OK - my swap partner got her package so I am posting my photo of the little swiss roll I said I would have to make when everyone thought my afghan looked like one, LOL!

here is a picture:


it is not the best of photos, and hers looks better so look at it on the chocoholics unanomous thread here:

http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=218961.msg2433662#msg2433662

tute: if I can do this...

first you want to crochet a rectangular piece out of dark brown or maybe black for the cake part -

ch 8, ch 2 for the turn,
turn and in the 3rd ch sc in each ch all the way across (should be 8 sc)
*ch 2 turn and sc in each hdc all the way across*
repeat until you have about 10 rows and finish
tuck in your ends

now the hard part (because I am not sure I can explain it)

slip stitch into the 3rd row of the brown (black) with white and sc into each sc across that row (should have 8 sc)
*ch2 and turn, then sc in each sc
ch2 and turn, then sc in each sc
ch2 and turn, then slip stitch with a sc into the corresponding row in the brown (black) and sc in each sc in that row*

repeat until you have reached the end of the brown (black) and then continue with two more rows of white
tuck in your ends

now do the same thing to the white that you did to the first rectangle, only with another rectangle of brown (no black this time - this is the frosting) however when you get to the end of the white, roll the rectangles up so they are looking like a swiss roll, and then slip stitch into the brown every third row as you continue until you have covered the white with brown.

slipstitch in each sc on the last row so the end of the rectangle is connected to the body of the roll, and tuck in the last end of thread.

so you end up with three rectangles, each connected to the one before it, and each longer than the one before it - all rolled up and then extending the outer rectangle to reach all around the rolled up piece.

I know this is clear as mud - I don't read patterns and have a hard time writing them and this one was really an experiment for me!

I will try to make another and take photos as I go next time!

thank you everyone!

a king size bed afghan was the inspiration for this swiss roll which is about 4 inches long and 2 inches across, LOL!

I had fun making it for my swap partner!

I hope the pattern makes sense...
