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!
