It’s afghan making season once again, folks. I decided we really needed a new afghan for our front chair. Something smallish that we could just pop on over our legs in the chilly winter months. We have a lot of blues and purples in that room, so I decided to make this Stained Glass Motif Afghan. It was a free pattern, and it looked very easy.
One thing I liked about it was that you use a lot of different colors. Sometimes I get bored using the same color throughout. This gave me a chance to change things up. So DH and I picked out some colors.
Then, you make about 55 of these little circles. They are really easy and a good pattern to make while you watch TV because you don’t really need to concentrate on it, plus they are small so you can knock out several a night.
After you make the circles, you add a black border to each and then begin sewing them together. I wasn’t able to finish the whole thing this week, but I did manage to sew everything together in one strip. (Now I have to go back and connect the strips.)
Next week: The finished afghan!

I love the look of stained glass quilts and afghans! Those are some great colors you picked out Cherie…looking forward to seeing the finished afghan 🙂
Beautiful color combination, Cherie. I’ll check back next week to see how it comes out. You must speed crochet. It would take me months to finish an afghan!
This one is a smaller one so it was easy! Although it’s funny, my grandma used to say I crocheted faster than anyone she’d ever seen!
