This pattern supposedly was in the March ‘92 Better Homes & Gardens Magazine. Why don’t they ever publish crochet patterns in those kinds of magazines anymore? This picture came from Maze Walker on Flickr. I’ve had this picture saved forever.
I’m so excited because I got lucky today and found this back-issue online. I can see it on the the cover so I know it’s in there. I should have it in a couple of days since it’s being shipped Priority Mail. Yipee! I think it will be a fun pattern to make. All the different colors should keep it interesting. I can imagine it will make a pretty matching pillow too.
Do you like it?
Do you LOVE it?
I think I would make all the background colors the same (greenish-aqua) and keep the joining color brown. Or maybe vice-versa. Yes, mocha brown backgrounds with greenish-aqua joining. I can picture it in my mind. It will be something pretty to use as décor and not necessarily a useful blanket. It would be pretty in an entryway or living room draped on a bench or chair. Such a pretty heirloom to have for my children or grandchildren some day. The thought of it living on in the family long after I’m gone makes me happy.
Speaking of heirlooms, I so badly wish that I had a grandmother still alive to sit and crochet with. My Granny was a wonderful crocheter. I have a couple of her afghans that I cherish and use occasionally. I sit and examine the stitches and wonder what she was thinking about as she made them. I know she was probably watching a soap (she loved watching them), or she was watching a baseball game with my Pawpaw like they always did.
Enough of that.
I’m outta here.
