Afghans I Have Made- Crochet- Argyle

 
We have to skip one afghan for now. Not only is #4 unfinished, it's also unfound. Looked where I thought it was today, but no luck. I'm kind of stumped actually, but we'll skip ahead. If you guessed that #4 was afghan stitch you were wrong. However, #5 reverted back to that.

For a change, though, instead of embroidering a design on later, this one has the design crocheted right in.

And it was a gift for Omer, so it had to be red and blue. The flash makes the red look a bit orang-y. It's not really.

He still uses it. The afghan stitch makes a really dense fabric, and Om likes to be warm. He's usually got it wrapped around his feet while relaxing.

This one was made in strips which were sewn together and a border added. It was made in approximately 1986-87 I can only date the creation by the fact that I know I worked on it quite a bit at a friend's house, and I was there mostly because our Joshua was in high school with her son.

I'm happy to report that this was the last afghan-stitch afghan I made. Variety is good, and I'm glad I evolved!
