I've been making the circle to squares afghan from the lion brand website free patterns. Its a great project and moves fast. However, i used DK not worsted for my project, because I was stash busting, so it turned out a little smaller than I need it to. I want it to fit a single bed and have room to "fall" a little at the sides.
Here are some pics of it so far. One is it on my king size bed (I have a very tall husband lol)
I would like some opinions on a few things please, to help me make up my mind.
1. Should I crochet another whole blanket?
2. If I do, how should I expand it? It needs to stay fairly long and thin. Should I just try to arrange the squares at the sides and pick the best?
3. I changed the pattern so I used more colours. I used a random stripe generator to help me pick the colour changes for the little squares, then reversed the colours to get the colour changes for the larger squares (16sml, 5 med, 3 lge). I am trying to decide whether to
a) simply repeat the squares that I have already done,
b) reverse the colours but keep them the same size,
c) reverse the colours but make some med, lge, and some lge, medium, OR
d) come up with new stripes and follow the "pattern" above.
4) I'm also dithering with how to stitch them up. You're "meant" to have the same outer colour, making it easy to stitch, but I was thinking of crocheting the squares together, but wasn't sure whether to add another colour, possibly a straw/hay colour?
Sorry for all the questions, I just find it hard to make up my mind sometimes! Thank you!
