3  CROCHET / Crochet: Completed Projects / green and cream afghan - with pattern on: June 07, 2010 07:31:41 AM
this is a thank-you gift i made for some friends. i wanted to make another one like the blue and white one i did for my parents a few years ago, but lost the pattern. so i sort of winged it. i think it came out pretty well.  Smiley

i used caron simply soft yarn in dark green, light green, and cream (i don't remember the official names of the colors). i think i chained about 260 to begin with, and that was the length, not the width, of the afghan. sorry if the pattern's a little confusing, i don't write out patterns very often so i'm not that good at it yet.

dark green: dc for 6 rows
light green: sc for 1 row, popcorn stitch for 2 rows, sc for 1 row
dark green: dc for 6 rows
cream: sc for 1 row, fan stitch for 3 rows, sc for 1 row

repeat until afghan is desired size. i did 5 repetitions of the "dark green, light green, dark green, cream" sequence, then ended with dark green, light green, dark green.

for border, sc in cream all around, then fan stitch all around, then sc again all around.

popcorn stitch:
make 5 hdc in one stitch. take hook out of loop. insert hook into the first of the 5 hdc, reinsert it into the loop of your last hdc (where you took it out), draw that loop through the loop on your hook. chain one. skip a stitch, then do another popcorn stitch into the next stitch.

fan stitch:
make 5 hdc in one stitch. skip 4 stitches, make 5 hdc into 5th stitch. skip 4 stitches, repeat.

good job on the costume - he looked great!  and he won a prize.   Smiley  the party was a good idea, we should definitely do it again.

for my cousin's costume party a few weeks ago, i decided to be a fairy, since i already had a skirthttps://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=302934.0.  i still needed to make wings though, so i looked up a few of the tutorials for fairy wings, and this is what i came up with.  my mom helped me paint/decorate them.  we have completely different personalities, which is evident when you compare the 2 sides.  my mom did the wings on the left, and i did the ones on the right.  we decided the finished product could be a psych study on contrasting brain types.  also, when i put them on they were lopsided.  so, i was the lopsided fairy.  Smiley

i used the leftover wire and flowers to make a wreath

my mom's brain:

my brain:

a bunch of flowers in the middle to try to hide the mess of duct tape and wire
