A few years back, I decided to make an ASL ABC blanket. I had to create each chart from scratch, plus crochet each square. It took me two months from start to finish to complete this blanket. It's massive, but I love how it turned out!

I am hard of hearing. I was inspired to create this when I had a hearing test done and discovered I needed a hearing aid. Not knowing that I would need a hearing aid at some point in life, I took a bunch of ASL classes in my late teens. I took ASL 1 & 2 in high school, then in community college I took ASL 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. I also took a Deaf Culture class.

This was a labor of love, and I've received so many kind words from hundreds of people. The free charts can be downloaded here:

Loved this afghan the first time I saw it done and,  I love it just as much when I saw yours. Well done!
