Afghans I Have Made- Crochet- Lacy Diamonds

This crocheted afghan has already been featured on the blog, at the time I made it. This was number 7 afghan I made. It was a gift for my friend Irene.

I finished it seven years ago. That's really hard to believe!

The other thing that is hard to believe is that this beauty was a free pattern that came on the back of a yarn wrapper. I tweaked it a little bit to make the design more regular, but not much. When I chose it, I was specifically looking for a pattern that did not look like every other crocheted afghan in the books.

Although it looks as if it was made in strips, the entire afghan is made in one large piece. This eliminates sewing things together later. Although the work gets heavier and bulkier as you go, I like not having to sew things. An edge was added later to feature colors in Irene's house.

Here's a close up of one section of the pattern.

That's a pretty one. Patterns like that always frustrated me because I would love my place.
