For my partner in the Mini 13 Days of Halloween swap!  I did run out of time to do the stitching, I wanted to add some of the designs to the sold colors and add the "stitched together" lines, but... that did not happen.  Still, I'm pretty happy with it, and it's completely reversible and machine washable!

This is her picture of it, because I couldn't get one from far enough away because I wasn't about to lay it on my floor (Australian Shedhound in residence - I did send it through the washer AND dryer before sending!).

Should you like to make one of your own, the pattern I made up to use is here (although I cut the top short because I thought the corner pieces went in too far for "sleeves" and it was already well lapghan size! 

Crocheted all in single crochet with an K hook it ended up about 4' x 5'

I didn't carry any of the yarn between sections, so it got a little... twisted... at times:

(I need a much more comfortable chair to work in , but my printer held all the different skeins of yarn beautifully!  Of course, there was no moving it while I worked on it...)

The key was to twist it clockwise one time, then counter-clockwise the other, and the lines of yarn would twist, and then untwist... theoretically...

Overall I'm pretty happy with it, and even more happy that she seemed to really like it!

Making an afghan out of Sally's dress is brilliant!  And good job working with all those different yarns; it would've driven me batty!

I have boxes of vintage piano music.  Some as old as 1890's!  PM me if you'd like some!
