the different sizes of flowers?? I actually bought the pattern from the Afagans by the pound, so maybe its something different??? Anyway, it was a good idea to practice first, tho... I think I'm learning as I go... My first few rows might not look as neat as the rest of the afagan... I'd take pics, but I'm between cameras right now... Will post pics of my progress soon, tho... Smiley Thanks for sharing.

Thanks Sonnetbird!  You are our inspiration!  Outofthequestion, the link to the jessica tromp free online pattern went 2dctog flowers then dc flowers, back and forth.  But the pattern in Sonetbird's book, (and now your book!) was only 2dctog flowers, so Kolibri made the changes when she transposed it for all of us!  BTW, I love how you said you were between camaras, the same way I say I am between Boyfriends! Lol!
