When my Mom and her siblings went to their parents' house to sort through things after they died, she ended up with a lot of Grandma's crochet stuff, including a crocheted flower square.  She figured it must have been the beginning of an afghan.  She decided to finish it with Grandma's yarns and give it to one of us who hadn't gotten one from her while she was alive.  Me!!!  I told her to just use a mix of whatever colors she had.  Well, Mom made about 35 flowers or so, and got halfway through adding the leaves.  Then her arm got really sore and she was having a hard time crocheting.  I told her I could work on it some until she felt better.  Well, she didn't and it was just an early symptom of her cancer spreading to all kinds of places that it shouldn't be.  So two years after Mom died, I've finally got back to working on the afghan.  And finishing it!  Yea!



I had to make a few more flowers to get it six by seven blocks, which ends up about queen sized.  I put Grandma's square in the center of an X of purple flowers so I could always figure out which one was hers.  I didn't really need to since I didn't bother to get a good match on the white yarn.  But there you go.



The ironic thing is, as I was attaching the last square next to Grandma's square, I discovered that her square had a mistake in it.  Each side should have 16 joining stitches.  That last square had 17!  To fix it properly would mean ripping back to the first round of white.  And I wasn't going to do that!  So I just fudged it in there.  But now I wonder: was that single square still sitting around at Grandma's because it was a mistake and she just throw it aside?  Have I now immortalized her mistake with a proud place of honor?  Maybe.  But I made the afghan to honor my Grandma and my Mom and all their work for others.  And I love it.

What an interesting story, and I'm glad you got to finish the blanket!  The Amish people always purposely make a mistake in their quilts to show that humans are not perfect...was your Grandma Amish, perhaps?  Wink

Thanks everyone!

LadybugsandBumblebe es -- No, she wasn't Amish.  But I love the sentiment.

Let me ask you other crocheters a question.  Does anybody else ever have the problem of a squeaking noise when their yarn moves up and down the hook?  (Probably a lot of blank stares at that.)  I think it might be because I use acrylic yarn (I saw you shudder) on an aluminum hook, but I'm trying to use up my stash.  Anybody know why it happens, or better yet, how to fix it?  It's almost like fingernails on a chalkboard.

What a treasure!  And a treat to read. 

There's a culture out there (Amish?) that actually add in a mistake to their quilts because they believe that only God is perfect.  Something like that.

have you tried rubbing your hook with wax paper to help it glide better? I sometimes get squeaks when I'm crocheting too tightly and need to go up a hook size  Smiley

This rocks so much. What a heartbreakingly beautiful story behind this afghan. The pattern itself is very pretty. Did you learn to crochet from your mother and she from hers?

And don't worry, you're not alone in the yarn squeaking, lol. I've never tried to remedy it, but alaura_borealis's idea of using wax sounds like a good try.

Thanks for all the compliments, and the advice about squeaky hooks.  I'm kinda' glad it isn't just me. Smiley

Woodlyn -- I'm sure my Mom learned from her Mom.  But I've always been a little too independent.  I wouldn't have listened while I was a teenager.  (Unfortunately, one of my daughters is taking after me.)  I actually taught myself as an adult, out of a book I inherited from my husband's Grandmother.  Come to think of it, all four grandmas (mine and his) were big crocheters.

This is just amazing. The store is so lovely and the blanket in and of itself is just beautiful. I'm sure that this is one of those heirloom pieces that will stay in the family for generations.

I'm so glad someone asked about that squeaking too! It is awful. I get that every now and again. I always thought it was because my loops were too tight, but I'm going to have to try the soap and water suggestion.

First, this is a really lovely blanket attached to some just beautiful family history. I learned to crochet from my grandmother, and I hope I can honor her the same way you and your mom did when she does pass. I love that the square was a off a stitch, and you found, in your grandma's possible mistake, a lot of love and a chance to have this fantastic memory.

On the question: Some acrylics can squeak on aluminum hooks. I've found stitching to a plastic or wooden hook takes care of the squeak, but other than that, I don't know. I am rather fond of acrylic because it lasts through just about everything and is easy to care for, so I work with it a lot for hats and stuff.

It's gorgeous and the story is simply wonderful.

ETA: The acrylic yarn and squeaking. Yarn nearly ALWAYS talks to me on my hook or needles, unless I create a huge open pattern.

Every piece of jewelry my grandpa made for us had a mistake in it. A pearl was chipped, a ruby didn't match, something like that. It annoyed me to look at but my mom loved it. It reminded her that is was handmade. This is a beautiful blanket with a beautiful story!

  Maybe your Grandma did set it aside because she thought it wasn't perfect. It just goes to show how we see our own mistakes but find beauty in the work of others no matter what.  You are fortunate to have and to have added to such a wonderful legacy.

This is a truly beautiful and amazing piece of work. But the best part is that it was made by three generations of crafters.

As far as acrylic yarn goes, if that's all you have easy access to, use it! I found this helpful tip for making it softer. I haven't tried it myself but I was told it does indeed work.

Here's the pattern.  (My SIL figured it out for my Mom from the original block.)

Starting with the color for the flower ch6 and close the ring.
round 1: ch5 (counts as 1dc and ch2), *dc in ring, ch2*, repeat between stars until 8dc and 8 spaces, slip st in third chain.
round 2: (sc, 3dc, sc) in each ch2 space around (8 petals)
round 3: *sc around next dc (on round 1), ch3*, repeat around
round 4: (sc, 5dc, sc) in each ch3 space around (8 petals)
round 5: *sc around next sc (on round 3), ch5*, repeat around
round 6: (sc, 7dc, sc) in each ch5 space around, join with slip st, cut and finish end (8 petals).

With green for leaves, *sc between any petals, ch5, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in next space between petals, ch5*, repeat around, join with slip st, cut and finish end (8 ch5 spaces and 4 sets of 2 leaves).  What you have now should look more like a square.

With background color (white in mine):
round 1: join in ch2 space between leaves, ch3 (counts as dc), dc in same corner, 5dc in each of next 2 ch5 spaces, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in next corner ch2 space, repeat pattern around, finish with 2dc in first corner, join with hdc to third chain of beg ch3.
round 2: ch3 (counts as dc), turn work, 1dc in same corner space, dc in each dc to next corner, (2dc, ch2, 2dc) in corner, repeat pattern around, finish with 2dc in first corner, join with hdc to third chain of beg ch3.
Repeat round 2 to desired size.  (My blocks have 5 rounds total of the background and are about 12" across.)  Cut and finish end.  Join blocks as desired.

Enjoy!

Thank you so much. This was very nice of you to give me the pattern. I can hardly wait to start it. I have a tablecloth that my mom started and I was able to add on to it. I have since given it to my daughter to add on to it if she wishes. It is so important to hand these lovely hand made items down to other generations. Again, thank you so much and happy crocheting.

While my mom, who is also a crocheter, is still alive but unwell,  I am going to learn a few more things and finish off some of her projects as she supervises...this story will keep me going...thank you for sharing.

That is such a special afghan and when you pass it to your daughters they can also share the story.
My hook squeeks, too - but I don't mind the noise.
I was sitting doing my tails one day and the budgie started making weird squeaking noises. I couldn't figure out what he was doing. Then when I started crocheting again, I noticed that the budgie was squeeking again. I couldn't figure out where he'd learned such a high pitched strange squeek which he only did when I sat on the couch. Finally I figured it out that he was "crocheting" with me as I crocheted. So cute. So I am very lucky to have a budgie that thinks he can crochet lol.
